Atika Hagen, Postpartum Doula
Atika is a certified Postpartum Doula with Bridgetown Baby, and also a private practice birth doula. As the daughter of a midwife, some of her first memories are of babies making their entry into the world. She enjoys cultivating safe space for women and their partners as their families expand to welcome additional members. Atika has always been drawn to working with people and finds her best self when helping others. She is genuine and curious, always wanting to support families in ways that are authentic and meaningful.
Atika also trained as an artist and earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts in photography and book arts at Oregon College of Art and Craft. Her work is an extension of this orientation, combining an attention to detail and an appreciation of the beauty of life in all its forms, from the mundane to the transcendent.
She is the mother of two amazing boys who do a great job of keeping her on her toes. When not working, she can be found at the climbing gym, practicing the ukulele, or adventuring with her family through the many parks and puddles in Portland.
