Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

This was our first child and we really weren't sure what it would be like to have someone else (besides the hosipital staff) in the delivery room with us. However, it was easy to feel very comfortable around Kira from our first meeting. She's generally fun to be around, but also extremely knowledgeable about pregnancy, labor, and all post-partum milestones and transitions. She answered all of our questions (that I'm sure she's heard 1000 times) with interest and empathy.

Our first daughter decided to make an earlier-than-expected arrival to the world (about a month before her due-date). She was born healthy and natural, and Kira was both a support for myself - before, during, and after labor - but also a great support for my husband to have someone to talk to and laugh at his terrible jokes.

She was also a consult for us about some of the major decisions we needed to make leading up to our labor. We ended up making a decision that was supported by the hospital, but did not align precisely with their policy guidelines for induction vs. "expectant management". In our particular instance, it was so nice to have someone to talk to that has experienced a number of unique pregnancies and births that could relate to us, but also wasn't the hospital staff that ultimately had a policy. Kira didn't provide any medical advice, but absolutely provided us with the confidence and the empowerment to make the decision for ourselves with the doctors. "Every birth is different and everyone's birth story is different" (which you'll hear 1M times over the course of your pregnancy), but Kira was able to take her prior experience and support our particular family through the decision that we faced.

Kira was great to work with in many different regards and we would highly recommend her for anyone considering a doula.
