Postpartum Care

Getting to know your newborn baby as you settle into life as your new post-birth self calls for lots and lots of support. This can come from family and friends, if they understand the true needs of new parents. However, many new parents these days are left without the nurturing support they require.

As a postpartum doula, I can join you for this part of your journey, bringing ease and validation to your experience. I understand that the fourth trimester is a tender time, when many people may be feeling vulnerable and unsure of themselves. You don't need to do this alone.

"Katrina has a generous, gentle spirit. In our release session, Katrina listened and offered wise words to help me process and let go. After our session, I felt a noticeable increase in my energy and a reconnection to my source of creativity and intuition. I highly recommend Katrina. She is an expert in showing up and holding space in a kind, compassionate, non-judgemental way."  -Miranda K, Vancouver
