NEW YORK CITY AFFILIATED DOULAS
Kat Raynor — Tier 5
Kat Raynor – Inspired by the power of having a natural birth with her two children, Kat trained with Celeste Rachel and is currently pursuing her Dona-Certification to share her insight with other women. She grew up in the loving and cheerful chaos of a large, close-knit Irish-American family in Brooklyn. In and out of each others homes, family members provided mutual nurturing and shared child-rearing in an atmosphere that encouraged humor and tolerance. From this background, Kat almost instinctively offers tenderness and support to expectant mothers and their partners. With a firm belief in a woman’s innate abilities, she infuses the birthing process with a gentle spirit of joy dedicated to making every birth a positive and empowering experience! She began her journey as a doula with the honor of coaching her sister through her labor and delivery. Kat lives with her husband and children in the same neighborhood where she grew up.
