My husband and I selected McKinzey as our doula for our son’s birth in October 2019. She was extremely flexible which was awesome because I was a major slacker and didn’t book her until roughly 2-3 weeks before our due date.
She was prompt for our consultation and showed us some comfort techniques to use during early labor at home that were very useful. McKinzey was very responsive to my texts leading up to labor and arrived at the hospital within the quoted amount of time. Her presence was very comforting and we enjoyed having her attend the birth of our son. She used encouraging words and tone through labor and ensured certain requests were honored (i.e. delayed cord clamping).
Overall, McKinzey was lovely to work with and was very personable making our birth experience perfect. Thank you so much McKinzey!
McKinzey was such a source of support for us during the recent birth of our son. She was very calm and encouraging throughout the whole labor and birth. Our birth experience was just what we wanted and McKinzey’s presence was definitely helpful and caring. Like our Midwife said, Doulas are magic! We highly recommend McKinzey.
McKinzey was hands down the best doula we could have dreamed of. She was full of information and support before-hand and was instrumental in the labor process going as smoothly as possible. Her style is super calming and we would recommend her to any new couple looking for someone highly capable with a very chill personality. She has tons of tools she shares – she was always there when we reached out and she was immediately available during the labor process.
McKinzey was a wonderful and calming presence during the birth of our son. This was my first pregnancy/delivery and having her as a coach and partner for both myself and my husband provided a huge amount of reassurance for us both. She was a calming and grounding force before, during, and after our delivery. Having the opportunity to meet several times prior to delivery as well as after made our experience with McKinzey so organic and natural. I would recommend her as a birth and postpartum doula. She is wonderful, encouraging, and such an asset to anyone looking for a little extra help with birth or after.
