THIS IS MOTHERHOOD
How may I be of service?
When you are respected, supported, and celebrated throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum it makes a lasting impact on the rest of your life.
When serving as your Birthkeeper, my goal is to provide you with truly holistic support throughout pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period.
Let me capture you in your most powerful feminine moments, and deliver you a gallery of images that will remind you of your strength and that will be treasured for generations to come.
All of my birthkeeper packages include photography at no extra charge, but I also offer it as a stand alone service.
Join me in a one-on-one virtual birth prep container in which we embark on a journey of self-discovery to uncover your fears, blocks, strengths, vulnerabilities, personal and inherited traumas, and anything else standing in the way of your ability to trust yourself, to surrender to the process, and to tap into your own power and sense of authority.
Do you want to become a sovereign doula or birthkeeper? Do you wish to answer to no certifying body and forge your path through radical responsibility, personal authority, self-exploration, and experience? My virtual apprenticeship will prepare you to serve the women of your community AND will provide you with the tools you need to create a sustainable, successful business.
Allow me to support you through this monumental
Hey friends, I’m Kate!
I am a holistic birthkeeper, professional birth photographer, and massage therapist serving families in San Antonio TX + the Central Texas Hill Country… but above all, I am a mother myself. I have three young boys, two of whom were born at home. My first birth experience was the catalyst for becoming the person I am today. After I birthed my first son, I knew I wanted to be a birth worker. I knew I wanted to walk with women along their journey to motherhood. I truly believe your birth experience impacts you for the rest of your life. All of mine have!
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers — strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” —Barbara Katz Rothman
I have now attended over 150 births, and what I have learned is that the birth process works best when it is completely undisturbed. As your birthkeeper, I am here to encourage you to trust your intuition, to support YOUR autonomy and authority, to help facilitate inner growth throughout this rite of passage, and to witness you step into your innate feminine power. As your birth photographer, I work to deliver a gallery of images that captures your raw beauty and intrinsic strength as you bring your child into this world. I love my job, and I take it seriously because I know just how powerfully transformational this experience is.
More about me
"My experience with Kate was seriously life-changing. As a first time mom I knew I wanted to have an experienced woman support me holistically through my pregnancy & birthing experience but I wasn't quite sure what that looked like— there was an instant connection when we first met and she felt more like family to me than a hired professional, she made me feel comfortable. From the plethora of resources she provided to pre/post-natal massages, postpartum meals & just overall womanly support throughout my pregnancy, birth, and postpartum time, Kate showed me exactly how women should be cared for, loved, and supported during this special rite of passage time and WOW her knowledge and service to other women blew me away. Our experience with her made a huge impact on my life and I would absolutely love to have her in my birth space again in the future. Kate has turned into a dear friend & like family to us and I can't help but share about my experience & recommend her to all of my newly pregnant mama friends."
