Kallyn is a magical combination of wicked smarts, humor, and the most comforting presence I've ever encountered. If people have callings, caring for women and babies is hers. Throughout my pregnancy, during birth, and afterwards, Kallyn went out of her way to care for our family. I've never met someone as genuinely and holistically dedicated to my health. Her belief in my body was fierce, and a big reason I was confident enough to attempt the birth I'd imagined (and achieve it!) As a caretaker, I often find it hard to let people take care of me. Not so with Kallyn. She is disarming in the very best way, creating space for you to show up completely as your full, messy, and authentic self. Since our son arrived, she's fast become a trusted friend with whom I can share the hard stuff, but also dissolve beside in a flood of giggles. We love her dearly. - Emily
Kallyn is the total package when it comes to doulas, and we can't recommend her highly enough! If you want a doula on your team with years of experience, who brings a calm and comforting energy, with a vast knowledge of natural childbirth techniques and information, Kallyn is the doula for you! She also included beautiful maternity photos and photographs of our daughter's birth day, which was a sweet "extra" that is hard to find. If you're considering natural childbirth, you won't need any pain meds with her massage skills, words of encouragement, and soothing energy! - Tatiana
