DWAN KATZ

Student Midwife

 

Dwan began her journey into the birth world way back in 2003, she just didn’t know it at the time. After enduring a years worth of infertility treatment, followed by a year-long IVF process, her beautiful twins arrived in 2005. Her struggle instilled a deep sense of empathy for all families dealing with infertility. Dwan decided to become a surrogate and was so moved by the experience, she did it twice! Both surrogacies produced a set of twins for two separate families! She loves seeing the kids grow up, and they will be a part of her family forever. Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the experience was the overwhelming joy she experienced watching the parents see their kids for the first time. That feeling has inspired and driven Dwan to become a birth and postpartum doula. She wanted to support and witness the birthing person find their power with the knowledge and confidence that comes with any birth process. 

 

Dwan is ready to move on to the next chapter by becoming a student midwife  working on completing her clinical experience and requirements for PEP through the North American Registry of Midwife to become a Certified Professional Midwife and Licensed Midwife (CPM,LM)
