Testimonial for Kimberly Sebeck

My primary reason for hiring a doula was to have a consistent person during this major life experience who knew ME--my personality, my desires, my fears--and who would advocate on my behalf to whichever doctor ended up at my delivery. This was a preliminary, precautionary measure on my behalf that ended up being exactly what we needed due to the circumstances of my delivery. The hospital at which I delivered unfortunately presented itself as being much more conducive for natural childbirth than it actually was. As a result, my husband and I encountered continual pushback on our efforts to deliver naturally from the doctor on call and nurses. If we had not had Kimberly, I know we would have undoubtedly caved to their recommendations. We did not have the knowledge to distinguish what was presented as fact as merely an option, so having Kimberly in the role of counselor during those moments of consultation and decision-making was truly priceless. I also didn't want to fight unnecessary battles, and Kimberly was able to help us determine when to follow their lead and when to hold firm to our plans. My husband and I owe our natural delivery to Kimberly. Because I was not progressing as quickly as needed, I ended up receiving increasing levels of Pitocin prior to my delivery (18 hours after my water broke). She was absolutely incredible, steadfast and comforting in her efforts to help me find ways to manage the ever-increasing pain and helping my husband know how best to assist me through every stage. Kimberly was an amazing teacher, advocate, and counselor whose wisdom we could trust during my pregnancy, delivery, and in the first, scary weeks of parenthood. The financial investment you will make in hiring Kimberly as your doula will not even come close to comparing to the investment of time, knowledge, and care she will put into your experience of bringing a child into this world. Kimberly is the best in the business!
