Testimonial for Katie Nyberg

Katie is a caring, thoughtful, energetic and practical doula.  I met Katie when I was looking for someone to assist with natural childbirth in a hospital setting.  I had two unassisted births several years ago in a large hospital on the East Coast.  It was a great hospital should there have been an emergency, but otherwise completely impersonal and cold.  I have two wonderful daughters,but I don't have any comforting memories of how they were born.  Under Katie's patient guidance, my son was born completely naturally, safely and beautifully.  I couldn't have done it without Katie.  She met with me several times before labor.  We discussed my birth plan, talked about using yoga in childbirth, and whether I wanted to save the placenta. I was going to try for a natural childbirth, but I was a wimp and wasn't sure I could do it.  Katie was understanding and encouraging.  My waters broke in the middle of the night two weeks before the due date.  I called Katie and she explained to me the consequences of going to the hospital: pitocin, induction, a guaranteed medicated birth.  My labor didn't progress for 20 hours.  Katie came and stayed with me trying everything from breathing, to massage, to reflexology.  I ended up at the hospital 3 hrs before my son was born.  I was almost fully dilated.   I remeber a bath tub, Katie's hands protecting me from hitting the spout every time I exhaled and soft light from candles that she thoughtfully spread around.  I remember Katie negotiating on my behalf my need to move around, making sure I wasn't hooked up to any equipment.  Katie also had good advice on where to find natural care after birth.  She is dependable, down to earth and flexible, a doula by calling.
