During the first half of my pregnancy, both my husband and I were unsure as to if we needed a doula during our birth. But as we got closer to our due date, I started to realize how important that support would be for both of us. During the labor and birth process, Kyndal did a phenomenal job in holding the space for my husband and me. She was there physically and emotionally when we needed her, yet knew when and how to give us space at the moments when it was most important. For me, she was like a personal attendant that always seemed to know when I needed a drink of water, some food, the right comfort measure, or the perfect words of encouragement. And at the times when I was being asked to do something physically that seemed beyond my ability, she had a gentle yet commanding way of guiding me through that was incredibly helpful. Her knowledge and experience is extensive and is apparent through every element of her work. But most importantly, my husband and I were able to feel completely connected at every moment and we we are incredibly greatful to Kyndal for supporting the space to do this.
