    Care philosophy

    I specialize in creating a non-judgmental space where individuals and/or couples are able to prepare for the upcoming journey of pregnancy through parenthood. My main goal is for individuals and families to achieve their maternity and paternity goals in a way that is both inclusive as well as personal.

    Pricing packages

    Complete Birth Doula Package
    $ 2950
    As your doula, I will be fully present with you through the entire experience. We will meet beforehand, to get to know each other, during our prenatal visit(s). At that time we will work through your birth (and breastfeeding) preferences (plan), and prepare to work as a team. I am happy to put together a postpartum plan with you too. I will be available through your pregnancy to help you be as comfortable and informed as possible through unlimited emails and/or phone calls/text. I will do this also, through sharing my knowledge of complementary care resources and local resource groups in the triangle.

We will come to the home, hospital, or birthing center for pickup. *Once we receive your placenta, we begin processing it typically within 24hrs. Your capsules are then delivered to you within two days. We will contact you to ensure your encapsulation is prepared and delivered to meet your needs.

    Childbirth Education Classes
    Combining Birthing From Within, Whole Body Pregnancy, & Pro-Doula methodologies; our birthing classes focus on assisting the parent(s) in recognizing the many ways in which we gather information and understanding. We will explore how learning reaches far beyond what is in our head, there is an innate knowing which is often called our intuition. We work with birth from the birther, partner, infant, and cultural perspective exploring tools that parents already have but may not recognize within themselves. The topics include a look into labor support, working through unexpected circumstances, bodywork and nutrition in pregnancy, decision-making when you don’t know what to do, pain coping, storytelling, and much more.

      Kirsten is wonderful! She went above and beyond for me, always making me feel comfortable and confident throughout my pregnancy and after as well. She is extremely knowledgeable and also always learning and researching to be able to give the best information. I would absolutely recommend Kirsten to anyone needing her services. She’s the sweetest woman, very professional and I am forever grateful to have worked with her.

      Kirsten was a huge help as our postpartum night doula support. She’s kind, supportive, engaging, and comforting. Taking care of yourself while having a newborn is critical to your ability to take care of a child and having Kirsten help us get some sleep made us better parents.

      Kirsten was a great help to me and my husband as we were figuring out our new lives as parents. She was so great with our baby, and took her health and safety very seriously. We were so thankful to have someone that we trusted watching over our baby so that we could sleep soundly. It took little effort to get Kirsten up to speed on our baby’s needs, and communication was always easy.

      Kirsten Lind was our nighttime doula for several weeks and provided excellent care for our newborn. She was professional, supplied helpful advice, and was very responsive throughout the entire process. Highly recommended.
