"Kaylin. Best decision ever. I didn't have a doula with my first birth & had Kaylin with my second. I know words can not do true justice to how much of a difference it made. I was prepared for whatever would come. Whether it was the experience I'd dreamed of or not, that wouldn't matter, because Kaylin made sure I was at peace with myself and the experience before it even happened. She was very professional and completely open minded. She supported whatever I wanted and supplied me with education to make decisions when I felt lost or confused. I encourage anyone who is looking for a doula whom truly loves the birthing experience, from pre- to post- natal, to consider Kaylin. She was essential to the confidence I had in myself throughout. She was also great with my husband, who has a completely different personality from me, so she's just all around great. Thank you soooo much Kaylin!"
Guidance for Your Birthing Time
This $800 investment includes three types of support:
Emotional: With big changes come big emotions. I know how bumpy the pregnancy journey can be when it seems like everything is all happening at once. I am naturally a very calming presence and my trainings have only further developed my empathetic abilities.
Physical: You know, hip squeezes, counter pressure, massage, hydrotherapy, and all the other amazing things doulas do. I come with a whole bag of tricks to help you cope with every single wave.
Educational: Helping you research and determine your preferences is one of my favorite parts of this work. I believe that knowledge is power and it is so important to me that my clients are well informed about their options for birthing and newborn care. I also offer personalized breastfeeding classes, in your home.
Kaylin was awesome! From the moment I met her I knew she was the right person to assist me with the birth of my son. She has a very calm and nurturing presence. She is very knowledgeable of different birthing positions and relaxation techniques and was very helpful in helping me to remember to breathe and stay focused during labor. She was well prepared at our prenatal visits and at the hospital. We had two prenatal visits and I greatly appreciate that she took the time to discern what my goals and fears were and to make a plan ahead of time of how to cope if things didn't go as planned. She is a good listener and I never felt rushed through our appointments. Kaylin never pushed me one way or another about my birth plan and was extremely supportive of my choices.
I had a successful unmedicated, natural childbirth at Lexington Medical Center and I'm not sure I could have done it without her! My husband says he also felt much more calm with her being there and it better equipped him to be my support person. I would definitely recommend her services and if we decide to have more children I will definitely be calling her again!
