I am a certified birth doula, professional birth photographer, and licensed massage therapist serving families in Austin and the surrounding areas.
I believe that birth is a sensational, miraculous process of nature; a transformational experience for everyone involved. When you are respected, supported, and cared for throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period, I believe it makes a lasting impact on the rest of your life. I am dedicated to providing high quality, dependable support to you and your family to ensure this transition goes as smoothly as possible.
As your Doula, my goal is to provide you with the utmost support throughout pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period. I want you to emerge from your experience feeling positively charged; confident in your ability to tackle the challenges of motherhood. I’m passionate about evidence based birthing practices that support both mother and baby’s needs. My skills as a massage therapist assist me in providing comfort before, during, and after labor. I trust in women’s innate ability to give birth. My energy is calm yet strongly supportive as I offer comfort techniques or simply my benevolent, reassuring presence throughout the experience.
As your birth photographer, I’ll capture all of those oxytocin-charged, thrilling moments while respecting the intimate ambiance. I have ample experience navigating within the birth environment. I can seamlessly transition between my role as a birth doula, photographer, or shadow on the wall. This allows me to thoroughly document this once in a lifetime experience without taking anything away from it. You will have this keepsake to carry with you forever; to remind yourself of your raw strength and intrinsic beauty, and to commemorate the birth of this precious child. During labor and birth, your body naturally produces hormones which cause you to forget the experience. This is why having visual documentation of this day is so invaluable. Without these photos you will only have a fraction of this experience logged in your memory, but with them you will have an everlasting reminder of this wondrous event, down to every important detail.

I am so grateful that I found Kate. I was horribly unorganized and very late to hire a doula, moving into town just a month before my due date. She was flexible and fast to respond making it easy to get signed up at the last minute. Kate is a wonderful support, encouragment and resource. Her knowledge as a massage therapist helped me understand and treat sciadic nerve pain and was a great support during labor. Her calm, non-judgemental demenor was comforting as I went back and forth deleting some medical interventions from our birth plan and then adding them back in again. She's also just fun and all 4 of the family members I had present at the birth enjoyed her. I would highly recommend Kate and will be giving her a call again myself for any future pregnancies. -Christine
I couldn't be happier with our decision to use Kate as our doula. We debated back and forth about whether or not we "needed" a doula, and the answer is Yes!! You do need a doula, and Kate is the perfect balance of knowledge, experience and calmness we needed during labor. She came recommended from another doula that was already booked for our month, and we would highly recommend! With Kate's help, we were able to have the birth we had planned on. I knew I wanted to try a natural, free of intervention(as much as possible at a hospital) birth, but was also a bit nervous of the idea seeing as I had never gone through laboring before. Kate had the answers to all my questions, and was very reassuring of all our worries that come naturally being first time parents! She was the key extra person to have around to tell us when it was time to go to the hospital, and push on my hips/back when my husband was busy letting me squeeze his hand(s)!! Loved having Kate there for our labor, and also very helpful at postpartum meet ups for the all the questions you wouldn't know you had until after the babe arrives! -Bridget
Kate was essential to getting me through my tipsy turvy pregnancy/birth. Even after things didn't go our way multiple times, she stayed in call and was ready as soon as we needed her! She is a loving soul and she knew exactly what we needed when we needed it, especially when I was feeling like an overwhelmed hot mess! -Amanda
Kate was my doula & birth photographer and she was just... the best. She knew when to be there and when to step back. I honestly did not know when she was taking photos, but they all turned out incredible. Her composition, lighting, and effects are spot on (this is coming from a person with an art degree- she knows what she is doing)! Sometimes I look at the pictures when I'm feeling down and they remind me that if I could do THAT, then I can do anything. -Djuli
