Testimonial for Kim O'Rourke

This was our third doula experience, but first time with Kim. Our previous doulas had moved states and changed careers and we needed to find someone new again. Close family friends recommended Kim and I can't thank them enough. Even though we were seasoned parents, Kim's presence before and at the birth was invaluable. One of my biggest concerns was getting to the birthing center on time - not too early and not too late. Kim assured me she had experience with our drive distance and birth number to get me to where I needed to be at the right time. She explained how she would gauge my progress and how she is able to assess timing. Of course birth throws you curve balls and you can't ever be sure about timing, but Kim's experience, confidence, and clamness eased my fears. One such curve ball was having to go to the hospital instead of the birthing center. Kim helped me stay positive and focused despite the crushing change of plans. Kim was intuitive to my pain during labor and was able to guide me through contractions just the right way. I started to get pretty vulnerable the closer I got to giving birth, constantly asking everyone if I was almost done - Kim gave me confidence in myself and reassured me of my own abilities that I had forgotton in the moment. She also pretty much held my baby's almost crowning head as the nurses insisted I get on the bed! I am so grateful to Kim for helping us achieve the unmedicated birth I was hoping for and for guiding us through things that didn't go the way we planned. Thank you, Kim!
