Asking your husband to be your sole guide through labor is like asking him to lead the way on a climb of Mt Everest. He may be smart and trustworthy, you may love him, but in the Himalayas you’d both be a lot better off with a Sherpa!
Who I Am
Have I ever told you how much I LOVE birth??
It's true! I am passionate about all things birth and I have a great love for building healthy families.
I believe that birth is a sacred and holy space that is to be respected and trusted.
I have the exceptional honor of walking alongside birthing people while holding space as mothers, fathers and families are born.
It is never taken for granted that I am trusted with a family's most vulnerable and precious journey.
I am forever grateful for every interaction that I have with each family. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your story!
Finally, it's my turn to say how grateful I am to have such an awesome doula as Kathy!
She was very supportive not just during my birth, but also before and after...She listened carefully to all my wishes and concerns and she did everything just right! I felt supported, secured, encouraged, believed in and loved...Both me and my husband really appreciate Kathy's being in our secret space.
You never notice really how many tiny little things doulas are doing, but these things definitely make your experience better, and that was what Kathy did too! Water, towels, massage, touches...and just her being there made me feel relaxed.
Thank you, dear Kathy, from me, my husband, my midwife and our little girl.
