Childbirth & Postpartum Educator
"I am passionate about connecting with moms, both new and experienced, and helping them in this wonderfully rewarding and challenging transition through Motherhood."
After experiencing the two beautiful births of her daughters, followed by the use of placenta encapsulation, she became interested in helping women attain these benefits. She soon became certified as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist and Birth Boot Camp Facilitator, as these approaches align with her holistic beliefs.
Kristie believes childbirth to be one of the most empowering and supernatural experiences that a woman can ever take part in. She is excited for this opportunity to bring her knowledge and skills to the community of The Womb Room!
Kristie Graybill is originally from Louisiana, but now considers Baltimore her home. She has spent the last 9 years teaching Language Arts to 5th graders in Baltimore.
