Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

Before I became pregnant, I knew that having a doula present for our birth was a non-negotiable, and as soon as I met Kira, I knew she was the one. My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Kira and we are so incredibly thankful she was at the birth of our daughter.

I intended to labor and deliver unmedicated, and Kira provided amazing physical, emotional, and mental support throughout my labor. She had great coping techniques and her calm presence helped keep me grounded through each contraction. She also showed my husband how to provide pressure on my hips, and he was able to provide physical support for me as well. Kira was great at being as hands-on or hands-off as we needed/wanted.

When my labor wasnt progressing after 36 hours, and I ended up needing an epidural and eventually an emergency C-section, which was very traumatic for me, Kira was the one constant piece throughout the whole ordeal. Everytime the doctor came to talk to us about next steps, Kira talked us through all the posibilities and pros/cons. She is incredibly knowledgable and was able to give us perspective that the doctor's and nurses may not have had time to give. What would have been a very overwhelming situation for my husband and I was made much less so with Kira's presence.

Kira came to our house a few days after our daughter's birth, and worked with us on breastfeeding and babywearingK, and also took some time to debrief our birth, which I so appreciated.  Her knowledge, professionalism, and calm spirit make her worth every single penny, and we will definitely be using her for the birth of our future kids!
