"Kaitlin was my doula for my first son's birth January 20th 2017. He was 2 weeks early and born at home. She was there every step of the way. I was truly inspired by her birth story and I couldn't wait for her to be a part of mine. My labor was 13 hours from water breaking to baby being earthside. I labored in my back and she helped me with compression through my contractions. Also, my baby was sunny-side up so she told me ways in which to flip him which included squats, lunges, and laying on my side through contractions. My birth wasn't the easiest; I dealt with my baby being stuck and hard labor including pushing for 3.5 hours. Thankfully she was there holding my leg while I pushed. She was a huge support to me during my labor and I don't think I could have done it without her!!! #highlyrecommend #awesomedoula"
I met Kaitlin when my husband and I showed up for our first Birth Boot Camp class. I immediately felt a connection to her and loved the class! I would go to my OB appointments and my doctor would be so impressed with my knowledge. She even asked me where I got the info for some other patients. My husband and I didn’t immediately know if we wanted a doula though. About halfway through our class my husband decided he would really like to have Kaitlin there to guide him in how to help me. (He is amazing!) So we discussed it with Kaitlin and she of course said yes! We were delighted and looking back now I know I would have a very different birth story without her. Kaitlin was with me every step of the way and was always a half a step ahead to ensure my birth experience was what I wanted. Her door was always open for texting, emailing, calling, etc. and she responded quickly and with excellent advice/information. She works tirelessly for her clients. In my 19 hour labor she ensured I never felt alone and I pulled my strength from her. She held my hand, cared for me cleaned my pee, pulled my hair back, loved me, got me essential oils, let me know all the options, stood up for me, laughed with me, checked on me, gave my husband breaks, encouraged me, and most importantly she empowered me. I am a stronger, more confident mother for knowing Kaitlin.

"To say I loved having Kaitlin as a doula is an understatement! She was so supportive and exactly what I needed in my fifth labor and delivery experience. She respected the decisions I made and helped me achieve a flawless labor and delivery. I cannot sing her praises enough and highly recommend a her as doula and now a forever friend! Thank you Kaitlin, You made my labor & delivery the peaceful, quiet, natural experience I needed!"
"Kaitlin is an amazing doula and I am so thankful to have had her support during pregnancy and birth. She empowered me to trust my decisions about pregnancy and birth, which was huge for me to push aside the self-doubt. When it was time for the birth, she met me and my husband at the hospital and the moment she walked in the room, I felt calm in a hectic situation. She and my hospital nurse worked really well together, allowing my nurse to get down to the nitty gritty while Kaitlin comforted me, laughed with me between contractions, and coached me through the pain. She was my advocate and is a huge part of my birth story."

"I took Kaitlin's Birth Boot Camp class to gain more knowledge regarding all the different options available to me to birth my baby girl. I learned SO much and feel empowered and confident to make choices, not just go along with the conventions of my Dr, nurses or hospital. Knowledge is so powerful and has done so much to help me be less fearful about childbirth. Thank you Kaitlin for giving us your time, energy and knowledge and facilitating a great supportive environment to learn and ask ALL the questions. The class was interactive, informative, full of great resources and overall a pretty good time. I highly recommend it for any couple preparing for childbirth!"
"I took Kaitlin's Birth Boot Camp class and I highly recommend it. The material is useful, practical, and helpful throughout pregnancy, not just for labor and delivery. But more than that, Kaitlin made each class fun and interesting, sharing her own personal experiences, and encouraging us to share ours as pregnancy progressed. Totally worth the time and money we invested!"
"I took Birth Boot Camp with Kaitlin and let me say it was educational, empowering, entertaining, and all around wonderful!! I was at the time a hopeful (Now Successful!!!) VBAC momma and found the class to be full of pieces of information that helped me during my labor and birth to remember I am in control of my birth experience. I could ask questions and listen to the options/rationale and not feel rushed or over powered. She was one player on the incredible team I built around me to battle through stigmas and fears that come from the outside and within about VBAC and my gestational diabetes diagnosis. I highly recommend the course even for seasoned moms! It was worth all the time we sowed into the course!"
