About Me

Kate Scott Birth Doula
Greetings!

While in college, I worked at a reproductive health center with staff midwives who introduced me to the world of birth work. They encouraged me to attend a DONA workshop, which I did later that summer. I was beyond excited at the prospect of taking my first doula clients, but I initially did not feel comfortable promoting these services without first expanding my knowledge and having more adequate exposure. Therefore, in 2015, I found and completed a year-long apprenticeship with Welcome Home Midwifery Services, a nonprofit organization based in the Sacramento region. This invaluable education provided me with an intensive 8 week training followed by multiple mentored birth experiences. My time with WHMS helped to define my high quality standards of support which I believe that every pregnant person deserves. I am dedicated to providing the best doula care to individuals and families of all personal circumstance.

As a doula, I encourage every client to learn about the range of options available to make informed decisions about choices that fit their individual needs. My primary focus is to promote the mainstream use of evidence-based, trauma informed, and culturally humble care for all pregnant individuals. Currently, I am accepting birth doula clients and would be enthusiastic to meet with anyone interested in learning more about the support that I provide.

At the end of the day, birth is not just a process, but your personal experience. I would be honored to guide you along the way.

When not attending births, I work as a Donor Specialist with Gift of Life Michigan. I have a degree in Community Health Education and a passion for reproductive health. I currently reside in downtown Ann Arbor and spend much of my free time spoiling my cat, Jojen. My hobbies include painting, reading, and attending live music events.

If you are interested in my birth doula services, please contact me to schedule a free consult.
