Hi, I’m Kathryn!

I’m honored to be your Placenta Encapsulation Specialist! I started my career as a doula and encapsulation specialist in early 2013 after training with Elizabeth Davis in a hands on midwifery intensive. I have been trained in bloodborne pathogens specific to placenta encapsulation, as well as many hours of education due to owning a tattoo business with my partner. Currently, I hold a California Safe Food Handlers card as well. My passion is helping you find joy and ease in the major transitions that are birth and parenting. I’m a book nerd and science enthusiast. In school, I excelled in biology and chemistry and love applying that knowledge to the world of herbs and traditional medicine.

Fun Fact: I have an associates degree in Automotive Technology. I fixed cars until I was 8 months pregnant with my first child. I planned on owning an auto repair shop someday. Becoming a parent sure is transformative!

Placentas encapsulated!

Kathryn is the best, she was very helpful with my placenta encapsulation. I appreciated her kindness and all the assistance she offered me. I did not use her as a doula this time but definitely next time around. Thank you Kathryn for everything, the pills are working out great, and I loved the umbilical cord keepsake.
