For those of you who don't know I am currently enrolled in an Ayurvedic Practitioner program through Yoga Veda Institute. And will be a NAMA certified practitioner after my clinical study.

Hello! Katie Metcalf, here.
Just wanted to stop by for a quick introduction for those who don’t know me!!!
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
I founded Little haven at the beginning of 2019. It has been a dream of mine to create a community that supports individual needs and growth in all aspects of life!

I enjoy “beeing” 🐝🐝🐝(See photo below☺️) a mom to my son, Noah. And I am so fortunate to be married to my best friend and #1 supporter, Jason.

Originally I hail from Cedar Rapids but moved to Johnson County in 2009 to finish my degree at Iowa. For 10 years I have been a massage therapist & energy healer in North Liberty. Most recently, I have started doing birth doula work in the area! Holistic wellness & Ayurveda are some of my biggest passions along with crocheting, sewing & crafting!

✨My dreams of this community space really started to transform after the birth of my son. I often felt like I was loosing part of myself to “mommyhood”. My spontaneity was non existent. I felt like I couldn’t leave the house unless circumstances were conducive to this new mommy lifestyle...it all felt so foreign. ✨I wasn’t able to attend workshops or have the same kind of social interactions that I had before having Noah. I was so happy to have created him but I also saw him as an inconvience to my personal growth. Talk about a mixed bag of emotions!!!

Little Haven is meant to be a place of cooperation & collaboration. For us all to feel like we are worthy enough to have enjoyment outside of our family life but not SEPARATE from them either. ✨My biggest wish for this community is that our littles grow up seeing us build healthy relationships, learn new things, and “fill our cups” - because you can’t pour from an empty cup!

✨By being here, I hope you find passions, interests, and education that lights up your soul. I hope that we all can connect on a deeper level to enrich our lives. I want people to live each day inspired to start the next✨

There are going to be big changes here in 2019...starting with re-branding this area of my business...

For now, this page will remain open and utilized as my main source of communication, but I want to be as transparent during this process as possible, so there is a strong likelihood that this page will be archived in the future and a new space for us to share will be developed.

I appreciate all of your support and likes, over the past few years and I look forward to continuing our connection in a more collaborative way! More to come...

Don’t worry...I didn’t forget about day 3 of #blowingupwithmartha challenge😂

Just throwing up another IG post from my doula page because postpartum visits are secretly my favorite things to schedule. All the fresh, new baby snuggles make me so happy...also remembering (more accurately “rewriting”) the events from their birthday is rewarding as well. I love when I help a happy babe, healthy momma, and hopeful family settle into their new normal👨‍👩‍👧

💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

Another sweet girl has made her arrival💕 Today, a week after the birth, we got to snuggle and reminisce about the wonderful gift of her birth. 👶🏼 The aspects that the family and I agreed were the least satisfying were interactions with certain individuals on the medical birth team. The guilt, shame, & unnecessary comments made by some staff left the parents (and frankly myself) bewildered and shocked. On more than one occasion during labor, I spent time reassuring momma that her choices were acceptable and should be respected...I’m not here to knock medical professionals...Try and have patience & be kind with each person.
In the United States, we have the freedom to CHOOSE what procedures, medicines, and staff we want as a part of our care. It should not matter if you agree with those choices🤷‍♀️Providers can recommend a plan of action but, ultimately, it should be the responsibility of the patient to decide what is best for them. 💕

During this conversation at MIT on "Health, Integrative Medicine, Yoga & Ayurveda", Dr. John Denninger asks Sadhguru how traditional Indian culture can help US achieve a culture of health.

Despite being the most affluent nation, Sadhguru explains, the people of the US are still struggling because we keep raising the bar for survival.

Sharing from my Transcending Birth page today... #blowingupwithmartha

What is a doula?
As a local Birth Doula, I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. I have completed training approved by DONA International. I draw on my professional training, knowledge and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with the staff to make sure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning and other techniques for comfort. I am independent and self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or hospital.

As a distant or online/virtual doula, I am still able to do most of those things listed above but most of the work is done prior to birth. I help mothers and families emotionally & spiritually prepare for the arrival of their little ones. Giving them tips & techniques to help cope with the intensity of labor. Educating them on their options during birth and their rights as new caregivers. I provide reiki (energy healing) services before, during, and after birth to energetically support momma & baby’s transitions into this new life. Plus so much more!!

Each pregnancy, family, and situation is unique so the services I provide reflect that. Customization for your particular needs is most important💜

Interested in talking more...Schedule a free consultation here: www.katiemmetcalf.as.me/consultation

I am a “online” doula. 🤰🏼 Helping women & families find their strength and confidence during this magical time. 🤰🏼 No matter where you are in this world, we can make your birth the best experience of you life.
