Testimonial for Katharine Whetzel

We worked with Katharine as our doula for our first birth, and I don't think words can describe just how invaluable and supportive she was. I hoped to experience an unmedicated birth and without Katharine's support I don't think that I could have done it, especially considering that labour went for 15 hours, all through the night. Despite surely being exhausted, Katharine was fully dedicated the entire time, from beginning to end, always full of ideas for shifting positions and easing my discomfort, supporting my partner throughout, and acting as an essential protector of our space. A hospital setting isn't always ideal, and we were unlucky to be under the care of a nurse who didn't entirely understand or support our desire for less intervention, and Katharine was able to calmly and diplomatically engage with her in multiple instances that meant neither myself or my partner had to experience that kind of stress in an already highly emotional time. From the very beginning, with every prenatal appointment, Katharine was thorough, kind, warm, and genuine. She's extremely knowledgable and all of her resources have been so helpful for us. It was such a relief to see her again postpartum as well, and I know she's helped set us up to be the most successful new parents that we can be. I loved welcoming her into our new little family.
