KRISTEN GOLDEN of the doula circle

Kristen is incredible. She thinks of everything. She gives such great hands-on support. She teaches prenatal yoga, I suspect not just for the pregnant mamas, but also so that she can withstand long squatting positions and stay flexible enough to contort her body into the myriad of positions needed to support you during your labor!
