Katrina C. | Doula in Yukon, OK

beBelieve Birth and Doula Services

    Practice overview

    I am a certified DONA and Madriella Birth Doula. I am also certified through Madriella as a postpartum doula and a Childbirth Educator. My heart is full of passion for pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester.

    I began working with families when I was a teenager. The passion was instinctual and naturally grew as I got older. But it took me into my late 30's to turn this passion into my career. I immediately began learning everything I could about pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. I am continually taking classes, online and in-person, to gain more knowledge and education so that I can pass it on to my client!

    A little about me...I have been married for 18 years. My husband and I have four children, all adopted through foster care. And we now have two precious granddaughters (my very favorite if I say so myself 😉)

    I would really love to meet you and your family. Please contact me for a free consultation so we can get to know one another and see if I would be the doula you desire!

      I used KATRINA for the first time over 3 years ago with my hospital birth. She was very welcome prior and during labor with knowledge on what to expect for my husband and I. I could not have gone through that alone. When we were expecting our second, it was a no brainer to give her a call! I used her as my doula for my water birth at a birthing center, and man

        Girl, my career wouldn’t be where it is now if not for you! You taught me so much with C and left me amazed with J at how much you were in charge! I am so proud of you and SO grateful to call you my friend.

      When searching for a doula for my 1st child, I wanted someone who could advocate for me while in the delivery room. In order for that to happen, I knew I had to have a connection with the doula I chose. Katrina fit the bill! She provided all sorts of suggestions on laboring positions to the L&D team, which resulted in me delivering the way I had hoped for in my birth plan. When I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I knew I would need a lot of doula post partum services. Katrina taught me new things about babies, and restored order in my house (which made me very very happy). Reach out to her today and see how she can help you during one of the most important times in your life.

      Had a wonderful birth experience thanks to Katrina. It gave me peace of mind going through my first pregnancy with Katrina’s expertise to guide me and reduce anxiety. Had a very quick labor and delivery. Made good decisions regarding pain management due to Katrina’s advice. I would absolutely recommend her to friends and family. It was such a positive experience, and I felt that she gave me special individualized attention. I felt listened to, and that I could trust her and focus on the pregnancy without all the anxiety of the unknown.

      Katrina is the reason why I had a smooth delivery and she supported me and my family during a stressful postpartum period. From informative conversations prior to labor, to continuous care throughout labor, Katrina was there. Not only did she support me, but she supported my husband. She helped us weigh options during stressful times. Katrina has a very calming presence. She knew lots of pain management techniques that helped me get through contractions. She never left my side and encouraged me when I got tired. Katrina also gave me a huge gift, in that she took candid photos during labor and delivery. These are priceless keepsakes that I have to look back on. Lastly, Katrina’s help during postpartum was a Godsend! She helped me find a lactation consultant, gifted me items that aided in my recovery from giving birth, and came to my house to help out and encourage. She is a woman that you want on your team, both before and after birth!
