Posted on: November 9, 2020 | Business, Community, Labor Doulas, Postpartum Doulas, VFD Team

As the agency owner of Vegas Family Doulas, I hold high standards in how VFD is represented in the community. There are training/educational requirements to become a part of the VFD team. Additionally, there are ethical and professional standards that we hold each of our doulas accountable to. I’m excited that I have the pleasure to introduce you to the professional team of doulas that represent the Vegas Family Doulas team, and I would like to introduce you to Kathleen Passalacqua. 

“Thank you for your help! I feel so much better after learning stuff today and resting. Thank you so much!” -VFD client supported by Kathleen

Kathleen Passalacqua has been a team member of Vegas Family Doulas since becoming a ProDoula certified doula. As a doula with Vegas Family Doulas, Kathleen jumped right into supporting her first clients shortly after certifying. Since then, she has continuously supported families through their postpartum experiences, and has gained special expertise with premature newborns. Kathleen’s passion for being in the early trench’s of postpartum has built up confidence in her clients, and provides a safe and nurturing environment in their presence.

Kathleen grew up in San Franciso, CA. She received her Bachelor’s of Science in Fashion Merchandising from San Francisco State University in 2005, and became a Certified Postpartum and Infant Care Doula in 2019. Kathleen enjoys the schedule flexibility of working with a team, and advises her clients ‘that you can never have too much help or support when it comes to your postpartum recovery. My goal is to not be in the way, but to help show {your personal support team} how to be able to help you too!’

“You can never have too much help or support when it comes to your postpartum recovery…” -Kathleen P. Certified Doula

Kathleen Passalacqua is a married mother of two school-aged children, and loved her journey of being pregnant. Being outdoors is a form of self-care for Kathleen. She does so by getting outside to bike, run, and hike; and trips to Mount Charleston and Red Rock are a part of her family’s regular outings. Kathleen also indulges in traveling and a good vacation. With a goal to travel somewhere new every year with her family. When Kathleen is not busy with work/mom/wife/life balances, she likes to spend her time sweating it out with a good workout at TruFusion. Or find her with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and binging on Netflix and reality shows.

Having Kathleen on the team has been music to my soul. Her smile is infectious and her delivery of support is a perfect balance of “you got this” and “wait a minute, I got you”. She represents Vegas Family Doulas with poise, professionalism, and practicality.

We’d love to have Kathleen support YOU!
