Testimonial for Katie White

It has been hard to find words to describe just how helpful, supportive, amazing, and necessary Katie was before, during, and after my labor. In partnering with Katie, I truly feel that I not only gained a doula, I gained a friend.

Katie met with us twice before I went into labor, answering all of our questions and helping us feel informed. Then once I went into labor, Katie came to the hospital without me even having to ask her - knowing just when I'd need her. She stayed with me for the next 12 hours and supported me with words and actions as I labored naturally. She was there for each contraction, providing my husband and I with movements that would help move the baby down and out. She also made sure I ate and drank, and kept me going. She has incredible intuition - she knew what I needed when I had no clue! It goes without saying that she also supported my husband too, helping him participate and making sure he was taking care of himself.

This experience alone made me so grateful to have Katie - before my baby was born, I was already telling her how I was 100% going to partner with her again for any future children I have.

But where Katie went from "incredible" to "lifesaving" was when I experienced complications soon after I gave birth. Doctors were rushing around me, I was in a lot of pain, and I did not know what was going on. Katie was calm. She made sure my husband had our baby (and was sitting down). She then calmly explained to me what had happened and what would happen next (the doctors and nurses were too busy to do this, but it was something I really needed). When I think back on those 20 minutes, everything is a blur except Katie's eyes. She held my hand and made me look into her eyes, anchoring me physically and mentally, calming me and helping me get through it. Katie helped make a traumatic event manageable for both me and my husband.

Thank you Katie, for everything you do for mothers. You have a gift.
