Testimonial for Katie White

Initially, I looked into finding a doula to help me ease my anxieties about childbirth. I was hopeful that a doula would be someone who would advocate for me during the delivery (reducing the stress/burden on my husband) and to help us to feel informed in the event that birth did not go as expected.  Although I envisioned doulas being huge advocates for completely natural childbirth, it was also very important to me to find a doula that would be supportive of my choice to opt for the epidural when the time came. Katie was all of the above and more. She is hands-down the BEST decision I could have made. In early labor, she kept me calm and, at times, laughing. She gave me various positions and to alternate through as the contractions progressed to help expedite labor and better position the baby. This made time pass quickly.  As the pain intensified, she offered convincing reassurance. She encouraged me to trust my body and to to stay top of my fear - nudging me to request the epidural that she knew I wanted when I felt ready and before I reached the point of panic. Once getting the epidural, my body relaxed and I progressed very quickly - almost 7cm in just under 3 hours.  If not for Katie’s attention to my quickened breathing, we would not have known that it was time to summon the nurse who checked - and confirmed - that I was 10cm dilated. Katie confidently and calmly coached me throughout the pushing phase without in any way diminishing the importance or necessity of my husband’s role by my side, and when my daughter was born she captured the most beautiful raw photos of the moment as well as a video of our daughter’s first cry.  In the end, our daughter’s birth was everything I wanted, and it is now a beautiful memory that will always make me smile. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Katie!
