“Confident, strong and connected.”
Kelli provided insight and wisdom, support and love, and at times, simply an ear for dad, all the while providing a space for our family to begin developing into the best natural and intuitive partnership we could be, moment to moment. Confident, strong and connected. There was crying, laughter, hugs and all the feels. Oh yeah, did I mention she is super smart, an educator on all things mom/baby and a strong advocate who will empower you to make wise and well informed decisions? She's that too. This is fresh. We are week old parents, and we couldn't be more grateful for her calm presence throughout our tumultuous journey.
“Acknowledging my needs.”
Kelli was my doula for my second childbirth and she was awesome. She helped me work through a long labor, 22 hours, and was a great help to stabilize my feelings, both physical and emotional, and as a coach for my husband as well. Between acknowledging my needs but also giving me the tools to do the best I could, having Kelli there was a must. I always recommend a doula to my pregnant friends, and I will continue to recommend Tree of Life!
“Kept me focused on my baby.”
Kelli is an amazing person and wonderful doula. She enabled me to experience the birth I was hoping for. Her calmness grounded me and kept me focused on my baby rather than the intensity of labor itself. I couldn't have done it without her! I am so appreciative and grateful to Kelli for being a part of bringing my son into this world.
“Able to labor more effectively.”
The doula I was going to work with had a family emergency and she arranged Kelli to be my backup while she was out of town. I met Kelli on a Thursday afternoon and that night went into labor with kiddo #2. She was absolutely amazing. She kept a calm atmosphere during some very intense contractions, helped me focus & release tension to be able to labor more effectively, and took some pressure off of my husband (who was the sole support during the birth of kiddo #1). I wasn't the only one who recognized how helpful Kelli was- my doctor, nurses, and the anesthesiologist also commented on what a great doula she was. I am so happy with how the labor turned out and thankful Kelli could be a part of it!
“Calmed my new mommy worries.”
While I did not have Kelli as my doula, she was an amazing support for me during my journey with breast feeding and adjusting to motherhood. Her knowledge is deep and her amazingly warm, tender, and loving heart calmed my new mommy worries.
Kelli has such a calm steady presence. She is abundantly wise and always willing to give support without telling an individual what they "should do", which I believe is key in loving unconditionally as a doula. She fully trusts birth, believes in women and loves her work. What an amazing resource she is to Gallatin Valley families!
