CHRISSY RADDATZ – Owner
BIRTH DOULA (DONA)
POSTPARTUM DOULA(DONA)

Chrissy Raddatz lives on a small farm out by Douglas.

I became a doula after the birth of my third child. I enjoy fishing and hunting with my boys and in the spring, you’ll find me in the garden or in the chicken coop.

If I had to say what my “doula style” is I’d have to say honest yet open. I believe the feelings surrounding birth that a women has a very strong and need to be listened to. I also know through experience that we need to be prepared for a variety of scenarios and I am trained and ready to go through those with you.

I look forward to meeting you and really do feel privileged to travel through the labor and delivery process with you.
