"Kay's sessions pre-delivery helped us with breathing techniques, how to stay calm during birth, baby care, breastfeeding tips and so much more. She felt like an extended family member guiding us through this process of pregnancy, delivery and life postpartum. her postpartum services are extremely helpful your first weeks as new parents. We truly couldn't have had a greater experience."
Brit & Oliver
"Kay makes such a difference in our lives. My husband and I call her days with us as our postpartum doula our "Kay Days". We don't ever have to say what we need, she just knows. Her amazing meals were also a big highlight of our 4 months together and she had great advice on helping our infant to sleep."
E & M
"Through 41 hours of labor and delivery Kaybee's breathing counts, advice and constant calm were exactly what I needed to persevere through the ups and downs. Her words for me from the beginning was "plan not to have a plan" and the phrase never rang more true than in the delivery room as we talked through each of my options and when things veered from my birth plan. She coached my husband to be a crucial support in the hospital room. I will always remember and value the support she gave us."
"I can't believe what a Godsend Kay was! We were nervous first time parents and Kay's postpartum support alleviated so many of our anxieties. It was great to have someone with a wealth of knowledge to turn to, whether it was for trouble with breastfeeding or for tips on getting our child to sleep. She was able to identify that our daughter had silent reflux- something our pediatrician quickly confirmed. Kay was also so tender with our baby, who truly adores her."
"Kay is exceptionally intuitive and knowledgeable. So happy she was there with us. We could have never done it without her."
Rachel & Aaron
"As a first time mom, I was very nervous and honestly afraid. Kay was so knowledgeable about birth and helped my husband and I navigate our way in the hospital and empowered us to speak up for ourselves. She came to our home and labored with me. She was so calming and gentle and I am very grateful that she was with me."
Yared & John
"I had a very rough journey having my baby. With 3 losses prior and postpartum pre-eclampsia, my anxiety was often escalated. Kay was my postpartum doula for 3 months and her support, her genuine care and support was instrumental in helping my husband and I transition into parenthood. She made natural juices to help with my high blood pressure and sure enough I was soon able to stop the medicines prescribed. She also was helpful in helping my husband and I process my birth experience and guided us into creating healthy sleeping routines for our daughter."
