Kind Words

  • “I highly recommend Kathy. My husband was unable to attend the birth of my beautiful, baby girl, and Kathy went above and beyond to make me feel supported before, during, and after her birth. She was with me for a birth that lasted almost two days. When things didn’t go according to plan, she supported my decisions without judgement. In the end, I had a VBAC, and Kathy helped make that possible.”  TH
  • “We were extremely pleased with the choice of Kathy Jordan for our doula.  She is a natural in this field and her help reflected that.  We had a great birth with her support.  We couldn’t have been more pleased with her.  I recommend anyone reading this to contact her if you want her support.”  JR
  • “It is so comforting to know that I can ask you questions, complain or talk ailments and know you will listen and provide calm advice. The books you provided are great and your encouragement has given me courage IMG_1063that  I can handle this pregnancy. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I feel so confident going into the birth with you to support me and how great that I will see you after they are born to help me figure out how to be a mom to twins too.” MD (who rocked her vaginal twin birth!)

 

  • “Kathy was such a blessing! I am so grateful a friend referred her to us.  Upon meeting her I was immediately impressed with her character and experience. My husband was reluctant to have a doula since I had already had a healthy, natural labor before, but after meeting her he knew she was a great fit for us.  She was a wealth of knowledge prior to my labor and a huge help during and after it.  Kathy was supportive and encouraging as she guided me through the pain.  My labor was quite hectic and I don’t know what we would have done without her.  After the birth, it was great to have her help so my husband and I could just be together with the baby.  At my postpartum appointment I really appreciated the timeline to account for the day’s events.  I highly recommend Kathy for your birthing experience!” JH

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! I will keep in touch…especially when baby#3 comes down the road maybe.” LD
  • “Kathy was a godsend for us. We were touched and thankful for her level of sincerity and dedication even after we transferred from the birthing center to the hospital. She stayed with us and helped all the way through our delivery. Even though you could tell she was exhausted, she stayed and helped us. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience with a doula like Kathy and she has our highest recommendation.” HZ
  • “Kathy is a wonderful, empathetic, and sincere doula. She has a welcoming, friendly and trustworthy presence. Despite being a volunteer doula she was able to relate to the clients quickly and effectively.” M, midwife for HZ

We can’t say enough about Kathy she is kind, loving, and extremely imageknowledgeable as a Doula. If you are looking for a doula who is reliable and can support you in your choices, Kathy is the doula of our choice. Thank you for creating our birth time line and for creating an unforgettable experience to welcome in our beautiful son.” SB & MB
  • We decided on a home birth, and then sought to find a doula who matched our personalities and what we were looking for. We interviewed 4 different doulas, and at the end of our interview with Kathy, my husband said “she’s the one!” and I agreed. With her own birth experience, several children and grandchildren, Kathy was so sweet and gentle, which is what I needed. My husband wanted someone experienced and who had personal natural birth experience.imageKathy helped us develop a birth plan and also a hospital plan in the case of a transfer. She also helped us prepare for labor by showing different positions, stretches, and exercises we could do.I went into  labor at 42+1 weeks pregnant, and Kathy was there to help. We called her in the afternoon, after I had early contractions, and she stayed throughout my whole labor and birth, which was over 24 hours. Kathy helped support me, but most importantly, my husband, who was glad to have a little break. Kathy also took pictures of my son’s birth using my phone, which, before I wasnt wanting, but looking back, I am so glad to have them!!Kathy also stayed after the birth and after the midwives had left to  wash soiled towels, bedsheets, and help with nursing. At the follow up, Kathy came over and went over everything, gave me a birth timeline, which I’m extremely glad I have, because I don’t remember in which order my birth happened.Overall, Kathy was an invaluable resource and support person for both myself and my husband during my long labor. She was amazing and I hope to have her at my subsequent (future) births!  CB
  • “It was thCassiee best decision to hire Kathy as our doula. Both my husband and my family are out of town, so during much of my labor it was just us and Kathy. It was so nice to have such a knowledgeable doula with us.  Kathy has a very calming and peaceful demeanor. She offered her advice and expertise throughout my labor. Although I planned at natural drug free birth at Best Start Birth Center, we ended up at Sharp Mary Birch. Kathy was with us every step of the way. I really appreciated her support and presence, she helped us make the most of our birth and assisted us in sticking to our birth plan as much as possible. Kathy was with us from laboring at home until my baby’s birth the next afternoon at the hospital.  She doesnt charge enough for all the time and support she provided to me and my family. I would love to work with her again.” CF
