My name is Katie Goemaat, and for the past 6 years, I have been supporting families in their birth and postpartum journey. My passion is for freedom of choice through education and support. I believe that a baby's entrance into the world has a lasting impact on the entire family, and my primary goal is to help the arrival of a new baby to be a positive experience where families feel confident, informed, and surrounded by care, love, and respect. I specialize in providing physical and emotional support to families desiring a natural birth, but I believe that every new family deserves a doula to help them in their birth journey; from home birth to high risk induction, all mothers can benefit from added support. I incorporate the importance of education and informed decision making into all of my doula practice. Please contact me with any questions about my birth and postpartum doula packages!
I am a certified labor doula and childbirth educator through Childbirth International. I also received training through the toLabor organization. I am a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist through Lactation Education Resources.
