About Me

Hello! My name is Katie (she/her), and I’m delighted to meet you in this space. As a doula, I find my passion in encouraging, educating, and empowering birthing people and their families throughout their pregnancy, their birth, and beyond. It is my honor to support you, and hold space for you as you embark on this transformative journey.

My birth philosophy:  Each birth belongs to the birthing person and the baby being born. It is your journey to navigate, your story to tell. My role is to support you in your journey, to travel alongside you, to encourage, affirm, and empower you. I trust your body's wisdom to birth your child, and your intuition as you make choices for your birth. I seek to strengthen your connection to your inner knowing, your own deep wisdom. It is my role to be a grounded source of support for you, your partner, and your family throughout your birthing experience and beyond. This work is sacred, and it is truly an honor.

I love deep conversations, and also enjoy a good belly laugh! As a mama, I've discovered that being silly is one of my superpowers, and I know the power of laughter to release tension and relax. Another gift I value is my calm in the midst of chaos. No matter what is going on around me - whether it's my family chaos at bedtime, or an unexpected change of course in a birth - I am present to the moment, bringing grounding, clarity, and compassion.

I am a professionally trained birth doula through Community Aware Birthworkers. I offer trauma-informed care, and have further training in supporting pregnancy after loss, and in cranial sacral therapy for myofascial release in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I offer postpartum doula services, and am working towards my postpartum certification. I also have grief and loss expertise, and offer bereavement doula services for pregnancy and infant loss. I serve the Minnesota Twin Cities and surrounding areas. I attend all births - any place, any circumstance. If you want doula support during your pregnancy, birthing time, and beyond, you deserve a doula!

Recently, I am so grateful to have begun partnering with another experienced doula (and my dear friend), Lisa Fletcher of Seven Gates Birth. Lisa and I first met through the Childbirth Collective and quickly bonded over our shared perspective on the power of birth and our passion for supporting and empowering families in this transformative time. We started supporting each other as back up doula support for around two years before we decided to begin a true partnership model to serve families. This change has been a gift, to offer care from a collaborative place, and families have expressed such gratitude for the depth of care they receive, as well as for the variety of skills, trainings, and wisdom to this work. In our partnership, families get the chance to know us both during the prenatal time, as well as receive broader, communal-feeling support in the postpartum feeling. I continue to be so grateful for the ways in which this partnership has enriched the care I give as a doula, and my own experience in this work I love so much.


I live on Wahpekute, Očeti Šakówiŋ, and Anishinabewaki land in the Twin Cities with my wonderful spouse and my four beautiful, exuberant, amazing children.

"Katie was a calm and reassuring presence at the birth of our first baby. She stayed by my side throughout an unexpectedly long labor and delivery, gently encouraging me along the way.  She was the calm voice I listened for when I began to get anxious and tired.  She seemed to know just what I needed at just the right time, and was able to provide support for my husband during this process as well. I really appreciate all that Katie did for us to make the birth of our baby girl a positive and calm experience. I highly recommend Katie!"
