My name is Katherine. I am a DONA Certified Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator and Registered Massage Therapist.
I reside with my family (human and fur) in rural Alberta, just outside of Tofield. I live an active life, hiking and mountain biking being two of my favourite ways to enjoy the outdoors. I am passionate about birth, health and wellness, herbal medicine and gardening.
As a mother myself, I have been blessed with two empowering births. My first daughter was born at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and my second daughter was born at home in the water assisted by midwives. 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 birth 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 as a guide on this journey.
