Testimonial for Allison Kohl

I started working with Allison late into my pregnancy and Allison still made significant efforts to connect with me despite the short time between our first contact and my due date. She also gave me a ton of reources and information, including allowing my mother-in-law to participate in our early discussions.

Allison was highly responsive and always on call. She constantly reminded me to never hesitate reaching out to her, regardless of time of day/night. She managed expectations by informing me of her schedule, including her planned holidays. She made strong efforts to establish clear communication lines between us.

She was very informed and up to date on all pregnancy and post-partum related support areas. I felt 100% supported and she was able to keep my anxieties as a first time mom in check. She was gentle and supportive during my birth and reminded me of my birth plan and expectations -- which really helped calm me down and accept the outcome of my birth (did not go as I envisioned). 

I appreciated Allison's flexibility and efforts in working around my schedule prior to birth, and after birth as a post-partum doula. To accomodate my needs, she enlisted other doulas to ensure I receive the support I need where she could not be available -- she made sure she did not over-extend herself to be 100% there for each of her commitments.

On top of all this, Allison had excellent inter-personal skills. She connected well with my entire family, my midwife, and other doulas. In spite of her busy schedule and being a mom herself, she takes pride in her work and ensures she keeps her certifications up to date, attends classes to learn latest recommendations and guidelines.

I would work with Allison again on a future pregnancy (hopefully) and I would recommend Allison to all my family and friends who may need a doula in the future.
