Kathy was nothing but supportive, encouraging, and empowering throughout my entire pregnancy and birth experience. When it became obvious that we needed to veer from our birth plan, she held my hand and reassured me I was making the right choice. I know my birth experience would not have been so positive without Kathy playing such a major role.

My husband, son, and I are extremely grateful for Beyond the Bump, and Kathy’s sweet, caring spirit.

She is worth her weight in gold and choosing to have her there was probably the single best decision I made this entire pregnancy

There are no words good enough to describe how wonderful Kathy is and the incredible service that she provides. She was just as helpful and incredible in the OR as she was in my home and the labor room. She is one of a kind and truly supports all types of births. I am forever grateful that she was apart of my journey.

Ashley R.

Your guidance and support helped me feel confident the whole way through. Your calm demeanor and encouraging presence set the tone for my labor. You were the whisper in my ear reassuring me that everything was alright and that I was in control of how my baby was born. It was everything I hoped it to be, thank you so much!

Tracy G.

Kathy was there every step of the way to help us make well-informed decisions based on our wants and needs. She supported every decision we made and helped me through every contraction. She had amazing rapport with the hospital staff and they even commented on how amazing she was. My husband and I are so thankful for her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.

Jackie S.

She was incredibly patient and has so much knowledge about the birth process as well as resources for just about anything we needed or asked! When I had to be induced 4 weeks early and ultimately had a c-section she completely rolled with the process and gave us encouragement as we made decisions along the way. She talked us through what to expect during the c-section and afterwards, and helped so much even by setting up our belongings in the postpartum room so we could go see our daughter in the NICU for the first time.

I would 100% recommend having Kathy as a doula. It’s immediately apparent how much she puts her heart into what she does, and having her support was invaluable.

Kathy is full of compassion! After my unexpected, emergency c-section at 26 weeks pregnant, she stayed by my side and listened to the doctor’s advise for my pumping and recovery. It was two days until I could see my son because of my health. She has a calming sense about her and helped me navigate those first couple days while my husband and family went back and forth between my baby and I. As the birth I dreamed about was no longer my reality, Kathy kept me focused on the positives!

Christi Z.

Because of Kathy, I had an amazing 100% natural birth. She had zero hesitation when it came to the next step of my labor. She knew exactly what to do, what to say, what not to say, what worked and what didn’t. Kathy is one amazing woman. I can honestly say that I would not have made it without her, nor would I have wanted to.

Kathy was so easy and accommodating. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I just came home to my wonderful supply of placenta pills all ready for me.

I did not do placenta encapsulation with my first birth. I’m so glad I made it a priority this time. I’ve felt so great following this birth! A few times, I did forget to take my pills on time. It never took long for my hormones and feelings to go out of whack when I did. I’d realize my error, take one of my placenta pills, and quickly I’d be back on track. I have no doubts about the benefits of placenta encapsulation, and I’ll never skip it for any future births. Thank you, Kathy!

Gina C.

I highly recommend Kathy and Beyond the Bump to any family thinking about placenta encapsulation, or just if you are seeking more information about the benefits, the process or current research. Considering I was skeptical of the process and the benefits, Kathy made me feel confident in my decision to try placenta encapsulation without feeling pressured. I started the capsules 5 days ago and have not experienced baby blues or low milk supply. I am excited to see the long term benefits of placenta encapsulation.

Kaylee B.

She gave me detailed instruction on how I was to care for it from the hospital to home until it was time to process it. She came over after my son was born and the process was quick, sanitary, and thorough. Everything she does is completely with so much care and attention to detail.

Beyond the Bump Products

Completely in love with my Beyond the Bump products from Scentsable Health! Supply Support and Nursing Balm are life savers!

Bethany H.

I had great success with Supply Support! Within 3 days I had my supply back if not better! So nice not to stress about milk. I was a little nervous to buy it because I am not crazy about the gerenium smell but it’s blended very well and you only need a little bit!

Erin M.

I recently ordered and started using Supply Support to see if it would increase my milk supply. Since using Supply Support over the last week, I am able to nearly double my pumping output. I really like the product — especially how natural it is and how little I have to use of it — and highly recommend it to those wanting or needing to increase their milk supply.

Cami R.

I received these product as a gift after I had my baby. I couldn’t believe how much it helped me. I healed so much faster. I loved each product & have found other uses for them. I would recommend them to anyone.

Samantha R.

I have used the Nursing Balm for both me and my babe’s behind, especially during those first few weeks where stools were so frequent it left the diaper area tender.

The Postpartum Salve was great for relieving my irritated stretch marks and my favorite product hands down is the lip balm! I have used the Sweet almond mint, Iced citrus and lavenade.
