About me

Hi! I'm Kathleen, the founder of Boston Area Doulas, and a birth and postpartum doula. I love helping my clients find their inner strength and become the badass parents they were meant to be. I am a mom of two kids and prior to doula-ing, worked in education for 15 years. After the birth of my second child, it became clear that supporting and educating families was ultimately what I was put here to do! Please reach out!
