Karen Hatch, BIRTH & POSTPARTUM DOULA
Karen has been a nurturer since childhood. Her journey as a doula is a natural progression from being the neighborhood baby-sitter and the one everyone entrusted with holding their babies at church and family functions. She is the mother of two biological children and five adopted children whom she has raised since birth, and she has four grandchildren.
Karen is a certified labor and postpartum professional. She received her certification and training from Pro Doula. Additionally, Karen has obtained college degrees, including a Masters in Organizational Leadership, a Bachelors in Community Services from Siena Heights University, and lastly, an Associates in Mental Health and Addiction Studies from Wayne County Community College.
Karen is an advocate for mental and emotional health. She believes that new parents may feel overwhelmed with the demands of careers and life’s responsibilities which can covertly steal the excitement and confidence of a joyous birthing experience. As parents grow their families, Karen is there with support, expertise, and empowerment, coaching clients through pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period.
Having Karen as your doula, coach and/or postpartum support, allows you to focus on the well-being of your growing family.
