Katie Bates

Postpartum Doula

While living in England, Katie was exposed to a very natural, thorough, and extensive system of perinatal care. (Just one example, home visits for the first 8 weeks for every baby!) This was a revelation to her, and led her to doula work here at home. 

Katie has a deeply held belief that when women and couples are supported, listened to, and provided with unbiased information, they will make empowered decisions that are best for them and their families. Her wish is to help women thrive in the postpartum period with compassion and joy. 

Katie is the mother of three grown children and one grand puppy.
