Kindness Matters

Meet Erika Whittaker

Post-Surgery Caregiver and Postpartum Doula

Hi, I'm Erika Whittaker, and I love caring for people. It's what I do best and enjoy the most. Especially helping women get back on their feet as quickly and safely as possible after they encounter setbacks or life changes. 

As a post-surgery caregiver, I take care of all your other needs, so that you can concentrate on healing only.

As a postpartum doula, I help new parents transition gently and confidently into life with a baby.

I am an experienced, confident, knowledgable, and compassionate woman who believes that given the right conditions and environment,

our bodies can heal themselves.  I help create this "right environment" by taking care of my clients' needs so her body can use all its energy on healing. 

Helping, Caring, Healing, Teaching have always been some of my real passions; whether that was as a girl growing up in Austria as the 7th of 10 children, a world-class athlete who had to heal from many injuries and surgeries, a coach and mentor to young children, an exercise teacher,   a mountain guide to help people achieve their dreams and return home safely, a mother to two incredible children, a manager and owner of multiple businesses,
