What is a Doula?

A doula is a non-medical trained professional who provides informational, physical, and emotional support throughout your pregnancy and birthing journey.
Prenatally Kathy will work with you and your partner to build a strong foundation that will have you feeling comfortable and confident, but Kathy’s guidance and support will also continue throughout your labor. Kathy’s expertise in birth provides a calm assurance for any birth situation.
Kathy is on call 24/7 from the moment of hire to ensure the most comprehensive support for you.

What is a Birth Boot Camp Childbirth Class?

Birth Boot Camp is a 10-week childbirth education course training couples in unmedicated childbirth and breastfeeding through contemporary education. You will receive a 150 page up-to-date training manual and participate in fun class exercises. My classes are not lectures, they are an interactive and fun way to gain the knowledge you need to feel confident and prepared for your birth!

What is placenta encapsulation?

Placenta encapsulation is the process of dehydrating and grinding the placenta into a course powder, which is then placed into small capsules for you to consume, similar to how you would a vitamin. This process begins as early after birth as possible, but still can occur if the placenta has been frozen for some time.

Placenta capsules may:

  • Help to balance your hormones
  • Replenish depleted iron levels
  • Increase milk production
  • Reduce post-natal bleeding
  • Increase your energy levels
  • Make for a happier, more enjoyable post-natal period
  • Assist the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state

The absolute #1 best decision I made in regards to my pregnancy and birth experience, hands down, was hiring this amazing woman. Kathy is one of the most gentle, caring, selfless people I’ve ever met, and I knew from the moment that we sat down with her to discuss her services that she was the person that I wanted on my team to help my husband and I bring our son into the world.

I would absolutely recommend her and her services 1,000 times over – you will not find anyone better!
