Krista Katainen-Midwife- Doula-Lactation Counselor

I am a midwife, doula, lactation counselor and mother of four wonderful children! I became a midwife 2011. I have been working in delivery room, postnatal-, newborn. and childrenscare. As a midwife I think I am openhearted, empathetic and good to cheer. I love to support and encourage towards a natural birth, but I always respect the choices an expecting mother does what comes to for example painrelief during birth. It feels so very special and is absolutely an honor to be able to be a part of the most sensitive, important and unike moments a family can experience. I love my job as a midwife – especially witness the miracle of birth. Since I have four own children I have also plenty of personal experience of pregnancies, births, breastfeeding and babytime.

2016 I studied to become a doula. I thought that as a midwifedoula I could be even more holistically present and support the whole family. As a midwifedoula I usually support the family during the pregnancy, during the whole birth and even after the birth.

The business called Kolmen Sydämen Kätilö was born in 2017. The name of the business comes from things that I am passionate about. The three things that are very close to my heart and fascinates me  are Pregnancy, Birth, and Baby time.

At my midwifery and doula practice you will receive professional care with a lot of empathy. You may get guidance or a co-traveller during pregnancy, birth and post natal period, including breastfeeding.

My goal is to help You and Your family to find your own resources and the joy of giving birth. You may get a birthing experience that empowers your whole life!

I live in Porvoo but i do home visits in areas like Loviisa, Sipoo, Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa.

”There are several reasons why I would recommend Krista for future parents. First of all, she takes the time: the time to meet you during the last weeks, the time to know you, understand what you might need, and explain also what will/might happen: she is a doula and also a midwife. Second, you have no idea how important it is to have someone with her expertise until you are there. The comfort, advice, even the company. And it’s great to have someone to call even before going to the hospital. Finally, and most important, Krista has many suggestions and solutions to try to make the mum as comfortable as possible, to take care of her: the hospital staff has limited time, Krista is there from beginning until the end.

And as a bonus, in my personal case, to have someone who could speak Swedish or Finnish ”on my behalf” during some of the most stressful moments was just great. I strongly recommend to any parents-to-be to, at least, have one meeting with her and learn what she can do for you during such an important time.”
