Certified Postpartum Doula
- for San Francisco Bay Area Families -
Are you a new or expectant mother who is concerned with how you're going to handle motherhood and self-care after you give birth?
As your postpartum doula, I focus on mother-centered care. I tune into your specific needs to help you thrive as a new mother. During pregnancy, we begin by planning for postpartum and the arrival of your baby. Postpartum, I focus on supporting your physical, emotional, and informational needs. I will help guide your family through this new transition and sacred time in your life.

"I feel more prepared and capable as a new parent after having spent time with Kristin. Everything can be so scary, challenging, and confusing, but she made me feel like it was all part of the growing and learning process. I would recommend her to anyone wanting support postpartum. I was able to enjoy my newborn daughter more, with less stress and anxiety."

"Kristin was a godsend for my family. She took great care of me and my baby when we were at our most vulnerable. She treated my baby so warmly and lovingly. I could rest and care for myself knowing he was in good hands. For me, Kristin provided emotional support, problem-solving, empathy, and an extra pair of hands to get things done around the house. Kristin will help you and your baby in ways you didn't even know you needed."

"One of the biggest gifts Kristin gives this world is her presence and passion for helping others. Kristin provides compassionate care to families in an often vulnerable and delicate time in their lives. She is a caring, calm, and reassuring presence, and guides new families with focused care and attention. I couldn't recommend her enough, especially since I experienced firsthand the difference her support made for our family."

"Kristin was very knowledgeable with every question we asked. She taught us how to burp and bottle feed, showed us how to change diapers, reminded us how to properly swaddle, and assisted with breastfeeding information and positioning. She provided exceptional and genuine care for our baby with nurturing care. She made sure I was hydrated and nourished. She was knowledgeable and guided us with lots of tips."

She is gentle, warm, uplifting, and compassionate with everyone she meets. Her nurturing personality translates to the type of support she offers new moms and she goes above and beyond. As a therapist, I feel confident referring my clients to her for postpartum doula services."
