Hello! My name is Katie Nyberg, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to join the Des Moines Moms Blog writing team! Here is a little bit about my family and me.
I have two energetic boys, Ben (almost 9) and Will (5), and one huge dog, Barkley (almost 10). We love doing science experiments, playing outside as much as possible, and watching movies together.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Wes. He has been a chiropractor and owner of Waukee Wellness & Chirorpactic for the past eight years. We are both small business owners focused on health and enjoy serving our community. You will likely see us at community events or eating at local restaurants on our date nights! We are both from the Des Moines area (currently living in Ankeny) and are blessed to have a large, wonderful extended family to help us raise our boys.
I once heard a quote saying it is important to always have a hobby with your hands, and I find a lot of truth in that. I am the daughter of a very talented seamstress, and I love sewing simple projects. I also love making home décor and gifts for others—as long as they are easy! I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes when I get to be creative. Reading and piano-playing are my favorite ways to relax. I am also blessed to be a part of a ladies’ Bible study group as well as a couples’ small group through our church.
I graduated from UNI (Go Panthers!) and taught 5th grade through my 20s. In this season on life, I’ve followed my passion for birth and motherhood. I now own my own birth and postpartum doula business, The Iowa Baby Lady, LLC. My goal is simple: I want to help build confidence in women through their childbearing years. I’ve learned that there are many ways to support women in our community, and there is certainly no one right way! While I stay current on best practices and evidence based care related to motherhood, my perspective is simply unbiased support.
