Raised in Middle Tennessee, K Torbet grew up fascinated with the seedlings in their grandfather's garden and the babies in the church nursery. Warm, intuitive, and flexible, they draw on a lifetime of caregiving experience to help each member of a growing family stay confident and grounded through the transformative season of pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. At the heart of K’s professional, nonjudgemental support lies their mission to keep their clients' priorities, vision, and comfort front and center so new parents can step into the next chapter feeling joyful, calm, and at home.
Since meeting their first niece in the late 90s, then attending their first birth at the age of 13, K’s lifelong curiosity and passion for all things childbearing and parenting has only continued to grow. Caregiving professionally for nearly two decades, they have supported Nashville-area families through the years and for the long haul as a birth doula, sibling doula, babysitter, nanny, postpartum doula, Newborn Care Specialist, and more. They continue their education by taking doula-related workshops and trainings and reading anything they can get their hands on.
In their spare time, K can be found pretending to live at the library, having picnics at their favorite swimming holes, generating knuckle tattoo ideas, and organizing their vast and unnecessary collection of office supplies. All of their karaoke selections are premeditated, and if they had a time machine, they’d ride that thing straight back to 1993 so they could relive Opryland in all its glory.
