Testimonial for Lola Katschke CD(PALS), PCD(NAPS), CLE, NCS

My husband and I were fortunate to have Lola as our doula for the birth of our second daughter, where I had a successful VBAC. We loved Lola's energy from the start. We had scheduled intros with two other lovely doulas, but came back to Lola because she made us feel so confident in her knowledge & education, and her commitment to fully supporting us. She even provided detailed back-up doula info to make sure I was comfortable when she had to be out of town for a few days (even though it was well before 38 weeks).

Lola provided a wealth of information at each of our meetings with her - so valuable for first time parents and also a much-needed refresher for us having our second baby. One thing I loved was how she showed us how to use the TENS unit and left it with us so that we could make use of it during early labor, which we did. Lola made sure we were ready for postpartum too (breastfeeding, etc.), which I was grateful for because I had been so focused on labor & delivery.

Labor started slowly, and Lola checked in frequently to see how things were progressing and provide guidance (when she tells you to try to rest, REST :)). When things eventually picked up, Lola met us at the hospital at 2:30am and brought her calm, measured energy to the room. Sometimes people are concerned that a doula may take the place of their partner, but Lola not only supported me and my partner, she also left space for my partner to support me through labor & delivery. Lola helped us get breastfeeding off to a great start, too. Thank you, Lola!
