Testimonial for Katie Nyberg

We used Katie as a doula for the birth of our first daughter in December of 2011.  I also took her Natural Childbirth Class.  She was very knowledgeable about all aspets of pregnancy, birth, breast feeding, and many other topics.  She was always available to answer questions throughout my pregnancy and was a good source to turn to for advice.  I work in a medical setting, so I am more familiar with the medical side of things, but I found Katie very willing to help me find the middle ground where I was comfortable.  I ended up having a very short, though intense, labor.  However, even in our situation I found her presence to be very comforting and helpful!  It is nice to have a familiar voice and face, besides your husband, among the staff in the room.  I was able to concentrate on the things she was telling me better than the nurse.  The constant attention she was able to provide also helped when the nurse had other tasks to attend to.  I also feel it took a lot of pressure off of my husband and myself to have someone there who's job was to suggest labor comfort measures/positions/etc.  In that moment it is very hard to recall all of the options and ideas we learned in class, but Katie always had a suggestion ready.  With her help, I was able to avoid needing an epidural.  And our daughter was born alert and ready to talk to the world!  I also found it really nice to have someone in the room right after the delivery to stay with me and allow my husband to be with the baby while she was being weighed and measured.  I loved having Katie at our birth and would use her again in a heartbeat.  In fact, I can't imagine doing it without her!  And I would recommend her to anyone considering a doula, whether they want a very natural birth or a more medical birth.  I think Katie has experience and expertise in both areas and is an invaluable asset.
