My name is Katherine Reed. I stumbled onto my passion for birth when I was sixteen during a high school Labor and Delivery internship. I attended my first birth as a labor companion when I was seventeen, and then did my training to become a Doula through DONA in 2002. In college I got my associates degree in Arts and Sciences as a prerequisite to becoming an Nurse at UVSC where I became an LPN for a short time. At the time of becoming a Doula I also became a HypnoBirthing practitioner. I have taught for 17 years and just recently retired from teaching the HyponoBirthing Course in May of 2019.
I have five children four of which are HypnoBirthing babies. As a family we love to go boating at Lake Powell several times a year. My husband recently celebrated our 21st year of marriage. The scariest thing I have done to date is teach another human to drive! I have been a soccer and dance mom and loved every second of it. Our currant sport our family is involved in is Mountain Biking and it is an incredible sport. I'm lucky to have a family that supports what I do. Being on call is exciting and I love the surprise and excitement that babies bring.
