My husband and I are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Katie as our doula throughout my pregnancy and the birth of our daughter. She is truly an expert in her industry, and we felt empowered and more at ease in our journey after just our first session with her.
Katie equipped us with the information we needed (and wouldn’t have known) to not only make us feel prepared, but able to advocate for ourselves throughout delivery and ask the appropriate questions when needed. She was sure to equip us and support us without interfering with our experience/roles. As first time parents, we felt a lot calmer and more comfortable about labor, and knew we could rely on her for specifics that we were otherwise unsure about, like when to go to the hospital and what signs to look for to know if I was actually in active labor. She also provided tools to help cope with contractions and other aspects of the labor process. Katie also has an amazing network of care providers that have been beyond valuable in both pregnancy and postpartum - everything from lactation consultant
to physical therapist to pedi dentists. Having a good care team as I have journeyed into motherhood has been crucial to feeling like I’m providing a safe and healthy world for my baby (and myself!).
Not only was Katie very responsive, she is also extremely professional while still creating a personal connection that made me feel safe throughout the entire experience. I am 100% certain that the positive experience we had was largely due to our work with her and having her present at our birth. Me and my husband highly recommend Katie to everyone going through this experience for prenatal, birth and/or postpartum.
