Charlotte Holgersen

Hello, I was born and raised in northern California. I have three wonderful children and a supportive husband of 10 yrs. As a child, I participated in many blessing ways in my community, and had the honor of witnessing and contributing in the act of supporting pregnant women through their pregnancy, labor, birth, and transition into motherhood. The innate feeling of supporting women grew within me, I am here to help empower you. Birth is beautiful, inspiring, hard work, and life changing. The support I provide is to encourage women to trust in their bodies and the birth process. As a doula service provider, I help women stay strong and calm during birth. I will offer comfort measures, coping techniques, and constant presence with an objective and unbiased viewpoint to help you create a satisfying birth experience. My goal as your doula is to be completely present for your birth experience; physically, emotionally, and energetically. I will ensure that your choices and experiences are honored.

During your postpartum time I will continue to provide physical, emotional, spiritual support, and guidance to you and your family. Working with the parents I will assist in making the transition into parenthood, breastfeeding, and family relationships easier. I will not take over infant care, but support and assist the mother and family in learning about newborn, self, and family care.

My education consists of:

  • Certification through the Doula Alliance

  • 1in7 Supporting Postpartum Women with Mood and Anxiety Disorders

  • A.A Degree in psychology

  • B.A Degree in Elementary Education & teaching credential

  • Reiki Practitioner in the Usui System of Natural Healing

  • NeurOptimal Neurofeedback Trainer @ Humboldt Brain Harmony

 

 Other services I offer:

  1. NeurOptimal neurofeedback is a safe and non-invasive way to de-stress during pregnancy. Learning that you are pregnant can be a time of great joy and excitement, and also a time of high anxiety and stress. Please visit www.HumboldtBrainHarmony.com to read more on the benefits of training with NeurOptimal neurofeedback.

 

  1. Reiki (ray-key) is a gentle Japanese hands-on-healing technique. It works by rebalancing the body’s energy flow. Reiki treatment can be effective for relaxation, pain management, anxiety, depression, soothing digestive imbalances, removing energetic blocks and enhanced well-being.
