I am Kristin Fannin, owner of To Be Free. My path towards care for the expecting and postnatal parent began in 2011 with enrollment into Mercy in Action's School of Midwifery. Since then, I have become a Birth Doula, receiving my training through ACBE (Academy of Certified Birth Educators), where I attended an intensive DONA-accredited workshop. I am a Certified Calm Birth Meditation Teacher. And I am a Certified Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness Specialist.

I believe every mother deserves a doula, and I set myself and my business to that standard. We welcome LGBTQ members and embrace a multicultural mindset when it comes to our care. 

I have extensive experience working in the pregnancy and birth field, through my own experiences as a mother and through the lives of my clients. I strive to provide a unique service here at To Be Free, where every mom under my care can quite literally be her free, pure, and raw self. Leaving  behind the facade, my desire is that you will join me in a pregnancy and birth journey that will leave you feeling shame-free, guilt-free, and free to be YOU. 

When I'm not assisting the needs of my clients, you can find me spending quality time with my husband and our three children. I'm the kind of girl that loves a rainy day & a cozy blanket, but also the sunshine & a nice long walk in nature, especially in the Spring or Fall. I love a good Netflix-binge, and am always finding ways to grow my knowledge-base on an array of subjects, primarily those of maternal care & maternal postpartum health (but I bet you guessed that one already). I'm a lover of people, coffee, and all the small things in life. I genuinely can't wait to get to know you.
