About Me

“Doula” translated from the original Greek language means a woman who serves. That’s exactly what I aspire to do for new mothers.

My name is Katie Newby and I am the owner of Newby Nurturing. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for taking care of children. As the oldest of three siblings and eleven cousins, I was often asked to babysit and with that, my love for nurturing continued to grow. While my husband was stationed in Japan with the Marine Corps, I kept myself busy as a live-in nanny, while also caring for our beautiful new baby. During that time, I grew to understand the importance of having a loving support system during the post-natal period and early days of parenthood. In 2014, I discovered the role of a Postpartum Doula and quickly realized I was called to support women during this sacred phase of their lives. I have since provided overnight postpartum care and breastfeeding education to over eighty families. I am a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist as well and am currently pursuing my IBCLC credentials to further my knowledge in improving maternal and infant health. It brings me joy to help mothers navigate this “rite of passage” and I look forward to offering non-judgmental support and a comforting presence to more new moms in the Houston area. Feel free to reach out any time for more information on how I can assist you!

Reviews from Past Clients

★★★★★

Katie worked for me from the time my daughter was 1 month old to 6 months old. She had severe health problems and required 24 hour care. It was an extremely stressful time in my life and Katie was the ONLY person besides immediate family I trusted with my daughter. Katie was a Godsend. She was always on time, thoroughly engaged, paid close attention to every instruction, was compassionate and loving to my daughter, and provided me with excellent notes to review in the morning. I knew she was in good hands when she was with Katie and that was the only reason I was able to function during that time. Katie took EXCELLENT care of her. In addition, Katie gave me numerous tips and suggestions to help both my daughter and myself. I fully recommend Katie for work with newborns and children of all ages. I fully recommend Katie for any job that she desires. She is a responsible, trustworthy, loving person.

Katie was a great newborn care specialist. She helped us at night only. She was always on time. She was willing to follow our instructions - whether it be to be in the room with the baby or to stay out of the room unless she woke up. We never heard our little one crying. Katie was always able to address her needs without disturbing us. She always took very detailed notes that we received in the morning so I was able to flow right into the daytime routine. I would highly recommend Katie!
