Testimonial for Kira Hendricksen

Kira's presence during my pregnancy, labor, and delivery were key to my VBAC success, though I'm certain she wouldn't let me give her that much credit. In 2019 I had an unplanned c-section after 2+ days of labor, and while my partner was a rockstar, it's clear now that hours of research do not replace the guidance a doula provides. And it certainly doesn't replace the love, humor, and strength Kira brought to my second birth. With my second baby came another long labor, but both my partner and I had "ground control" in the form Kira. Kira helped me advocate for myself through exhaustion, she anticipated my needs, she helped me strategize the next step, and when it seemed my labor was headed toward another c-section, she pulled out all the stops and maintained hope that I could get the birth I had worked for. My birth was so hard, but with Kira's expertise the feeling of inadequacy and defeat I was left with after my first birth morphed into a sense of peace. I realized my body and mind were capable and strong all along, regardless of my birth outcome. Every year on my daughter's birthday I am certain I will fondly remember Kira helping us bring our baby earthside.
