Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

I cannot say enough good things about Kira as my doula. She helped us bring our son into the world and I would not have be able to do it without her. From first meeting her, she was professional, warm, and kind--definitely someone we wanted with us. She is outgoing and cheerful, which we really appreciated as both my husband and myself are more introverted so having someone a little more outgoing than us was so helpful in that Kira was able to read our body language and anticipate our needs without us having to speak up. She was so helpful in creating our birth plan. I was very anxious able having a baby, so she helped us talk through every possibility for birth, good to bad, which helped relieve my anxiety. For the birth itself, Kira met us at the hospital as my water broke. She was so helpful as my contractions got more intense and painful, helping me in and out of the shower, in and out of the tub, and advocating for pain relief with my nurses, which allowed my husband to focus on comforting and being with me. As no birth plan survives the actual birth, Kira helped me with the decision to get an epidural, which allowed me to rest and gather energy to continue labor. When I needed a second epidural, naturally the doctor came while my husband was getting something to eat, but I had Kira with me so it was okay. She supported not only me, but my husband, helping him see how to comfort me, and allowing him to replenish his energy so he could take care of me. The best part though of having a doula was the post partum visit. The hospital stay was a whirlwind, so having a followup after we had caught our breath again was wonderful. She was a wealth of practical knowledge on how to live with a newborn baby. She showed us how to use our Moby wrap, how to swaddle better, which white noise app to install on our phones. All in all, I cannot recommend Kira enough as a kind generous lovely doula.
