Ask The Midwife
It can be frustrating to feel rushed during your healthcare visit. You wait weeks to even get an appointment followed by hours in the waiting room, then are given a 5-10 minute appointment that leaves no time to ask questions! When you turn to Google, you are only left more confused and scared than when you left your provider's office. Well enough is enough. I'm Katrina, your virtual Midwife, here to answer your healthcare questions and provide clarity on different women's health topics.
Do you have a burning question that cannot wait until your next in person visit? Would you like more information on birth control, preparing for pregnancy, trying to conceive, dealing with infertility, or vaginal health? I am now offering virtual "Ask The Midwife" consults! This is your opportunity to receive one-on-one and thorough health education and counseling. This is not a health visit where I will assess, diagnose, and/or prescribe. However, this is a way for me to continue to empower women through personalized health education and providing facts.
Let's connect and journey together towards health literacy and optimal health goals! Sessions are for 30 minutes to ensure all questions are answered.
My journey to Midwifery began at Johns Hopkins University, where I worked as a doula for low-income and refugee women while receiving my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Alarmed at the maternal health disparities plaguing our nation, I decided to become a Midwife in order to address these issues from the front lines. I received my Master of Science in Nursing with a specialty in Midwifery from Emory University.
Additionally, I studied public health to better understand the causes, as well as solutions for the frightening inequalities present in health care. I make it my mission to provide education and respect to women so that they feel empowered to take charge of their health and make informed decisions. I have served as a Midwife for the last 5 years and worked with women all over the world, including South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, India, and Haiti.
