Testimonial for Kaitlyn Martinez

Kaitlyn was my savior—I honestly don't know what I would've done without her. But before I dive into her pivotal role during the birth, let me tell you what makes her so special. From the moment I met Kaitlyn, she was incredibly sweet and open, patiently answering all my questions. Despite her limited experience, her knowledge and honesty won me over completely. I was initially hesitant, but her genuine care and understanding convinced me she was the perfect doula for me. This was my first time working with a doula, and it was particularly meaningful as it was a surrogate pregnancy. Kaitlyn was not just attentive but meticulously prepared for every step. We met multiple times to discuss everything—from pain management techniques to hospital policies. She even suggested fun activities to lighten the mood during labor, like dancing to Bad Bunny! With my pregnancy considered high-risk due to IVF, doctors insisted on an early induction, but Kaitlyn stood by me in advocating for a natural birth. She researched extensively and consulted with other midwives to support my decision. Despite my plans, I ended up going past 40 weeks, reluctantly scheduling an induction. When labor unexpectedly began, Kaitlyn's support was immediate and unwavering. She guided me through each intense contraction with patience and reassurance. Despite the pain and my wavering resolve, she reminded me of my birth plan and encouraged me through to delivery. Throughout the chaotic labor, Kaitlyn was my rock, offering comfort, advice, and capturing precious moments with the baby. She stayed with me through a complication with the placenta, ensuring I felt supported both physically and emotionally. Kaitlyn's dedication and warmth turned what could have been a daunting experience into something beautiful and meaningful. I am forever grateful to her, not just as my doula but as a cherished friend who made an unforgettable impact on our journey together.
