Testimonial for Katie Terry

Pandemic pregnancy and raising babies during a pandemic is scary, but I’m beyond grateful for the unrelenting support of our doula.
I never felt unheard during my pregnancy because we chose to hire a doula. When I was stressed to the max about birthing under Covid restrictions, Katie helped me find alternative birthing places to bring me peace. When Henry came too fast for my own midwife to make it and a doctor with alternative preferences for birthing to my own arrived to deliver him, Katie was my voice since mine was lost somewhere in contraction land. I had him how my body felt was the most comfortable way to have him.
When people ask me why I hire a doula, my immediate response is somewhere along the lines of: she speaks the medical jargon and knows how to advocate for my wishes when I’m unable and that gives me confidence that my births will go smoothly and safely. She’s not just my support, she’s My husband’s as well. She did just those things. Our son made his entrance the way I had hoped he would- without unnecessary interventions and surrounded by my team, and some really amazing nurses- it was an incredible opportunity to have him at Lawrenceburg hospital with some of the coolest and calmest nurses ever. No one telling me how to lay or sit or stand or not to eat. I was super excited to get to eat there, but since we got to the hospital at 1:20 in the morning and Henry showed up at 2:40, snacks weren’t on my mind ??.
So for you Mamas navigating this really weird time to be pregnant- I would seriously encourage you to hire a doula.
She will center you and help you way after- through jaundice hospitalizations, tongue and lip ties, postpartum sads. Just do it. Best money you’ll spend.
