Testimonial for Katie Pumphrey

I had a normal pregnancy with my first son. But, my boy was STILL head up at the finish line! My external version was unsuccessful, acupuncture, moxibustion, spinning babies, miles circuit.. NOTHING was flipping this baby. Traumatized with the idea of a surgical birth I knew I needed Katie by my side! My husband questioned the need as I wasn’t “laboring” but knew I needed Katie’s energy with me in the OR. Katie was aware of my long list of medical requests we were so scared to lose while I was under the influence of pain medications. My birthing plan was very detailed and I got exactly what I wanted out of that birth with Katie’s help!

While I was highly medicated I heard katie through the fog, truly advocating for me. My wishes were carried out, my baby was cared for just as I wanted, and nothing slipped between the cracks. Katie Always had a hand on me to make sure I didn’t feel alone. She kept me involved and my nurses respected her and her authority in the room. The cherry on top, katie took to most incredible, dreamy photos of my son taking his first breaths, and our first connections together as a family. I walked out of such a scary and unwanted experience with so much peace.

My second son was also cesarean. The second time around was much more taxing on me emotionally and I would have been a wreck without her experience with deescalating anxiety! She was my calm and steady and for the second time, my advocate at the hospital! Saint Elizabeth is a pro doula hospital and she was very respected and appreciated by the staff there. Katie encapsulated both my placentas and helped us heal with her herbal tinctures which we both love!

Doulas belong in cesareans too! Don’t doubt Katie’s ability to completely transform your C-section birth! Five stars!
