I was so lucky to find Katie during my third trimester. After watching "The Business of Being Born" my husband and I completely changed our birth plan. Our midwife recommended finding a doula to help with our natural birth plan, and after interviewing Katie we knew she was the one we wanted to be a part of bringing our daughter into the world. Katie helped me prepare for labor by providing educational materials, links and videos that helped me feel better prepared for labor. In addition, she helped my husband feel confident in his ability to help me through labor. On the actual day of birth, Katie was amazing and helped with our unplanned home birth (things went fast!) by helping me to mentally cope with the pain of labor, helped me husband provide the support that encouraged me and motivated me, and even helped by holding my leg! Katie made our birth experience feel joyful, peaceful, and calm. I wouldn't change anything about our birth, and I know in my heart that Katie is the one who helped make it happen. I am eternally grateful for her presence at the birth, and for all the work she did to help prepare me for labor. In addition, Katie helped make my postpartum experience better by providing support and help with breastfeeding, and did my placenta encapsulation! I highly recommend her, and know that she'll help bring positive energy and love to any birth experience!
