My Professional Journey
Strength in Support
Hello ! I’m Catherine Meyer. I am a postpartum doula, breastfeeding specialist and certified yoga teacher.
In 2002, I realized a childhood dream by becoming a licensed state midwife, in France. I helped thousands of women, and their partner, and enjoyed the great privilege of delivering over 500 babies.
I relocated to the United States in 2008, landing in everybody’s favorite city, San Francisco, where I have been raising my three children.
In 2018 I became Certified Breastfeeding SpecialistTM with Lactation Education Resources.
Along the way I developed a strong yoga practice; it has given me an inner strength that grounds me in the present, taught me to live with compassion and awareness, and embrace life as it is.
In 2020, I earned my RYT-200 yoga teacher credentials at Haum, and have been trained in prenatal and postnatal yoga with Jane Austin.
Currently, I teach yoga at the Epiphany Center in San Francisco, a client-centered care for children, women, and families who are the most vulnerable in our society, and addiction treatment center.
I volunteered also at San Francisco General Hospital as a postpartum doula, and at Eviction Defense Collaborative. Those experiences gave me a new perspective on life and renewed my desire to dedicate myself to serving my community.
I am Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED trained and certified by the American Red Cross.
I am fully vaccinated .
I am fluent in French.
I stand for a safe access to quality, comprehensive and culturally-appropriate care for every mother.
I stand for maternal health and birth justice.
I stand for maternity care grounded in respect, dignity and human rights.
Please get in touch to set up an initial consultation. I look forward to meeting you.
