Testimonial for Katie White

Katie was the best birth support we could have asked for. We had a cesarean with our first birth, right at the start of COVID, and knew we needed extra support for this second pregnancy if things were going to be different. I was set on a VBAC from the very beginning, and Katie just kept telling me that this would be an entirely new story. She never doubted that I could do it! After our initial interview, Katie checked in regularly throughout my pregnancy to see how I was feeling and what other prep I was doing for birth (working with my midwives, pelvic floor PT, etc.) She praised me for putting the time and energy needed into our birth plans and it was so encouraging. We met a few times in my third trimester to review positions, early labor tactics, coping preferences, and partner support, as well as make a plan for postpartum care. Then at 40+3 the day came! We kept in close contact with Katie all morning and afternoon, working through early labor and following her guidance for positions and movements to get baby engaged and help labor become more consistent. Those things certainly worked, because things went from 0-60 at home very quickly and we rushed off to the hopsital. Katie met us there, walking into the room just as my water was breaking! From then on she was 100% the grounding support I needed. She was somehow able to physically support me, say just what I needed to hear, and keep me comfortable with cold cloths all at the same time. She helped me dig deep when things got hard and reminded me of all the work I did to get to that point. Just over an hour at the hospital total, 45 minutes of pushing, and our second baby boy arrived via unmedicated VBAC! Katie was even able to capture photos and video of the amazing moments during and after - she did it all! She stayed with us for the golden hour, checking on me while everyone tended to baby, and then continued to check in postpartum (and now!). I can't recommend Katie enough - we love her.
