My name is Katherine.  I am a DONA Certified Birth Doula and Registered Massage Therapist. 

I reside with my family in rural Strathcona County, just outside of Tofield, Alberta. 

As a mother myself, I have been blessed with two beautiful and empowering births.  My first daughter was born at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and my second daughter in a midwife assisted home water birth.  Birthing my babies in two different environments has enriched the care I am able to provide to my clients because I have personally experienced both hospital and home birth.  My births inspired me to support families in their childbearing years and I began my path as a doula in 2013.  It is my goal as a doula to help my clients achieve a birth that is empowering and one that leaves them feeling strong, respected and honoured.  My mission in this life is to return birth back to the hands of mothers, and to help women rekindle trust in their bodies.  As your doula, I support and respect your choices and vision.  This is your pregnancy, your story.  I would be honoured to walk with you on this journey.
