Testimonial for Kayla Wolfe

With a history of miscarriages, Kayla was recommended to us. We thought, given our history and state of the healthcare system, it couldn’t hurt to chat. From our first conversation, I knew we needed her in our corner. Although we had been treated by OBs and had a healthy pregnancy, I was scared it would end with heartbreak. Kayla made me feel safe and like my baby was safe. She pledged to be available for questions. We had meetings and she asked us about birth preferences, how she could help, provided insights about the hospital and gave us tips for pregnancy. She dropped off a tens machine when we went into labour, which eased pain. We had three days of early labour and were admitted for an induction. I was exhausted and spiralled, scared my baby was at harm. Kayla came immediately and talked to staff to find out what was going on and communicated everything to us. Soon after, I progressed into active labour. Kayla was our reset button. She took me for a walk and got me in a bath tub (which she advocated we get) in our labour room doing yoga stretches with the lights dim, soft music, laughing gas and my husband putting cold towels on my head. I got out and emotions had passed and I was relaxed. My body was jelly. I ended up pushing out a nine-pound baby with minimal damage. I think the tub was critical. Before, during and after pushing, Kayla made sure I had fuel. She helped my husband support me. I can hear her voice telling me I was safe and my baby was safe. Those words were the most meaningful. Kayla visited later and spoke with my husband about hormone changes I would be experiencing. A few days after our son was born, she sent me photos she took during labour. She captured what I was feeling when my son was born. I think of her now as our birthing guardian angel, who knew exactly what we needed physically and emotionally and when and filling in gaps to improve the experience. I can’t picture having a baby without her.
