Learn how doulas help moms and babies at the Klamath County Library!
Wednesday, May 9th 6pm
Downtown Klamath County Library
Doulas support moms-to-be and their newborns before, during and after childbirth to improve health outcomes throughout the birth process. Meet some local doulas and learn more about what they do at a Q&A session on Wednesday, May 9th at 6 pm at the downtown Klamath County Library!
Professional doulas Christina Cossairt, Katie Sundstrom and Katie Minich will explain what they do to aid moms and babies, and point you toward local resources you can use to make a doula part of your birth plan. Attendees will also have a chance to win gift certificates for services provided by Klamath Falls doulas!
Cossairt is a birth, pregnancy, adoption, and postpartum doula. She’s been a doula for four years, inspired to seek the profession after having a supportive experience with her own doula. She trained through Birth Arts International and is certified as a Traditional Health Worker.
Minich is a birth and postpartum doula, yoga teacher and henna artist. Like Cossairt, firsthand experience with doulas for the births of two of her children led her to become a doula herself. Minich trained with and is currently awaiting certification from DONA International, is a member of the Oregon Doula Association and is pursuing state certification as a Traditional Health Worker.
Sundstrom is a birth and postpartum doula, midwife’s birth assistant, Bengkung belly binding specialist and a placenta encapsulation specialist. She has seven years of experience as a doula, trained through DONA International and trained with a specialist midwife in the UK to aid in breech births.
