Hello, My name is Kratina Champaigne-Covington, I am a wife, mother of 2 beautiful daughters, and 2 fur babies. I enjoy growing fruits and vegetables in my home garden. I collect amazing house plants and I enjoy cooking. I became a doula in 2019 to combat the Infant Mortality Statistics in our community by sharing my expertise and supporting women. Listening to women's horror stories of how they were treated unfairly broke my heart and scared me. I am a mother of two girls, they may have children what if this happens to them? The thought of my babies not coming home was enough for me to become an advocate and learn how I could contribute even in a pandemic. My services are for all women who need them no matter age, race, or sexual preference.
I am very passionate about birth and want to touch as many families as I can. I want to empower women to take charge of their birth their way.
When a woman has access to trusted emotional, psychological, and practical support during labour and childbirth, evidence shows that both her experience of childbirth and her health outcomes can improve. And improved outcomes mean baby and mom are going home.
I am currently a volunteer at Florence Crittenton where I offer my doula services to young teen moms and educate them on how a doula can make a difference in a birth experience. It brings me such joy to expose them to a tradition that was formerly known as "catching babies".
