Testimonial for Lola Katschke CD(PALS), PCD(NAPS), CLE, NCS

I can’t say enough how much I appreciate Lola’s steadfast support as our birth doula. From our 1st meeting Lola had plenty of advice and resources to offer. She answered all of our questions quickly and without judgement, including the late night “am I crazy for…?” text messages. Leading up to and during our 42 week induction, Lola encouraged me to advocate for myself, ask questions, and think through the risks and benefits of each decision. Lola’s support during labor was quick and efficient. As soon as she arrived, she jumped into action, suggesting position changes, offering massages, reminding me to eat and drink, reminding hospital staff of my birth wishes, etc. My husband especially appreciated her calm and swift presence as we were both becoming overwhelmed. Ultimately, labor was a long 35 hours and ended in an unplanned C-section. I’d like to say I was calm and collected during the C-section, but that would be a lie. In those moments, mentally processing a major surgery, a huge fear of mine, was a lot for my already exhausted mind and Lola never made me feel guilty for that. She was by my side through the entire surgery, trying to distract me with conversation, warm blankets, and baby updates. Lola also stuck around for a few hours post-op, helping with baby’s latch, packing up our L&D room, and seeing me through to a much calmer and happier place physically and mentally. In total, Lola was with us in the hospital for over 24 hours. A few days later, Lola came to our home for a postpartum visit. We spent this time catching up and chatting about our first few days as parents. Once again Lola came through big time, offering a ton of advice, referring us to a lactation consultant, and helping us secure an appointment to quickly address breastfeeding issues. Lola’s support has gone above and beyond expectations. I’d recommend her services to any friend in a heartbeat.
