Welcome to Simple Natural Mama ~ the home for Christian moms who like things simple and natural.
I am so glad you are here! While we are getting to know each other...
My name is Katherine Newsom, MCD, MCPD, and I run Simple Natural Mama, a home for my writing and doula business.
As a trained birth and postpartum doula, I've learned and studied a lot about birth - And I am here to share that wealth of knowledge with you! Education is so important in any season you are facing, as well as learning to be your own advocate for your own care, or finding other professionals who can fill that role as advocate for you --- This is where a doula comes in!
I do not take this lightly, and am honored you are considering me as your doula. I serve mothers and families in the Seabrook/League City/Webster area of the gulf coast of Houston, Texas; I also now offer Virtual Doula & Coaching Services - meeting you wherever you may live! - which you can read more about here.
Per my training and credentials, I provide the following services to expecting and new mamas:
- Birth Doula
- Postpartum Doula
- Virtual Doula & Coaching
- Childbirth Education
- Breastfeeding (Lactation) Education
- Postpartum Belly Binding
- Herbal Consultation

Chosen: Birth + Faith Through A Doula Lens, is coming in BOOK FORM to a retailer near you!
Birth isn’t something that just happens to you, rather, it is an invitation from God to bend your heart toward Him as He creates new life within you. Chosen is written to redeem the fear-based cultural understanding of labor and replace it with purpose and truth, rooted in God’s word; Because of Christ, you truly can celebrate your part in God’s design and embrace your purpose in the season – no matter the type of birth.
In Chosen, we will explore:
+ what it means to be chosen for childbirth
+ why this transforms your understanding and experience of pregnancy, labor, and postpartum
+ how knowing this invites you to share your story
+ what effect this has on your experiences through loss and grief
+ why this understanding causes you to lean into your village
+ how all of this affects your understanding of birth in the Bible and today
The concept of birth in the biblical narrative is a powerful illustration which can transform your view of God and shed light on how He dwells within and around us; how He chooses you, and how this enriches your views on your own birth experiences and faith.
