I’m Katharine Deeb, CD(DONA). I live in Los Angeles, (Culver City) and I’m a practicing labor/birth doula. I am the mother of two boys, 17 and 21, and I delivered both naturally, thanks to the help of amazing caregivers. I chose to become a birth doula based on my love of babies and women and the miracle of the birthing process. I am a proud member of DASC (Doulas of Southern California) and am certified by DONA (Doulas of North America).
I believe that women are their own best experts and have instinctual knowledge of their babies and their bodies. Birth is the most intimate, personal experience a woman can go through, and no two births are exactly alike. Regardless of my own personal birth choices and experiences, I am very open minded when it comes to yours. I will never push an agenda with you. I will support you and your choice of birth at the hospital, birthing center, or at home. My hope for you and your family is a positive, empowering birth experience with a healthy outcome. That’s what I strive to help you to accomplish, whether at the hospital, in your home, or in some cases, the operating room. I would be truly honored to be a part of your sacred experience.
“Thank you for helping to bring our daughter into the world. Your presence, knowledge, and kindness created an environment of comfort and support. We feel so lucky and privileged to have you as our doula. You have picked the right profession and no doubt will continue to thrive. “ -Andrew and Jennifer
“I wanted to make sure to thank you for everything you did for us. You helped us with our dream delivery and we couldn’t have done it without you! You were amazing – thank you so much!” –RK
