Katy was so encouraging, took the time to get to know me and what would be helpful and supportive to me and my partner before, during and after the birth of our son, and really empowered us to have the birth experience we desired in bringing our son into the world. Katy educated us on what to expect at the hospital, how to cope with labor sensations, empowered my partner to be my birth partner, and just in general cultivated a relationship with us that I will always cherish. Katy was especially supportive after our son was born and supported us with breastfeeding, postpartum ups and downs, and connecting us with the resources we needed when we struggled. She checked in with us and went way above and beyond of what we expected from our doula experience. I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through my birth and postpartum without her – Katy is one of the kindest people I’ve met and truly is amazing!
