Testimonial for Kim O'Rourke

The second that Kim answered her phone, I knew immediately that I was making the right decision. My first birth with my first daughter didn't go so great and my husband and I decided that we wanted someone to be there for support and to advocate for us. I also knew that I wanted an unmedicated birth and that I needed someone there who knew what they were doing.  I  talked to Kim for about a half an hour that first call. We decided to meet with Kim at a Starbucks a few days later. We walked in and she gave me the biggest hug and the warmest welcome. I felt so comfortable with her. We discussed her philosophies and her experience as a doula. She explained her services and answered the many questions that my husband and I both had. After that meeting we signed the contract. For the next couple of months she would just check in over text to make sure everything was ok. But it was towards the end of of my pregnancy that her services became immeasurable. My second daughter came three days later than my due date and I called Kim every day crying and she was always there to make me feel better. She talked me through everything and she was someone I really relyed on to help me get through, what seemed like, the longest pregnancy ever. The night I went into labor, my water broke and I called her immedietly. It was 2:30 in the morning and she answered her phone immedietly. She told me she would meet me at the hospital. My labor was so fast but she made it just in time. She held my hand and helped me breathe. It was just a comfort to know that she was there by my side. And my husband happily stood back while I gave birth to our second daughter. After she was born, Kim stayed with us for another 3 hours to help us get comfortable at the hospital. After we got home, Kim did one house visit and still checks in from time to time. She is incredible and I wouldn't have been able to do it without her! I highly recommend Kim O'Rourke she is really amazing.
