Birth Doula Support
As a birth doula, I provide support to families through the journey of pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
This support encompasses your physical, emotional, and informational needs during the childbearing year.
Doula support is not only for crunchy home birth families or for folks who are seeking an unmedicated natural birth (though, of course, I love those kinds of births & supporting them!). It is also for mothers planning a Cesarean, or planning to have an epidural, or planning to have an elective induction. Doula support can create a more positive birth experience with any kind of birth.
I am here for you, whatever path your birth may take.

"Having a doula for the birth experience is so important,
and it was a life saver for me as a first time Mom.
Kirsten did an amazing job preparing my husband and I for the big day.
She worked with us ahead of time, establishing trust and communication so that when it came time for delivery we were all on the same page.
She is extremely attentive to her clients
--anticipating what they need before, during, and after the birth."
"Kirsten is the most loving, kind hearted and genuine person there is.
Her love for birth and her gentle spirit is contagious.
I felt like I had known her for years during my pregnancy and birth journey because she was able to offer me so much comfort in every way.
Because of her, I was able to birth the way I have always dreamed
without fear or hesitation."
