Testimonial for Kathy Kinard CD CPD CBP HTSMP

We could not be more happy with our decision to hire Kathy. From our first meeting, she exuded a calming and supportive presence that proved crucial to my success in having a VBAC delivery. Kathy went above and beyond in her support to us throughout my pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

During our prenatal preparations, Kathy provided healing touch, resources for baby positioning and what to expect during birth, emotional support during a stressful pregnancy scare, and frequent check-ins to make sure we felt prepared. I was especially grateful for Kathy’s efforts in checking in with how my husband was feeling about the upcoming birth process.

Kathy was super helpful during my unavoidable induction to help us feel that we were making the best decisions for a healthy baby and mama, all while trying to stick to our birth plan as much as possible given the circumstances. Kathy proved crucial to the mental and emotional stability of both me and my husband during this time when things were not going very smoothly. She also provided some much needed relief during my labor to allow my husband to take breaks to get some rest so that he could be ready to help when I truly needed him.

When I made it to active labor and the pushing phase, I was so grateful for Kathy’s support. While the nurses were great, they had other duties, and while my husband was willing to do anything I needed, both he and I had never witnessed a vaginal birth so our knowledge of the process was entirely theoretical at that point. Kathy was the perfect puzzle piece where she had both the knowledge about birthing and was there solely to support us. I truly do not know whether I would have been able to be successful with a VBAC without Kathy’s invaluable efforts and support.

We cannot thank Kathy enough for helping us through this life-changing experience. We will be forever grateful to her and would highly recommend her for all your doula needs.
