Testimonial for Katharine Whetzel

Katharine supported us leading up to and during our birth to help us feel prepared while also being present with the process as it unfolded. She is both a gentle and strong presence, and we felt like she was the perfect fit for us from our first meeting to our last. I cannot imagine what labor and delivery would have been like without her! She tactfully helped guide us and the hospital staff toward our preferred outcomes where possible, and there were crucial moments where she helped us get clarity and space before making decisions. I didn’t realize how much I needed an advocate in the room before hand. I originally hoped a doula would help me manage pain which Katharine definitely did. She also took the mental and emotional load of communicating productively off my shoulders, so I could focus on myself and baby. She was extremely well informed in the medical aspects and hospital practices and helped us decipher what the nurses and doctor might be thinking and what our options were. A lot of my fear leading up to the birth was alleviated through our conversations, resources she provided, and knowing she would be there with us. Despite the long and hard labor I ended up having, I’m so glad we had Katharine there. She was physically and emotionally supportive, both serious and fun as the moment required, and helped us through that transition to becoming parents in every way.
