Your day can be positive, informed and remembered forever

Katie Jackson
Certified Doula, Educator and Photographer serving Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill areas

The days we meet our babies are some of the most intimate and significant moments of our lives. Whether you have one child or many, each time is beautiful and full of emotions.

I believe your experience matters. I love working with parents to help them enjoy the day they meet their child and have memories they will cherish for years to come.

The idea of giving birth can be overwhelming and fill us with anxiety. But it doesn't have to be that way. 

Having a professional by your side can help you have a positive experience. I am your sounding board, your calming guide, an educated resource and a professional who can document this life-changing process.

"Katie has such a peaceful demeanor. It's exactly what you need when you are having a baby. She has a passion for how strong women are and helps you to feel that in yourself. She really helps you be prepared mentally, physically and emotionally"


– Rachel

"Simply put, I could not have experienced an enjoyable birth without Katie. She was hands on when we needed, knowledgeable, and patient. There was a point around 22 hours when remember pleading "I can't do this!" and she said, “You’re exactly where you need to be." It's hard to put into words the confidence she instilled in my husband in me. Working with Katie is something we'll never forget—she is truly a gift."


– Bridget

"Katie is calm, caring, and supportive. She made my unmedicated hospital birth more than I ever could expect. She taught me the best ways to cope with the 22-hour labor I went through with my first child. I would recommend her 10 times out of 10!"
