PREGNANT OR PLANNING YOUR BIRTH? I can help listen as you process pregnancy concerns – birth preparation and choosing a birth setting – relationships with your care provider and preparing for an ideal postpartum.

DO YOU LONG TO REWRITE YOUR BIRTH STORY? I also hold a special place in my heart for women who have experienced complicated or traumatic births (physical, emotional, psychological trauma.) I am here to listen and support you through your process.

S U P P O R T

  • Beginning your doula journey?
  • Transitioning your journey? (Doula to nurse? Nurse to midwife?)
  • Burned out on your journey as a birth worker, care-giver, mother?

I’m here to listen to you and hold space for you, and help you identify tools and a personalized plan for your professional growth and development.

DEAR SISTER,

With all the projects I’m working on myself I cannot offer to do work for anyone else unless its paid, trade, or barter. I do devote my time and energies to social justice work, specifically for people of color/indigenous people, single teen moms, LGBTQI folks, case by case. 
There’s so much to do for our pregnant people!
READ MY POSTS! I wrote them for you! Stay in touch daily on instagram, explore my blog archives, (birthed 2013) hear my podcast TAPROOT DOULA on ITUNES and soundcloud – and listen to my birth story on THE BIRTH HOUR.
I write, post, speak OFTEN about trauma, processing trauma, language that returns power to women, families, and reclaiming birth stories. Feel free to use any excerpt as long as you credit me.
 
Thank you again for your beautiful work and your passion for birthing families.
xo Kate
