When she is not spending time helping families gently adjust to parenthood, she cares for an 11 month old little girl and a 20-month-old little girl a few days a week at their homes. She also lives and works at First Rain Farm in Nevada City where she milks Nubian dairy goats 2 mornings a week and helps with veggie harvest and other tasks around the farm. You may also find her working for the farm this summer at the Nevada City farmers market on Saturdays. Kat is also a passionate self-taught herbalist with some formal training as well. She loves to wild-craft using fresh, wild and local plants and make medicine, natural beauty and home products for family and friends. She hopes to someday create an herbal line focusing on mamas and babies and to teach parents about herbal practices that they can use and make at home themselves and about the overall benefits of plant medicine for themselves and their families.
“I look forward to meeting you and your family with non-judgmental, grounded and caring support. I am able to help with whatever tasks are within my means from house cleaning, managing guests, breastfeeding support, emotional support, meal preparation and planning and local resources when it comes to you and your family. Whether this is your first or fourth child, the weeks after childbirth can be overwhelming and I’m excited to help you shed the stress so you can spend more time with your precious family”.
