“Kristin's knowledge & support gave my husband & me extra confidence to trust the process of birth. With her help, we had the labor and delivery we had always hoped for. Having a doula ensured that my husband could give me the support I needed, as he was getting the support he needed. Kristin also provided postpartum support that was much-needed and appreciated as we were adjusting to our family of three.”
“When my husband and I met Kristin, I had no idea what a doula was and I didn't want one, I had a doctor so I was good. However, throughout our Bradley Method classes with Kristin, we got to know and love her. She was always very knowledgeable, friendly and confident about how she taught and what she was teaching. We decided to switch from a doctor to a midwife and chose to ask Kristin to be our doula because I wasn't sure we could do it alone. Once my labor started, Kristin was right there until the end. She was very calm, reassuring, prepared and I felt as if I were with my sister. I felt safe and loved. Kristin was persistent with her methods and techniques to help me relax and she was there for my husband when he needed positive encouragement that he was doing a great job!”
