Katie TigheCatonsville, MarylandAbout Me
I grew up as the daughter of a midwife. I went with my mother into the Amish and Mennonite communities where she attended and supported women. I grew up learning that birth and breastfeeding was normal. My first birth was a beautiful birth center water birth in Maryland. I lived in Amsterdam, the Netherlands for a couple years where I had my second baby. Although I planned a home birth, I experienced a very rare emergency and gave birth by cesarean. While I lived in Amsterdam, I began training to be a birth Doula and met amazing birth workers and advocates from around the world. After I moved back to Maryland in 2017, I earned my certification as a Birth Boot Camp Instructor (BBCI) and offer a range of classes for parents and families for their amazing birth. I am passionate about supporting those on the journey into parenthood. Each new, unique birth experience tests us as supporters and community members to listen and hold space for new chapters and the lives that are changed by birth.
My passion for childbirth is never ending. I am in the process of finishing my certification to be a Spinning Babies® Parent Educator.
I travel up to 45 minutes from Catonsville, MD for private classes (additional fee may apply for private classes).
I will be on maternity leave mid May 2019 thru mid summer 2019. Follow me on facebook for updates and specials! My Class Schedule
