I have met Kory only few weeks before my due date, since we moved across the country just weeks before our precious daughter arrived. Despite the circumstances and our short relationship, Kory was an invaluable part of my labor and we could not have don’t it without her! When you move across the country and don’t even have a relationship with your doctor delivering a baby in a hospital can be very intimidating, Kory’s presence at the hospital during my labor and birth made it all easy.
Kory’s professionalism is top notch! She worked with the doctors and nurses advocating for me! She really helped me achieved a natural birth that wewere hoping for, and I truly don’t think I would been able to do so without her!Some of the hospital staff did not really seem to welcome the idea of natural birth, yet of the doula presence. However, Kory displayed the highest level of professionalism by working with everyone.
Emotionally – she assured I was mentally comfortable the entire time. She played my favorite music, she massaged, she calmed me down by using her soft and comforting voice!
Physically- she assured my heat pack was constantly warm, she massaged my feet, she provided counter pressure during contractions ( she is a petite lady, but believe me she is strong!!!), she even brought Chapstick, hair band, and her doula bag was full of awesome tools to alleviate the intensity of the experience! She even allowed me to squeeze her arm as hard as I needed during contractions!!!! During actual birth- she was amazing- she coached me thru breathing and helped me focus! The whole thing seems like a dream now, and Kory was there with is the entire time!
I cannot say enough wonderfult things about Kory and the support she provided for me, for my husband, and our son. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering using doula services! She is awesome beyond measures and she will assure that you will have the birth you have envisioned!
