About me

Hi there! My name is Katie. Through my own experience of giving birth to my rainbow baby, I have witnessed firsthand the benefits of a doula’s support. Since then, I have become a certified birth doula through DONA International and have found so much joy in supporting birthing people and their families as they work toward their own positive, empowering birth experiences. Although my background is in culinary arts and later, running a licensed family daycare, I have developed a strong passion for working with birthing people as they navigate pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I believe every birthing person deserves a doula, no matter how their baby enters this world. I also believe knowledge is power and enjoy helping my clients find the resources they need to make informed decisions they can feel good about. Whether I’m helping a client locate evidence-based information about inductions, reminding a partner to eat or rest during a birth, or holding a new parent’s precious baby so they can take their first shower at home, it is always a great honor and my pleasure to help however I can.

TENS Unit Rental
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) units are a fantastic, non-drug option for pain relief during labor. TENS units have been wildly popular in the UK, Australia and other European countries and have helped countless people achieve an unmedicated birth. They work by sending mild electrical pulses from where you apply the electrodes (pads), through your skin, to your brain. These electrical pulses act to distract your brain from the discomfort of your labor by giving your body something else to sense. ​If you are interested in using a TENS unit for labor, you must have signed consent from your care provider. You may not use a TENS unit if you have a cardiac pacemaker, have been diagnosed with heart disease or epilepsy, or if you have injured/inflamed skin, a rash or an eczema/psoriasis flare up where the electrodes would be applied. Due to the nature of this device, electrodes must be removed and the unit must be turned off prior to getting in or around water. Lastly, you must be 37 weeks or greater to use TENS unit unless your provider states otherwise. ​Your rental will be available starting at 38 weeks and will include: 1 Elle TENS unit, 1 unopened package containing 4 electrodes, 3 lead wires (1 spare), 2 AA batteries inside the unit and 2 spare AA batteries, 1 neck cord, 1 instruction manual, 1 quick-start guide, A Woman’s Guide to Drug-Free Pain Relief (booklet), and 1 carrying pouch. ​There is a $100 deposit which will be refunded upon the successful return of the unit.
