12 Moons Postpartum Care

    Practice overview

    I believe that you are the expert on your baby. I believe that you are doing it right. I believe your choices deserve to be celebrated. I deeply believe that you deserve empathetic, nourishing care too. I believe with education, dreaming. planning, learning how you want to be cared for, and learning how to communicate that to those who want to help you that the postpartum period can have moments of real joy and celebration even if we are very tired and worn thin. Postpartum should be time of nourishment for everyone as well as baby.I have been a Postpartum Doula since 2018 and a Certified Lactation Counselor since 2019 and have served over 25 families. I have served families in their postpartum journeys both virtually and in person. And offer my lactation support through a wholistic, doula lens. I am very passionate about planning for postpartum prenatally before the family is in the beautiful but wild swirling world of postpartum and offer standalone postpartum planning sessions to talk about what those first few weeks can look like and also how you would like for them to look.

      Katie’s non-judgemental, empathetic and gentle postpartum doula care was crucial to ensuring my transition into motherhood was peaceful and magical.

      By providing evidence based knowledge about the postpartum period, including breastfeeding and sleep, she made me feel fully prepared and so confident.

      Katie worked with my partner and I to uncover potential new parent friction points we didn’t previously know existed, and helped us form a plan to address them.

      Her commitment to supporting us was felt in both tangible ways – she encouraged us to text and call with questions and concerns 24/7 – and in intangible ways – knowing she was part of our village was deeply assuring.

      I cannot recommend Katie enough.

      Katie is one of the most skilled and thoughtful birth workers I’ve encountered. Her understanding of birth and postpartum goes beyond the surface, allowing her to serve her clients at the deepest level of their experience. She is highly efficient and organized while also projecting warmth and care. I can’t think of anyone more qualified or better suited to do this work.

      I have had the pleasure of training and mentoring Katie as a postpartum doula and I can say with confidence that she is an exceptional individual with a genuine passion for supporting new families and truly one of the kindest people I know. She is compassionate, attentive and goes above and beyond to ensure the comfort and well-being of the families she supports. Katie is a quick learner and has a natural ability to connect with families, making them feel comfortable and at ease. She has a strong knowledge base in postpartum care, infant care, and lactation support, which she continually expands through continuous education and experience. Katie is an amazing mother herself and draws on her own experiences to offer practical, relatable advice and support to new parents. She has a deep understanding of the challenges that come with parenthood, and she provides a refreshing perspective on how to navigate these challenges with confidence and grace. Katie consistently demonstrates excellent communication skills, attention to detail, and a kind and nurturing demeanor. She is an excellent postpartum doula and lactation consultant and will be a true asset to any family in need of support. I highly recommend Katie to anyone seeking a qualified and compassionate postpartum doula.
