Cate has had a busy practice as a birth doula since 2008, when her Sister-in-law asked for her support. Being present for the birth of her nephew was a life changing event, which inspired Cate to change careers. She keeps herself busy working as a birth and postpartum doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, and recently became a Registered Nurse with future plans to become a nurse midwife. She believes that birth is a natural, normal, and sacred process, which she trusts deeply. She is passionate about her work and believes in the power of information and knowledge providing the foundation for an empowering birth experience. She lives in Roslindale with her husband, two cats and a new dog.
