Labor Doula Faculty
Kristin is a CAPPA-certified labor doula, childbirth educator, yoga and meditation teacher in Denver, CO. She has an MA in International Affairs and holds ERYT-500 and PPYT certification.
Kristin considers herself a birthkeeper: a guardian and protector of the sacred passage of childbirth. The home water births of her two daughters, and the powerfully vulnerable and courageous births she has witnessed since 2009, have led her to view pregnancy and childbirth as natural and creative processes that have the potential to empower, enlighten, and transform. Through the years, her work as a birthkeeper has also integrated her studies in cultural birthing practices around the world, women’s nutrition, herbalism for women, and ceremony and ritual for the childbearing year/rites of passage. She is committed to issues of reproductive justice, ensuring all birthing persons have access to a doula, and breaking down the barriers that prevent women from having the information and support they deserve to make empowered and autonomous decisions around pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting.
