Allison Katayama

Birth Doula 

Allison has recently completed her birth doula training with DONA in Santa Rosa, CA. She is just getting started, but is beyond excited to meet new families and provide excellent experiences for them. As a trained teacher, she loves educating expectant parents about pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenthood. When Allison got pregnant with her daughter in late 2019, she thought she knew what to expect from the pregnancy/childbirth experience. The pandemic taught her otherwise. She can empathize with parents giving birth during this trying time. She strongly believes that everyone deserves support during their birth. It is her passion to help birthing people and their partners feel prepared and informed for this momentous occasion in their lives! She is the proud mama of her daughter, Finley, who was born in August 2020. She is knowledgeable in breastfeeding/chestfeeding as she breastfed Finley for over a year. In her spare time, Allison loves to hang out with her family and practice yoga.
