Not surprisingly, many of the moms I speak with are often nervous and frightened about the next stage of their lives after having their baby. After all, there’s lots for them to consider including caring for their newborn, recovering from birth, particularly where there’s been any trauma and adapting to caring for their little one. And to add to the stress, their relationship is often put to the test as more and more time is demanded of them.

A postpartum doula provides crucial essential emotional, physical and mental support to new moms, easing the stress in their lives. Kristin Revere is the co-owner of a doula agency located in Michigan in the US and provides birth support and classes for new moms, including a new online course and they have students located all over the world. You’ll hear from Kristin about their amazing community and the support they can provide to mums like you.

About Kristin Revere

Kristin Revere

Kristin Revere is a woman who has always had a passion for supporting other women, both personally and professionally. In college, Kristin served on the Executive Committee of her sorority and organized events on campus related to breast cancer and other women’s issues.

She later facilitated nonpartisan political trainings for female candidates and volunteered for many nonprofits focused on women’s issues. Kristin firmly believes in the power that lies within a woman and has spent her life drawing it out of the women she surrounds herself with.

After the birth of her daughter in 2011, a new passion awoke within her. Kristin began reading and studying birth from all perspectives, philosophies and medical approaches. She joined organizations like the Healthy Kent Breastfeeding Coalition and used her event coordinating skills to build and promote the organization and create community awareness.

Kristin’s research led her to learn about doulas, and in 2012 she hired doulas herself for the support of her second birth. The level of compassionate care and comfort that she received from her doulas ignited a spark within Kristin that led her to the path of becoming a doula herself.

She earned her certification and began teaching Sacred Pregnancy classes in 2013 and has earned further credentials including Certified Sacred Doula in 2014, Certified Elite Labor Doula through ProDoula in 2015 and Certified Elite Postpartum and Infant Care Doula through ProDoula in 2016.

Kristin’s main passion as a birth and postpartum doula is to offer women and families resources, unbiased support, and understanding. Kristin is a listener, a friend, a confidant, an expert, and women intuitively feel stronger in her presence.
