Ruth is so much more than a Doula. When you work with her, you are getting an internationally-recognized labor and birth trainer, a world-class lactation specialist and the developer of her own birth support program. She is just so capable of wearing so many hats. I completed hypnobirthing under her guidance, I found a friend in her and during my birth she was an ever-present statue of neutrality and strength. I wanted to quit and throw in the towel and her strength, presence and well-timed affirmations got me through to the end where I pushed my baby out, unmedicated, in the comfort of my own home. My family will be forever grateful and we highly recommend you consider Ruth Kraft as your birth doula.
