What is a doula exactly? If you’re working with Kim, your doula is a lifeline, a confidant, a partner, a researcher, a safe zone, a problem solver. From the minute Kim came over for our first visit I was blown away at the knowledge she had and the fun and tangible way she could explain it to us. Her information is thorough and captivating and I learned so much from both of our sessions that was helpful for both me and my husband. I felt like we were in a really good position, prepared for our birth. However, I wasn’t prepared for a global pandemic to hit its height the week I gave birth. Kim was pivotal in helping us to navigate this scary and unprecedented situation. She was in touch with us daily as we navigated through the potential event of having my partner not with me. Though she could not be at the birth, she was on call for me and my husband the whole time. I spoke to her in the hospital afterwards as well and continue to speak to her now during my postpartum weeks. Rightly so, there is so much attention on the new baby, but there is so much happening to us, as the women that just delivered, and Kim is so attentive in that department. She checks in and does not take concerns lightly. Especially during this time of Covid-19, which can feel really isolating in so many ways, Kim makes me feel like I have a true advocate in my corner, making sure the end result of this journey is a healthy baby, a healthy mama, and a happy family. Thank you Kim. We are SO LUCKY to have you!!
