Katie Jackson LCCE, ICBD
I'm a California native currently living in the beautiful state of North Carolina. I have always been interested in the human body and I graduated with a degree in Public Health Education. My background is in chronic disease prevention and corporate wellness.
After my first child was born, I realized I had been very unprepared. I didn't have a great experience and I set out to learn more about pregnancy and birth. I entered my second birth feeling more informed and confident. It was transformative for me. I discovered a new respect for myself and a passion for women's health. I've felt inspired since then to have a career that supports women through the magnificent journey of pregnancy and birth.
After my third child was born, I started my training. I believe the process of pregnancy and birth is so important and deserves respect, thoughtful preparation, and care. This means thinking beyond the idea of a healthy baby. That's important too and something everyone would hope for. To me, there's also a bigger picture. This involves parents understanding all of the options and being able to make informed decisions about their care. I believe birth can be much more powerful and satisfying when the needs and preferences of the laboring person and the partner are recognized and respected. Birth is a significant life event and research shows that the day your baby is born is a day you never forget.
As a doula and an educator, I am dedicated to providing evidence-based information, inspiring confidence and helping women and their partners have a positive experience.
