Hi! My name is Kristy Martin and I have a BS in Sociology from Arizona State University and I am a Certified Birth Doula - CD(DONA). My course work includes - DONA Birth Doula certification training, Childbirth for Doulas, Breastfeeding & Lactation, Touch & Massage for Labor/Birth, Oils for Pregnancy/Delivery/Infants, Birthing from Within, Spinning Babies, Infant & Pediatric Massage, and Rebozo training. I live in Chandler and serve the valley areas of Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek, Mesa, and South Phoenix. I have experience in many areas including - cesarean birth, teen birth, high risk, VBAC, single mothers, and adoption situations. I am happily married to my husband Dan, and have 3 beautiful children - Parker (4) , Makena (5) , and Kyle (14). Besides my love for babies and the birth process - I am also obsessed with margarita pizza, cappuccino, documentaries, dark chocolate, and farmers markets! My love for babies started at a very young age - my mother tells me that I would beeline towards any baby we saw in public starting at the age of 2! I have always wanted a big family and found the birth process completely fascinating.
Birth to me is a constant amazing reminder of our creator God. I am so excited to be doing what I am truly passionate about and have been called to do. I help families have the birth that they dream of by providing you with non-stop support, providing you with tools and empowerment, education, encouragement, and security in your birthing decisions.
Psalms 127:3 – “Children are a blessing from the Lord; the fruit of the womb a reward.” Don’t fret over the changes, the upcoming sacrifices, but rather rejoice in the gift and the Giver!
