Testimonial for Katharine Whetzel

After interviewing several potential doula candidates, I ended up choosing Katharine as she was professional, reassuring, and was able to answer all my questions in the inital interview. It turned out that she was exactly what I needed through this labor & delivery journey. In the meetings leading up to the big day, she was able to address all concerns and provide a wealth of evidence-based suggestions and resources (which is very important, as my husband and I both work in healthcare). I was not necessarily looking for a non-medicated birth, and she supported me in my all my decisions and did not make me feel overwhelmed at any point.

When the "big day" finally came, I felt empowered with knowledge and was prepared to labor safely at home and deliver at the hospital. Katharine was very responsive and periodically checked in with me during that process. At the hospital, she helped me request resources that can help move the laboring process along that I otherwise wouldn't have known (as we know, most hospitals do not routinely offer resources unless asked), and most importantly, advocated effectively for me when we experienced a staff shift change near the actual delivery moment. She also helped me braid my hair in the delivery room during some downtime, so I felt humanized and more "put together" to tackle the process, which was a small but important gesture. Her presence was reassuring and a calming anchor during a chaotic time.

Thank you for making my labor & delivery experience memorable, empowering, and transformative!
