Postpartum Doula Profile
Hello! I'm Kat Head, and I would be honored to support you during your postpartum period.
I trained as a postpartum doula through the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional
Association (CAPPA) in March 2019 and have been working with Rochester families ever
since. In 2020 I became a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) and really love the
collaborative detective work that is lactation support. I enjoy working with families that use
spoken English and/or American Sign Language.
I became passionate about the postpartum period after having my first daughter in October
2017. I had a birth doula for that experience but hadn’t ever heard of a postpartum doula. I
found that there is so much information out there about what to do or not do that it was
tough to know who to believe or where to start. Now, as a doula, I feel strongly about
providing evidence-based information and supporting whatever decision my clients come to.
I am truly here to assist you in becoming the kind of parent you want to be. Areas of focus
that I excel at include assistance with how to ask for help and community building, food
preparation, spending quality time with older siblings, mental health support and bringing a
calm and curious perspective to lactation challenges.
In other areas of life, I am interested in ASL-English interpreting, being outside,
homeschooling/unschooling, my amazing women friends, tarot, and the time to enjoy one
amazing cup of coffee
