Meet Katrina

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I am Katrina, a previously certified DONA birth doula (happy to explain why I did not recertify), certified Madriella birth doula, postpartum doula, and Childbirth Educator, a placenta encapsulation specialist, and total birth nerd!!

My heart is so full of passion to help families have a wonderful birth story and transition into adding your new baby to everyday life. I believe that education is essential in your birth story. Rather it's learning about pregnancy, labor, birth, immediate postpartum, or the fourth trimester, there is so much to know! 

I have always had such a desire to love on women and their families. When I was young, I was the odd kid that always flocked to pregnant women or new families. There has always been a beautiful passion in my heart to make life easier for them. In high school I had dreams of becoming a NICU nurse, where I began learning so much about birth and the newborn. Although my dreams changed, my passion for birth and babies has only increased over the years. I have now been a birth professional since 2017. 

Unlike quite a few other doulas, I do not have a vast array of specialties. While I have knowledge and training in a lot of other birth related fields, my passion and focus is on prenatal, birth and postpartum. When you hire me, you will know that I am 100% into you and your family, guiding you through this journey to the best of my ability. I am also very passionate about hospital births, where I feel moms can advantage the most with education on their rights and how to advocate for themselves. (But I also love a good ole' home birth or birth center birth!)

Having me as your doula means you get support, no matter how or where you choose to birth. I will make sure you have evidence-based information so that you can make an educated decision on choices that come up during pregnancy through postpartum. No matter what your choices are, I will support you. This is your birth, your body, your baby, and your choice! 

A little about me personally, I have been married for 19 years to my best friend. My husband and I have four adopted children, two wonderful "in-loves", and two incredible granddaughters!!! The oldest three have graduated and moved on, and our youngest is in the 9th grade. I am actively involved in my church, and proudly claim my love for Jesus. And on a lazy day (whatever that is, lol) you can usually find me making t-shirts, other crafts, playing a game with my kids, putting together a puzzle or reading a book.

I truly do look forward to meeting you, your partner, your baby, other children, and anyone else that plays an important part in your birth! Have a very blessed day!
