Testimonial for Katie Terry

My whole life I thought I would have an epidural when I had a child. I looked at women that gave birth naturally and wondered why they would chose that.

Then, I went to a birthing class and didn’t have a peace about my lifelong plan. I wanted to move during labor, I wanted to be aware of every feeling of this process because it may be the only time I experience it, and I worried about the possible complications involved with an epidural.

Because of this by the end of the class I had made the decision to have a natural childbirth if possible.

Because of this change my OBGYN recommended I hire a doula. Katie immediately came to mind. My husband and I met with her and reviewed the all the doulas she worked with. While all seemed great we chose Katie because we knew her, and I felt comfortable with her. She walked through every step with me making sure I was comfortable with the decisions that were placed before me. She helped me work through my labor and offered useful positions at different points to help with pain and positioning.

Because of my blood pressure I was not able to labor in the suit with the tub out hospital provided. So, Katie brought and set up a tub for me. Without her that wouldn’t have been an option and was a complete game changer for me.

She was an integral part of my birthing experience and I 100% want her there again if I get the honor of having a 2nd child.
