Editor's Note: Meet one of the most beloved and original members of the Emerald Doulas team! Birth & Postpartum Doula, Kallyn Boerner, has been an Emerald Doula since we first opened our doors in 2016! Kallyn brings experience, gentleness, and a little bit of magic to each of our clients and their birth spaces. You can read her full bio on our "Meet the Team" page, and learn a few extra, fun tidbits below!
Plus, be sure to check out Kallyn's Sunday Seminar in November, where she'll share her best tips as a professional, documentary-style photographer, for how you can capture your family's special moments in photos.
1. Give us a three word summary of who you are.
Nurturing, Playful, Intuitive
2. What drew you to a career as a doula?
I am constantly moved by the power that nonjudgmental support provides for people. Pregnancy, birth and postpartum is such a vulnerable time in families lives as they prepare for expanding their world as they grow their family base. It is always an honor to be on that journey with a family and something that I find fills my heart and soul.
3. What's rocking your world right now, in birth or in parenting?
Sharing the wisdom of Spinning Babies
4. When you're not doula-ing, where are we most likely to find you?
Running my photography business, gardening, hiking, playing with friends, walking our pups, finding good places to eat
