Katherine Ward

Massage Therapist - Birth & Postpartum Doula - Childbirth Educator

Hi, I’m Katherine!

I’m an Iowa Girl and self proclaimed Birth n’ Baby Junkie. I’ve been fascinated by birth since I was little. I told my mom I wanted to be a “baby doctor” (OB) and have 20 kids of my own when I grew up. While those plans have certainly changed, I am still passionate about caring for moms and their new babies!

Hi, I’m Katherine!

I’m an Iowa Girl and self proclaimed Birth n’ Baby Junkie. I’ve been fascinated by birth since I was little. I told my mom I wanted to be a “baby doctor” (OB) and have 20 kids of my own when I grew up. While those plans have certainly changed, I am still passionate about caring for moms and their new babies!
I completed my birth doula training and began attending births in 2015. In 2019, I trained as a postpartum doula and began my massage therapy studies at Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School. There I studied many massage therapy modalities including prenatal, infant, aromatherapy, acupressure, and myofascial work.
During pregnancy and postpartum with my daughter, I experienced first-hand the incredible highs and lows of new motherhood. Since then, I’ve become even more inspired to serve women as they walk the journey. Whether it be on my table, in labor, or in your home with your new baby, I’m here for you and I can’t wait to meet you!
Outside of birth & babies, I enjoy spending time with my electrician & carpenter husband, Connor, and busy little girl, Remi. We love dancing (country or swing) and cooking up tasty eats for entertaining our friends.

My 90-minute prenatal massage with Katherine was downright heavenly. She has a true gift. I felt safe and relaxed in her space. Looking forward to my next one next month!

Katherine is so calm, friendly, and excellent at what she does. She made sure I was comfortable the entire time and did a great job alleviating my late-pregnancy aches and pains. Thank you Katherine!

I thoroughly enjoyed my massage experience. Katherine was so knowledgeable and helpful. I was about 3 weeks postpartum after a c-section and she did a wonderful job of addressing my concerns and educating me on how to best care for my scar tissue.

I'm currently expecting and have a big baby belly. It was amazing to be able to lie on my front thanks to the adjustable massage table making room for my belly! Of course Katherine is amazing and I left feeling relaxed and refreshed!
