We chose Kattie because of her training, work and related personal experience, and different pricing options. My main goal was to have a birth that was as intervention free as possible, and Kattie helped me get through a crazy long labor without getting an epidural. She was always finding a way to get my mind off of the intensity of labor whenever I seemed to start getting overwhelmed, by suggesting a walk, different positions, offering me something to drink or eat, etc. Having Kattie around helped my husband get on track with helping me get through the contractions at home for as long as possible to avoid possible unnecessary interventions at the hospital. They were a great team together.
