About Kristen: “I was drawn to this work unexpectedly, by way of my yoga practice. As a yoga teacher, I have witnessed dozens of mamas navigate the ever changing path of pregnancy and heard them share stories of fear and victory, challenges, and unwavering support. It has been an honor to witness, and I felt called to nurture their passage in a deeper way. The journey of pregnancy, labor, and delivery is beautiful and challenging and should be celebrated and bolstered.
As a doula, my goal is to empower women to make the best choices for themselves and their babies by offering evidence-based information, an objective viewpoint, and unconditional support throughout her labor. I recognize that all women are coming from a different set of circumstances and levels of support. My intention is to offer a presence that best meets the needs of mama and her support system, whether that is a spouse, birth partner, family, or friend.”
Kristen is a DONA trained birth doula working toward her certification. As a 500 RYT, she can offer additional services such as individual prenatal yoga sessions and prenatal yoga for couples.
