Seed to sprout
What could YOU build with the right community?
Most doulas burn out at 18 months. If you’re lucky, you make it to 5 years before you’re done. Birth is never exactly how you want it to be every time. That’s the hard lesson Katie learned while caring for women all over Utah county. While working as a doula, she experienced the most beautiful joys and the most painful sorrows. She saw how birth work requires emotional connection, support and energy. She learned that if you don’t have strong unwavering boundaries, you lose your ability to serve and function. Those who need you most, watch as you wither away giving more than you can.
Katie knew that if most doulas are closing shop at their 5 year mark, the valuable knowledge and skills that those doulas built through hard-work and experience, are lost. Katie saw that what the world needs now is career-based doulas. She came to Soul Seed Academy with a dream of building strong sustainable doulas with the power to out-live and out-last anything their work or their world had to throw at them.
We had the incredible opportunity to interview Katie and hear more about how she got started. We also talked about how she built Doula Magic as a way for doulas to find their power and learn how to set healthy, emotionally protective boundaries with clients.
