I recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy and labored with Doula Kathleen Wilson. She was awesome! From the first day we met I knew we would have a great birth experience. Kathleen was incredibly thorough during our pre-labor meetings. She ensured all my questions were answered and we discussed everything that could possibly happen so I could be prepared and think about any unexpected decisions ahead of time. I was a few days past my due date and pretty anxious for the baby to come. Kathleen was great through this: very reassuring and full of great advice and resources.
As far as the birth itself, it was incredible! It was my second birth and I was determined to labor at home for as long as possible. She was a rock, encouraging and comforting me throughout my labor. The labor went pretty fast and when my water broke we rushed to the hospital and I mean RUSHED! Kathleen talked me out of pushing in the car a few times and after running me down the hospital halls in a wheel chair and into a Labor and Deliver room, we had a baby in 3 minutes. It was extremely exciting and an incredibly beautiful and empowering experience. I would highly recommend Kathleen for a first time mom as well as an experienced mother….she is a fabulous person and Doula!
