Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

I started out thinking I wanted to hire a doula to support my husband during the birth of our daughter. I wanted someone (not me) who could direct him, and help him, help me through the process. What I didn’t know was how much I needed a doula for myself, to help me through the unmedicated birth that I wanted, and to give me the birth experience that I hoped for.

I’m not sure how we would have gotten through our birth without Kira and her support! From the beginning, when I first reached out to Kira, she was super communicative and responsive. After meeting her in person, I knew I wanted to hire her. She has such a warm and calming presence, and her confidence about the birthing process was extremely reassuring for a first-time mom.

Leading up to my birth, I had lots of questions that Kira was gracious enough to answer and support though my many text messages. And, when I actually began labor, she was over at our house in the middle of the night – ready to go! My birth progressed quicker than I thought it would, and Kira was right next to me, helping me breath, advocating for me, and was great at reading what I needed (even when I didn’t know what I needed). Kira was amazing at keeping me present and focused throughout my contractions to help with pain and focus. She was also great at helping find roles for my husband to support me, and helped him grow his own confidence as a new dad in the process.

I hope that all birthing mama’s have the opportunity to have the kind of support Kira provided my family. It was really a blessing to have.

We also hired Kira on to be a post-partum doula after our birth, as my husband did not get to take any time off, and we don’t have family in the area. Having her around in those first few weeks were invaluable in helping me grow my own confidence as a new mom, and made me feel less alone in the process. Thank you, Kira!
