Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Hey All! My name is Kate! I have been drawn to birth for years and so honored to have a place to come alongside you and support you in your journey! I am both a doula and birth photographer and have been in many births over the past years! I have done extensive birth training over the years as well as many certifications for birth photography!
What led you to become a Doula?: After the birth of my first son (I have 3!) I knew there was a place in birth for me!! It took me a few years to figure out what it was, but after attending a birth of a friend, I knew Birth Photography and Doula work was my calling! Each birth is so special and challenging all in its own unique way, and being able to partner with a family as they welcome a new child is something I will never take for granted!
What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:
I am so blessed to have the most wonderful clients in the world! My clients and I truly become friends, I don’t want to just be a stranger in the room, I want you to know, love, and trust who I am and how I can help you document and support you in your birth! My clients say over and over how my support is what changed their birth! I am honored!
What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: I love local parenting groups you can join, even the great groups on Facebook are such a great way to connect!
What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I am proud of you! You are doing a great job!! Being a new parent is no easy task, and as a parent, I know how much a few kind words mean!
What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: Support and love!! You already know internally what is best for your baby, and my goal is to come alongside you and support you, give you options, and find the right path!
