Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

When we met with Kira for the first time, we knew she was the doula for us. We didn't even meet with anyone else because we had such a good vibe. Before our little one arrived, Kira made sure we had all kinds of great info on natural induction, massage, baby positioning, etc. She was quick to check in and super helpful with little questions. She helped us put together a birth plan - we were planning an unmedicated hypnobirth, which Kira was fully prepared to assist us with, but she also gave us a chance to talk through options in case our plans needed to change.

Once the big day arrived, we had Kira's full attention. She met us at the childbirth center armed with apps, essential oils, heat pads, books, diagrams, and a fantastic, positive attitude. Kira served as a great liason between medical staff and us, especially when we needed to make choices that weren't our preference according to our plan.

I never really thought about how much "down time" you might have in a labor. Sixty second long contractions every 8-10 minutes leaves quite a bit of an hour to fill up. In working with Kira, we got to fill that time with jokes, smiles, and plenty of laughter. I'm very outgoing and people-oriented, so having that kind of fun atmosphere kept things light and easy for the majority of the time. Once things got more intense for me, Kira facilitated a space that my husband and I could be together practicing our hypnobirth techniques alone, but stayed close to support me.

Once the time came to bring our baby into the world, Kira really kept me grounded, even as the inevitable panic started to set in. Kira reminded me that I was in control and that the most intense part was nearly over. I calmly had my little girl an hour later.

Choosing Kira to be our doula was one of the best choices we made when planning our ideal birth. I am thrilled to have shared the experience with her and I encourage anyone else to make the same choice!
