It is one of the best gifts when a mom or couple shares with me how having a doula or birth photographer helped their birth experience. Josh and Terrica were such a lovely couple to work with, and they have one of THE most gorgeous four-month-old baby girls ever (has it really been 4 months?!). I was totally blessed to be their doula. Thank you for sharing your sweet thoughts with me, Terrica and Josh!
“A friend of ours said it best when they mentioned that hiring a doula for their childbirth experience was ‘worth every penny!’ I couldn’t agree more, and Kali is exceptional. She was so easy to work with, listened intently to what our needs/wants were, and went far above the call of duty a number of times. She was flexible, encouraging and affirming, and so attentive, literally from the day we hired her all the way thru postpartum. My husband commented that even if I hadn’t needed her, he certainly did! Her calming presence brought so much peace of mind and opportunity to rest and refuel that he couldn’t have imagined doing it without her. We also used her for placenta encapsulation, and that too I’d do a thousand times over! I was skeptical if it was really worth it, but let me say, I will NEVER face postpartum again without it. The difference was profound and immediate, and as expected, Kali exceeded our expectations. Timely, informative, professional, I simply can’t say enough about her.” – Joshua and Terrica Smith
