Karen V. | Postpartum Doula in Raleigh, NC

Bump and Beyond Family Services LLC

    Practice overview


    Hi, I'm Karen! I'm a Certified Professional Birth and Postpartum Doula in the Raleigh area of beautiful North Carolina. I'd be honored to have the opportunity to get to know you and hear about your birth goals and desires and provide support to you and your family as you embark on your journey to starting or expanding your tribe.

    I became a doula so that I could provide support and empower both expecting and postpartum families to have better birthing experiences, to have the experience they not only desire but ultimately deserve to have. I received my certifications through the Madriella Doula Network in 2022. I'd be honored to have the opportunity to get to know you and hear about your birth goals and desires.
