Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

Kira first helped me through the birth of my second child in early 2016 and again with my third child in September 2017. My first child was a C-section and I had a fair amount of fear facing my first Trial of Labor After C-Section (TOLAC). Kira was helpful formulating a birth plan and going over possible scenarios for a TOLAC. Kira was a great help during labor, responding promptly and kindly to all my requests. There was not a single contraction in which Kira was not on point and ensuring I was on top of the pain. When I was in transition, Kira advocated strongly for me and was the difference between a calm start to pushing and what could have been an unprepared nurse catching a baby.

When I discovered I was pregnant again, there was no question in my mind as to whether or not to call Kira. We reviewed my birth plan and made some changes based on my experience with the first Vaginal Birth After C-Section (VBAC). My labor with the third child was about half as long and slightly more intense. Kira worked very well on a team with my nurse and husband and helped me find new ways to cope with pain of the contractions.

After each birth, Kira came to my home for a postpartum visit, reviewing the birth and helping with whatever was needed. She also took pictures after the births and during her postpartum visits, which documented time I had with my husband and children that would not otherwise have been captured.

I cannot thank Kira enough for her hard work and kindness. I strongly recommend her services to anyone looking for a doula or unsure about whether or not they need a doula.
