About me

Hello, my name is Katie. I’m a Licensed Nurse, Postpartum Doula and Certified Breastfeeding Specialist with over fifteen years of infant-care experience and a passion for sharing my expertise with new parents. Shortly after becoming a mother in 2013, I realized I was called to support women during the early stages of motherhood. I believe that when a woman becomes a mother, she is forever changed, and the new instincts she acquires are powerful. My team of compassionate postpartum doulas and newborn care specialists provides in-home postpartum doula support to families in Houston and surrounding areas.

Gentle Sleep Coaching (Virtual)
I encourage the use of “sleep shaping” techniques with my doula clients in the newborn phase. I do not offer formal sleep consulting earlier than the four-month mark. I have sleep-trained older babies, however, my preferred window for sleep coaching is when they are between 4-7 months. Package includes: •15-minute free discovery call to discuss your needs and see if I’m a fit for your family • 1 -hour zoom call to discuss your family’s daily routine, the various sleep methods available and decide the right approach for your family • Detailed sleep plan in PDF form, tailor-made for your baby • 10 days of text/email support to coach you through your family’s journey to healthy sleep • One final success call

In-home Lactation Support
I offer a comprehensive 1.5-hour in-home visit for mothers who have recently had a baby and need help with breastfeeding. During the visit, I will provide guidance on positioning, achieving a proper latch, treating sore nipples and breast engorgement, and finding a comfortable breastfeeding position. I will also bring a scale to weigh the baby before and after a feed to see how much milk they are transferring, answer questions about breast pumps, size you for a flange if needed, troubleshoot problems, and make referrals as needed. You will also receive a personalized care plan and 2 days of virtual support through the "Helpme Feed" app and a 30-minute follow-up call if needed.
