Without Kerry in the delivery room with my husband and me, I'm not sure who would've held my other leg. That's how vital she was!
I very much attribute the success of my VBAC to Kerry and Cara's wisdom, guidance, and support. The two were incredibly helpful and accessible and simply a call or text away at all times. They helped educate us and allowed us to be advocates for ourselves in the delivery room and in preparing our list of birth wishes.
When Kerry walked in the door during my labor, I was immediately at ease. She stuck by us the whole time, helping me communicate with the doctor and nurses, coaching me on how to push, and making me more comfortable. My husband and I both can't say enough about how reassuring her presence was, both before and during the birth.
I hadn't had a doula for my first child's birth and wasn't planning on contracting one for my second, but now I can't imagine doing it any other way or with any other doula team.
