Testimonial for Amy Kucharski, CD(DONA), HCHD

Selecing Amy Kucharski as my doula for my first pregnancy and birth was one of the most important, best decisions I made. Amy's calm, cool, and positive personality was so comforting throughout my journey as a first time mom. I loved her sense of humor and we got along super well. Most importantly, I attribute my ability to achieve the natural, unmedicated birth I aspired for in large part to her unwavering support, expertise in natural pain management, and encouragement throughout my labor. The value of Amy's ability to work swifty, efficently, and behind the scenes when needed to provide the utmost care for me and my husband cannot be measured. She seamlessly intergrated herself during the labor process to provide such needed relief during periods of intensity, using methods I or my husband wouldn't have thought of in 100 years. She applied different tactics using hot water, counter pressure, essential oils, light touch, belly lifting, and more to help me manage the intensity of the contractions and successfully make it to the finish line. Her voice and tone was incredibly calming, reminding me to breathe and center my focus when I lost control at times during a high peak of intense pressure. And as already mentioned, she knew my sense of humor and brought in elements of that where appropriate. Not only did she support me fully but also coached and guided my husband to be the best partner he could be as a first time dad on this wild ride. 

Throughout our client/doula relationship, Amy was so fast to respond to texts, calls, or emails for questions or guidance when requested. She made it a point to get to know me personally, going for lunch a few times and checking in throughout my pregnancy. Post-birth, she stayed near for a few hours - making me my first meal, helping to load the car, and just being there for emotional support if need be.

100/10 recommend her as a doula. THANK YOU, AMY!
