"My wife and I hired Kristy as a doula at the birth of our second child. The moment we met her at our first pre-natal interview, we saw that Kristy was kind, caring, and professional. She was very creative in her ideas for pain management during labor and was always available to answer questions as things came up.
When it came time for the birth, the labor progressed so rapidly that we never made it out of the house and Kristy ended up having to deliver the baby (never having done so before)! She handled what could've been a very scary, nerve-wracking situation with a great deal of poise and confidence. We are so happy we hired Kristy for the birth; we'll remember her heroism for the rest of our lives!"
