Favorite Wrapsody Colorway: Hope
Kathleen is a mom of 6 and wife to a super supportive husband! She currently resides in her hometown of Staten Island, NY where she runs her own business KG Doula Services, Empowering Mothers. One Birth At A Time.
It was right after the birth of her first child, twenty-two years ago, that Kathleen knew she wanted to know more about babywearing. Through the years and the births of her five other babies, Kathleen had a new found love and respect for babywearing.
In 2010 she found herself sharing her love of babywearing to her friends, family, random strangers…really anyone willing to listen!
In 2013, she founded and started the only babywearing group where she lives on Staten Island named, fittingly, Staten Island Babywearers! To this day, she is still an active member of the group and the babywearing community!
In 2014, the drive to learn more about babywearing and to be able to share within her community led her to The Center For Babywearing Studies. This is where Kathleen trained and certified as a Babywearing Educator. She now offers private babywearing consultations as a part of her business. Kathleen’s business also includes her extensive doula work:
- Not only is Kathleen a certified labor/post-partum/bereavement doula.
- She is also a certified professional doula trainer with Birth Arts International.
- and a certified breast-feeding specialist.
- …and she is a volunteer in-house bereavement doula for the PALS groups.
As if that weren’t enough, our lovely Kathleen is the creator of Mama’s “Go To” Salve, an amazing all natural all purpose salve made by hand in small batches & infused with love.
In her off time it is all about Kathleen and her family! During the summer months you will find her and her family on the beach. Her home away from home! She and her family love hiking and going on a family adventures!
Miraculously, she somehow finds time to be active in animal advocacy and rescue!
