Testimonial for Amanda Kling

Throughout our pregnancy, Amanda offered support and regularly checked in. She made sure I was setting proper boundaries and taking steps to ensure my mental health was protected. As birth approached, she made sure I had resources and plans in place for pp and we regularly discussed what I have needed/found helpful in previous labors.

 

At 41 weeks, my water broke. Once Amanda arrived she got right to work with hip squeezes, back rubs, calming words and regular reminders to unclench my jaw and relax my shoulders. After verifying that I still wanted a water birth, she helped me upstairs to the tub. She took photos and videos and kept me laughing through some of the more difficult contractions. 

 

After baby arrived, she helped me out of the tub and into the shower, helped me dress and get to bed. She captured images during the newborn exam, including some tender moments with our 3 yo and his new brother. She made sure I was comfortable and that I ate something before leaving. She checked in regularly in the following days as we struggled to nurse in spite of oral ties, offering advice/support. 


When pp services began, we started each day with a check-in, asking how I was feeling physically and emotionally and reviewing my list of things to accomplish. Once baby nursed, she would place him in the ring sling and set to work while I went upstairs to shower. She did dishes, folded laundry, read stories to my other 4 children, and helped troubleshoot how to make our routine easier. The kids looked forward to her visits and loved sharing their favorite stories and having dance parties together while I showered. She always made sure I had something to eat and drink before she left each day. I cannot speak highly enough of Amanda and the various ways she supported our family through pregnancy and postpartum.
