Testimonial for Amy Kucharski, CD(DONA), HCHD

The missing piece to my pregnancy plan I almost didn’t realize I needed!

I would highly recommend Amy as a doula for expecting mothers. My birth experience was probably an 8 out of 10 (10 being perfect), in large part due to Amy. I felt very connected to Amy immediately and she was very friendly, relatable, and easy to talk to.

We met a few times before my due date to go over all kinds of info from what I can be doing to prepare myself, both mentally and physically, to my options on the big day to helping me put together my birth plan. She was very informative with any questions I had and never pushy to do things one way or another. As a FTM, I couldn’t believe how much I didn’t know. She was there to guide me through it all!

As soon as my water broke (at 4 am) I texted Amy and she instantly calmed me down. I felt comfortable laboring from home for a few more hours. Amy arrived at the hospital shortly after we did and held my hand through everything (Not literally, although she would if you wanted her to!)

It was all in the details that Amy took care of and I didn’t even have to think about or do myself. For example, she was able to get me a different nurse when I wasn’t really feeling the first girl I had. Before I knew it, someone else was taking care of me and she was fantastic! Let me tell you, it REALLY made all the difference! During labor, Amy brought LED candles to avoid harsh hospital lighting, kept my birthing music playing, applied counter pressure (for hours! Poor Amy!) and most importantly offered a calming presence throughout my experience.  She knew the best positions to move me around into and when to suggest I move around or drink more.

Before I got pregnant, I didn’t even know what a doula was, but I am sure glad I found Amy! She definitely improved my overall birthing experience and I would use her again for a future birth in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!
