Testimonial for Amanda Kling

Amanda's care 100% lived up to the name of her company- a beautiful birth.  IWith Amanda's support, we had our second child in the truly beautiful homebirth. She's down to earth, warm, really knows her craft, and yet made it clear she was always going to see to it that we birthed the way we wanted and needed. I knew I would need reassurance, directions, and lots of physical support in my birthing time. And my spouse knew he would want direction and coaching. Amanda helped us plan comfort measures and coordinated with our midwife team so we all felt peaceful and ready for birth. Amanda checked in regularly with encouragement and gave me advice on how to safely help the baby get ready to be born.  She was extra cautious around Covid 19 exposure and we did video meetings until the birthday. A big shout out to her for wearing her mask the whole labor time even though terrible allergies!  Amanda was patient and reassuring as my long early labor waxed and waned, helping me let go of feeling "late" so I could rest and patiently wait for baby to be ready. She gave me the permission I needed to stop timing my waves when it was making me anxious. She knew where I was with the stages of labor by how I looked and sounded. She helped me do the Myles circuit to get baby engaged in the pelvis and bring on the waves. Amanda provided everything we needed- hours of hip squeezes, massages, direction to move to new positions, reminders to release my jaw and shoulders, a great sense of humor, and encouragement to feel comfortable, safe, and calm. I was glad to have her expertise on essential oils that relieved my pain and nausea. She even took photos of the birth. Amanda obviously delights in birth and is super knowledgeable--I loved that she explained what was happening in my body. Since birth, she's helped us celebrate, reflect, and given practical advice around healing and lactation. Amanda's services were the best investment we made for a beautiful birth.
