About Me

My name is Kathy Rothwell. I am a cisgender, queer, white female. My pronouns are she/her. I have been a parent since 2006, and I have three children. I believe that humans are not meant to live in isolation. We need community, and support after birth and beyond.

I am a certified lactation educator and counselor, babywearing educator, and postpartum doula providing support to all birthing people in the greater Long Beach area. I have been supporting families in various modalities since 2008.

Some of my trainings and experience include:

Lactation educator and counselor at University of California San Diego

Babywearing Educator with the Center for Babywearing Studies

Founding member of Babywearing Long Beach – a community based babywearing group.

Postpartum doula with Cornerstone Doula Trainings

When I’m not providing support to postpartum families, you can find me homeschooling my kids, traveling with my family, and park hopping at Disneyland.

I’m a proud member of the LGBTQIA community, and I support families of all gender, sexualities, and races.
