Katie Wise, ERYT, RPYT, CD (Certified Doula) From
a young age, Katie had a passion for and trust in the experience of
birth, inherited from her father who caught over 300 babies, including
Katie! At thirteen, she had the honor of witnessing a natural childbirth
at Boulder Community Hospital, and was in awe. Katie believes that
women's bodies have the wisdom to give birth, and her purpose in
supporting and educating pregnant women is to uncover and foster that
instinct and faith.
Katie's experience attending births is
at the heart of her work. Whether teaching yoga, or educating parents in
childbirth, she draws extensively on her experiences assisting women
through their pregnancy and labor. She educates couples with her
innovative and effective Childbirth method, "Inspired Birth," which
combines the best of Bradley, Birthing From Within, and Hypnobirthing,
with humor and a deep caring for each family. She believes that birth
itself is a divine teacher, showing women their strength, and the beauty
of surrender. Katie has served at over 180 births, and her doula work
was recently featured on NPR. She currently serves families in the
Boulder area through her doula practice, The Boulder Doula Circle, and mentors and trains new doulas.
