My name is Katherine Harding, I am a mother of two, and I am currently in the process of becoming a lactation counselor. I know pregnancy and motherhood are not easy. I know giving birth can be even harder.
Birth partners are important in helping labor go smoothly as they can provide both emotional and physical support. While everyone that probably comes to your house or meets up with you from the time they find out Mama is pregnant until months after the new baby arrives only wants to know how Mama and baby are doing - your role is important.

Ciera was a warrior through her pregnancy and chidbirth and is such an amazing mom to her beautiful little girl. If you have a moment, please watch Ciera's real and raw video about pregnancy and childbirth and all that comes with it - ups, downs and everything in between.
Tamara was a wonderful doula! We had the pleasure of having her support us throughout the pregnancy, labor & delivery, and postpartum. During the pregnancy, she helped us build our birthing plan, research treatments for my diagnosis of gestational diabetes, and prepare and transition into a family of 5.
