Hello! I'm Kat Head. I live and work in Rochester, NY. I would be honored and excited to support you during this singularly special time.
I am certified as a Postpartum Doula through the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA). I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) through Healthy Children Project, Inc.
I became passionate about the postpartum period after having my older daughter in October 2017. My second daughter was born in November of 2020, and my enthusiasm for all things post-birth has only grown and deepened. I am very interested in everything about the new parent experience - newborn behavior, new emotions and the nitty-gritty of daily life. In my work as a CLC, I enjoy informing and empowering breastfeeding parents. With all things postpartum, there is so much information out there that it can be tough to know what to do or where to start. I feel strongly about providing evidence-based information and supporting whatever decision you come to. I am truly here to assist you in becoming the kind of parent you want to be. You know best about how to parent your babe!
In other areas of life, I am interested in ASL-English interpreting, house plants, bullet journaling, respectful/peaceful parenting, Buddhism, being outside, collage art and mindfulness.
