All About Me

Who I Am

I am a wife of a retired Army solider. A mom to fantastic Quadruplets who are about to launch to what the Lord has for them next. Yes you read that right I have 4 kids all the same age. I love Jesus! I'm passionate about leading my multicultural Youth Group on Thursday nights and singing on the worship team Sunday mornings.
As a Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, I feel honored to be able to share my expertise with families around South Puget Sound. I approach birth holistically, from a functional perspective believing that birth is a normal part of life. While providing physical support during labor, my role is also to act as an advocate for the birthing family. Supporting families postpartumly my greatest joy mentoring a family who is unsure of what they are doing, coming along side them and working myself out of a job becasue they no longer need my support.I believe everyone deserves love and support during their transition into parenthood.

"It was such a blessing to have Kathy attend the birth of our 3rd baby. She was so attentive and accommodating, she took care of things well before I knew I needed them. I couldn't image having done it without her. If you're considering hiring a doula, she's worth every penny!!" Amber Leveque

"Our doula was Kathy, she was warm and welcoming from the start. This was our first child and wasn't exactly sure what to expect. It was comfoting to have Kathy with us during the birth of our daughter. I had to be induced and was in the hispital for a couple of days before I had her, and Kathy was ready to come as soon as we checked in. She was able to provide lots of options to help manage pain and focus attention on other things. She thought of things we wouldn't have. Some of her tatics really helped me through transition, I felt very hot and nauseous and she helped me through that. She was able to distract me through the pain as well. If you are unsure about having a doula, I would suggest meeting Kathy and seeing for yourself. She brings a calm that is much needed to combat some fo the high stress that can happen during birth." Shell Carey

"Kathy was such a wonderful support during out pregancy, birth, and postpartum. She was increadibly in helping me overcome some of my birth anxieties during pregancy using energy work, helped with differnt position for comfort during labor (in addition to really calming emotional support), and was a great resource postpartum as well for me and my partner. These things were really just the begining and I couldn't adequately describe how helpful she was in a single review. We truly don't know what we would have done with out her. I would 100% hire her if we ever have another child." Kellia B

"Kathy is just the best. She was present at the birth of our son at home in May and then was our postprtum doula shortly after. I loved having her be such a integrated part of our journey becasue it felt like she really understood us by being there for it all! She cooked amazing meal, played with our 4 yr old, did energy healing sessions on me. She feels like a true friend now that I can call on for support. I'm so grateful to have had her by our side for the sacred and wild time of postpartum and highly recomment her for both birth and postpartum doula work. Every mama deserves the support of a wonderful soul like Kathy." Carissa Shaul

"Kathy Kinard was our choice for postpartum doula services when our newborn grandson joined our multigenerational family from the NICU. Supporting babies and their families is a passion that she approaches with calm energy, vast knowledge and experience, warmth, and compassion. Kathy is professional, organized, and an excellent communicator. She has met our changing needs every step of the way and we can't recommend her highly enough!" Laynette E
