Katie has had three very different birth journeys delivering her babies. She delivered her first baby with midwives in a hospital and used an epidural to help her meet her baby girl, Elliette. For her second birth, Katie chose to have care through a birth center. After pushing for four hours, Katie transferred to a hospital to meet her second baby via c-section. Her second birth sparked her interest in becoming a birth doula, which she has been doing for the past two years.
Just recently, Katie met her third baby by delivering him unassisted in her car. Her birth with her son was fast and furious but turned out to be very peaceful even during this time of change and unease with COVID-19. Katie and her husband Eric were blown away and touched by the care they received from their midwife after they drove to the hospital. Their stay was safe and calm and more than they could’ve asked for.
