Birth Doula

Birth Support

The services I provide are tailored to fit your unique needs, with the goal of helping you achieve the birth experience you desire.

Drawing on my experience in working with families, I am passionate about supporting women and new families through this amazing journey.

I believe that birth is normal and that my role is to support both mom and partner so that you may have a satisfying birth as you define it.

I work in pregnancy with my clients to prepare for birth; fully through your birthing time, and ensure you are fully supported with your new baby in the tender postpartum time.

I recognize that your birth experience is a memory that you will carry for life, and am committed to helping you make it a great memory.

What to expect

Let's meet. I have a beautiful space in a downtown clinic. We can talk about all things pregnancy and your unfolding journey. I look forward to connecting. Please send me a message and I will reach out to arrange for us to meet.

My birth philosophy includes being dedicated to helping women have empowering birth experiences on their own terms.

Kind Words From Clients

“Kathleen was an incredible support for our journey into becoming a new family. She was an integral part of the birthing process. She supported both of us before, during and after the birth. We couldn't imagine having gone through this experience without her.”
Bailey, Kelowna
“Kathleen brought immense knowledge to our meetings. She was a guiding light throughout my labour and birth. .Postpartum she supported with home visits, check-in texts and phone calls, a shoulder to cry on, a cheerleader to celebrate the wins with and much more. She felt like a best friend at the end of it all. We can't thank her enough and she'll be one of the first people we call when we become pregnant again. Thank you Kathleen!”
Laura, Kelowna
“My wife and I leaned on Kathleen more than I would have thought when my wife first talked me into it. She's a total rockstar and I'm glad we worked with her. I was reluctant at first but I can't say enough good things. She just makes the whole process less stressful and educated us so well. She saved us many hours of sleep, brought calm to the chaos and saved the two of us from disagreements. Worth it!”
Brian, Kelowna
