My name is Kim Racette. I have been a certified birth doula since 2004 and founder and teacher of Faithful Beginnings Birth Class. I feel honored and blessed by God to have been put on this path. I rejoice in childbirth, and I want all birthing stories to be good. My dream is that our grand-daughters and great-grand-daughters will come to have only positive stories of birth. Stories of strength and courage, stories of beauty and joy, stories that will empower them to have wonderful births of their own.

My birth doula package includes 1-2 prenatal consultations where we will discuss your birth preferences, educate you on your choices in labor and birth, and go over comfort techniques that you can use in pregnancy as well as labor. These prenatal visits help me to get to know you and what your birth vision is. I provide emotional, educational and physical support to Client during active labor and 1-2 hours after baby is born. It also includes one postpartum visit where we will talk about/process the birth and talk about any newborn questions you may have. I will be available by phone or email for questions during pregnancy and the postpartum period. I will be on call starting at 38 weeks until baby is born.
