Testimonial for Katie Terry

I hope I never have to have a baby without Katie Terry. Being pregnant for the first time during a global pandemic was HARD. She was there every step of the way humoring my panicky texts when I was a pregnant medical professional with too much knowledge, reassuring me, sending me journal articles for me to read and check the research myself. As my third trimester arrived and I was still set on driving 2 hours to Birmingham to deliver at a hospital I trusted, she supported my decision while also giving me the direct pro/con list I needed to hear. When I made the decision to change hospitals and OBs at 34weeks, she helped me make the tough transition and reassured me..lastly, when my daughter decided it was time to make her arrival, Katie was ON IT. My labor was going fast and I knew it, she was amazing at helping my husband be exactly what I needed, at talking to my hard headed self in the gentle yet direct way I needed, at advocating for me and what I wanted for my birth even before we ever arrived to the hospital (by calling ahead and ensuring I was admitted to one of the natural labor rooms at the hospital). Katie was 1000% born to be a doula and she is amazing at what she does. She goes above and beyond for every single client she works with. She even went as far as to buy and bring back dinner for my husband and I because the hospital cafeteria was closed and no one else could get us food because of covid restrictions! Gosh I could go on for days, as a nurse I watched her be understanding and flexible with my medical staff while requesting the things she knew I wanted and didn’t want. As a pediatric medical professional, I know how much of a difference it makes when the patient has an advocate…no one should have to have a baby without Katie Terry (or a doula of equal awesomeness) by their side.
