Prepare for. labour, birth and postpartum in the comfort of home. 


I didn’t know what a doula was until a month before the birth of our son. After our first meeting with Kat, my wife and I knew immediately we wanted her to be with us in the hospital for the birth of our son. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made! We had such a wonderful experience working with her. Looking back, I don’t think we would have been able to achieve everything we had set out in our birth plan without her. Her knowledge, professionalism, encouragement, positivity, and unwavering support throughout the entire process was remarkable. Her postpartum visits were extremely valuable and helped us immensely in our new roles as parents. Kat, we cannot thank you enough! ~ Mark and Aleisha
