I dont even know where to begin. Katrina is a goddess and if more people were like her the earth would be a better place. I admittedly come from a wild background and was a bit blindsided by expected parenthood. I met Katrina through a birthing class that my daughters mother signed us up for and she was an instant blessing in our lives. Not only did her patient and non-judgmental demeanor help to boost our confidence that we could handle child birth and parenting, but her presence through the pregnancy and at our daughters birth was helpful in ways that defy description. Katrina is an absolute treasure chest of knowledge and possesses the vocabulary and patience needed to share this knoweldge with anyone. I have no doubt that Katrina helped to give me the perspective i needed to become the father i am today. Even in that brief time that our paths cross she made an impact on me that still plays a role in the choices and decisions i make as a father almost six years later. If you have the good fate to have an opportunity to work with Katrina, just thank the stars and take the blessing.

Katrina was my postpartum doula in March 2016 when my first child was born. I ended up with a last minute C-section which resulted in a tough recovery. Katrina was very helpful and supportive during this time bringing forth a calm and stable energy when she would visit my family. I appreciated her practical, no nonsense approach to new Motherhood because she was very considerate of our feelings and priorities when we brought our daughter home. In my search for a PP Doula, it was a priority for me to find someone who was also a Mother. Katrina is very knowledgable in areas that are not discussed often because she has personal experience with them: C-sections, premature birth, twins, and other issues that are struggles for new parents. Futhermore, she provided a plethora of resources including a prenatal massage therapist, acupuncturist, and a lactation consultant to name a few. Above everything, Katrina has become a friend to our family and naturally, she is someone he highly endorse to all families for work as a PP Doula.
