She began her studies in 2009, with a focus in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum support. In 2012, Katrina became ICEA certified as a childbirth educator and DONA certified as a postpartum doula.
Along the way, she’s trained in RIE® Foundations, Ayurveda for the childbearing year, Steiner for the early years and Montessori for babies.
The mother of a preemie, she completed studies in 2018 to become a NICU Breastfeeding Specialist and mentors doulas through her training “Supporting NICU Families.”
Katrina’s practice is influenced by the ‘ethos’ of “Parenting from the Inside Out” and the aggregated knowledge of her professional experience and training.
In a time where information is plentiful and experts are a google search away, Katrina seeks to offer families guidance by having them ask themselves the questions to intuit their own path as parents.
Driven by the knowledge, successful birth and postpartum outcomes are greatly enhanced when parents are supported; she’s provided postpartum care to families days, nights and virtually and labor support at home and hospital births.
While Katrina is based in Los Angeles, she supports families around the world. Regardless of where you are in your parenting journey, Katrina is excited to support your family.
