Hospitals Served: Grey Bruce Health Services
Services Offered: Postpartum Doula
My name is Katie Franklin. I am a postpartum doula working out of Kincardine, Ontario, though I also serve families in the Saugeen Shores area. I have a background in Health Sciences at Western University. I primarily studied social determinants of health – the societal factors largely beyond out control that influence health outcomes. I then studied to be a doula at Fanshawe College. This 2 semester program taught us about the full spectrum of doula work, however I have chosen to focus on postpartum support because I feel that sometimes support for new parents ends too soon after the birth – especially for those who do not have family members local to provide support.
