Kaia's postpartum care was even more crucially important to my recovery than her labor care. She was an absolute life-saver. From her soul satisfying bone broth to her counseling on breast milk and even bringing donor milk for me when I was having issues producing - I could turn to her for any questions or concern postpartum and she was immediately there with help or advice or referrals. ~Mama Naila, 2014
Kaia was with me for every step of my 36-hour labor – even obtaining a power of attorney for her home closing so that she could stay with my husband and me. She was unrelenting in her emotional and physical support, coaching and encouraging me with warmth, empathy and assertiveness (when I needed it)! I wanted to have a natural childbirth, and her calm presence and knowledge put me at ease and empowered me to make mindful decisions throughout the delivery. ~Mama Alexis, 2016
Kaia has been a great friend for about 5 years. I had not asked her to be my doula with my first child, a decision I have regretted ever since. When I became pregnant again, I was very glad that she was able to be with me.
Kaia is a wonderful, warm, knowledgeable and caring person. During every step of my pregnancy, the delivery, and the postpartum phase, I could trust her. Based on her experience as a doula and her knowledge as a training midwife, she answered all my questions. During our prenatal discussions she was knowledgeable but kept an open mind if our positions differed.
Having her with us during labor at home and at the hospital was very supportive for me and my husband. She was able to calm me down, and she provided emotional support to my husband by giving us clear instructions on what to do during labor. My 2nd labor was much faster than my 1st one: without Kaia, I probably would have given birth in a cab. It was her decision to drive to a hospital closer to our home. For that my husband and I are utterly thankful. ~Mama Susi, 2017
My initial impression of Kaia was that she expresses confidence in what she does but doesn't try to sell herself excessively. I think the biggest impact that she had on me was the emotional component which empowered me physically to be able to give birth without interventions. I have been fearful of labor almost all my life and I NEVER imagined that I would be able to go through it without some sort of pain medications. I felt empowered and I felt that I could embrace the strength that is given for a woman to be able to deal with something that is difficult and yet rewarding at the same time. ~Mama Peony, 2016
Kaia helped us get back on our feet after our 2 month old had a health scare and a week long hospital stay. She gave us back the confidence to trust our instincts and gave us great tips on how to get back in tune with our baby. During our time with her our son developed a soy and dairy allergy and she was instrumental in helping us figure out my new diet so I could still breastfeed. She also helped my husband and I communicate better with each other about our needs as parents and partners. She gave us ideas on how to be more organized so little annoyances with each other didn't build up! She felt like a friend right away and we miss seeing her weekly! ~Papa Josh & Mama Suzanne, 2017
