Testimonial for Amanda Kling

My husband and I met Amanda when I was 17 weeks pregnant at a local Panera and it was a very comfortable, casual meeting. She answered all of my questions without hesitation and calmed my anxieties and fears I had about my own body and labor/birth. My husband and I walked away feeling positive and ready to hire her as our doula. Unfortunately, my husband lost his job unexpectedly which put a pause on paying for her services. I reached out to let her know that I was interested in hiring her but would need to figure out our finances before making the commitment. Amanda was SO gracious and offered a payment plan to help pay for her services. It wasn't something she typically did, but she wanted to make sure I had the support I needed. Fast forward to our prenatal appt when I was 33 weeks, she came to my house to create and discuss my birth plan. She answered ALL of my questions and didn't hesitate to take the time to explain the pros/cons of doing certain things. She explained more about the labor/birth process than my OB's did! I was 39 weeks and 5 days when I went into labor. It was in the middle of the night, I called her and she answered right away and talked me through the contractions and offered suggestions to help. Amanda stayed with me from 10am on 6/7 to 3pm on 6/8. I gave birth at 12:11pm on 6/8. The craziest part is she had gallbladder surgery a few weeks before my due date. She was still healing but she was right there with me through every contraction, every tear, every word I told her that I couldn't do this and kept telling me that yes, I can. I finally got an epidural at 9cm, she didn't sway me one way or another and supported me. There's not enough space in this review to write all the support she gave to me, my husband and my mom. She even took photos and videos of the moment my daughter was born! I look back at those photos/videos and I'm SO grateful for her! I 1000% recommend her to anyone who wants a doula for their labor and birth!
