ABOUT KATE

As a certified prenatal fitness educator, doula, and childbirth educator, Kate has been working with mothers and babies for over five years. Her background in dance has led her to having a great interest in the physical changes that pregnancy brings about and how mothers can both honor and strengthen their bodies during this unique time in their lives. Kate brings her love of movement, as well as her experience in the childbirth profession into her classes and workshops as she comes alongside mothers helping to empower, support and educate.
