As an active participant in events at Blossoms Pregnancy Boutique, Wellness Center & Doula Services, LLC, I was able to get to know the owner, Kamala McCormick, and knew that she would be the perfect doula for us. She made me comfortable and was available for any questions I or my husband might have before and after delivery.
Kamala has a way about her that makes you feel like you are her most important client. “Client” is such an informal word for it — Kamala really ends up being more like a friend or family.
The day I was to be induced, Kamala contacted me in the morning and made sure to keep in contact to know when the right time to come in would be. She arrived just in time for my labor to really get going. She was a godsend. Despite the number of birthing classes I took and the amount of research I did, in the moment it all went out of my brain. Having Kamala there to remind me of pain management techniques and positions was my saving grace. (Due to medical conditions I had to do labor and delivery naturally and pain medication free.)
Kamala’s knowledge and experience is invaluable. She was such a great support and was always in the right place at the right time. I was worried that having and extra person would be distracting, but she blends into the background and is suddenly right there at the exact moment you need her. Having her there also allowed my husband to be more connected to me instead of worrying about logistics and our surroundings. Having her supporting me and supporting him made both of us feel relaxed and confident in the whole process.
When I had brought up to my husband that I wanted a doula for the birth of our third child, he was skeptical. After the delivery, he told me that he is now a doula advocate, telling everyone that if they have a baby they need a doula and it needs to be Kamala.
This birth was an incredibly healing experience compared to my first two births and it wouldn’t have been if we didn’t have Kamala there as a wonderful support system and fountain of knowledge. I cannot recommend her service enough!
