Northwest Suburban Doula is Kirsten Ludwig.  Kirsten is a compassionate, supportive, trustworthy, and objective woman.  Her family includes her husband, whom she has known since high-school, two crazy little boys, and a crested gecko named Big Bad Khengue.  She holds a MS in veterinary biosciences, with a focus on developmental biology, but most recently worked in a virology lab at Rosalind Franklin University.  She left science for doula work after feeling overwhelmed and unsupported during her own postpartum periods.  She would like nothing more than for each family to feel confident and encouraged as they embark upon the thrilling adventure that is parenthood.
