Katie Mack has been a doula for 14 years, attending more than 300 births at home and in the hospital. Her personal experiences allowed her to understand that birth is unpredictable, but can always be approached as a process. Her first son, Collin, was born at home, while her son Noah, was born at a hospital, after a home birth transfer. Her philosophy is to aim for low-intervention births, helping parents in deciding when/if/how to intervene thoughtfully, as necessary, and to protect the natural process as much as possible through care, attention, and hands on help. Years of experience allow for a doula to support each unique birth, with an understanding of how healthy variables can fit together differently each time. Katie enjoys the work of supporting this natural process, including witnessing and counseling women in their growth as mothers, and couples as families. She enjoys helping partners find their comfort zone with labor so the couple can feel connected, knowing their doula will be there no matter what to help them. Katie relies on a bag of tricks which includes skill in positioning mother and baby for an efficient and easier birth, therapeutic touch, familiarity with natural remedies, yoga and nutrition, as well the ability to work in any setting, fostering team work that helps parents feel confident in their choices.
