San Francisco,

Bay Area Doula

Hi, I am Catherine,

Are you tired of "Googling" all of your pregnancy concerns? As a Doula and experienced labor and delivery nurse, I help my clients decrease overwhelm and feel empowered during and after birth.

About Catherine Chin

I am a Native of San Francisco, growing up right in the center of the city. I met my husband in college, and moved around the country with him while he finished school. We have two boys and are both happy to be back in San Francisco.

I have many years of experience as a Labor and Delivery Nurse, as well as High Risk Antepartum care. I also spent many years working in Intensive Care Units across the country. I chose to become a doula because I missed being able to provide one-on-one labor support to growing families.

Catherine, my sister-in-law, volunteered to be my doula for the birth of my first baby. Prior to this, having a doula didn’t even cross my mind. I’m so grateful she volunteered because I couldn’t imagine giving birth without her. She created an ambiance in my delivery room, with essential oils and flameless candles, which made me feel at ease. She guided me through every contraction, and every stage of labor. She even gave my fiancé tips on how to relieve my pain during labor. I would recommend her to everyone and plan to have her by side when I give birth to my second baby. If you’re in need of doula services, look no further.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to have worked with Catherine. Her compassionate nature and educated demeanor was very grounding for me during my pregnancy. As a nutritionist and hypnotherapist who loves research, I adored that she was able to help me understand all the different stages of pregnancy as well as Labor/ delivery. She was an amazing advocate and cheerleader for me when it came to supporting my birth preferences during this transformational time.

Additionally, Catherine’s labor and delivery nursing experience made me feel even more supported, because I knew she understood medical language and processes with all of her years working as an L & D nurse. I highly recommend choosing Catherine as your Doula, you are in great hands!
