Testimonial for Kimberly Duran CD(DONA): Sacred Time Birth Services

Choosing Kim as our doula was undoubtedly one of the best decisions my husband & I have made. Kim is a truly exceptional at what she does- we absolutely recommend her.

When I found out I was pregnant I was scared. My mom had a grueling & traumatizing labor- I was determined not to have that type of birthing experience. I told my husband I wanted a Doula he said he thought it was a waste of money, but would support me.

We chose Kim because she was calming, practical & seemed to flex her energy & communication styles to fit the people she worked with. She genuinely sought to identify & support my husband & I with our individual needs; she let us lead. For my husband that was spending time prior to our delivery understanding the process & decisions we may need to make- he is planner & does not do well under stress. For me- it was providing tools, coaching & the reassurance needed so I was positive, confident & prepared for labor. That work started well before & extended past my labor. Kim took it bit by bit so it was not overwhelming & she affirmed we comfortable.

Kim was always available and let us choose how best to communcate. When I went into labor she came to the house & worked with us- I felt safe & supported. At the hospital she was like an angel floating around, coordinating with my husband & the hospital staff, allowing me to stay positive & focused. It was a million little things- like the fact that she greeted me at the hospital entrance while my husband parked the car so I was not alone. She set us up for success & made sure my husband felt included & a part of the journey. After the birth she was there to help us settle in at the hospital & at home. Her guidance was spot on, her coaching was tailored our needs & she made a choppy process feel seamless. I am not religious, but I will tell you Kim was our angel & we are forever grateful for her.
