Catherine Meyer

Postpartum Day Doula
Childbirth Educator
Prenatal Yoga Teacher
Breastfeeding Specialist

Catherine is a postpartum day doula, breastfeeding specialist and certified yoga teacher. Her intention is to help women embark on their journey gently through emotional and physical support with care, understanding and information, but also she wants to help them feel empowered, with the goal of making it an experience that they can fully enjoy.

 

In 2002, Catherine realized a childhood dream by becoming a Licensed State Midwife, in France, and enjoyed the great privilege of delivering over 500 babies. Then, she relocated to the United States in 2008, landing in San Francisco, where she has been raising her three children. In 2018 she became a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist TM with Lactation Education Resources. Along the way, she developed a strong yoga practice, that gave her an inner strength and taught her to live with compassion and awareness, and embrace life as it is. And, in 2020, she earned her RYT-200 yoga teacher credentials at Haum, and have been trained in prenatal and postnatal yoga with Jane Austin. Currently, she offers yoga at the Epiphany Center in San Francisco, a client-centered care for children, women, and families who are the most vulnerable in our society.

 

She volunteered also at San Francisco General Hospital as a postpartum doula, and at Eviction Defense Collaborative. Those experiences gave her a new perspective on life and renewed her desire to serve her community. Catherine’s mission is to accompany women and their families through the many joys and challenges of the first weeks of postpartum, and help them realize how strong they are.
