Testimonial for Kim O'Rourke

I reached out to Kim for doula services with my second child, following a traumatic birth experience with my first daughter. From the first minute I spoke to Kim, I knew she was the calming and supportive presence I wanted along for my pregnancy and delivery journey the second time around. Kim was easily accessible throughout my pregnancy and was a reassuring support system for me as several minor issues came up throughout my pregnancy (e.g., slow fetal growth, low fluids, breech baby). Kim is extremely knowledgable, having assisted with over 500 births, and was able to confidently guide me through these stressful blips in my pregnancy. She connected me with a qualified Chiropractor to help flip my baby from the breech position and also came to my home to help teach me exercises I could do to help my baby flip. Kim is a compassionate doula, who prioritized my needs and helped me identify potential triggers from my first negative birth experience to help communicate those triggers with my new medical team during my second birth experience. During labor, Kim joined my husband and myself at the hospital during my induction and coached us through the whole experience. I was able to labor without an epidural for 5 hours with Kim's support and guidance through breathing and changing positions to help my baby descend. Kim exhibited the perfect balance of coaching while also allowing my husband to be my primary support system throughout labor. After my daughter was born, Kim was an integral part of a positive breastfeeding experience for me, which I did not have with my first child. She helped me figure out the basics in that first hour post-partum and also met with me several times in my home to make sure we had a smooth transition. I am forever grateful for Kim's support during this second "redemption" delivery and cannot recommend her enough.
