Carrie Klakeg, Licensed Massage Therapist and Doula

I have worked with many women throughout the childbearing year through massage and support for over ten years. After the birth of my son and postpartum experience I became trained as a Doula to provide even more support for mothers around the Twin Cities area. I have experience with high risk pregnancies and a vast knowledge of neonatal abnormalities and syndromes. My goal is to help women with high risk pregnancies reclaim their birth and postpartum journeys.

Let my wings help bridge the gap from the sterile medical world to your holistic nurturing world. 


Every family is unique, so I offer a variety of doula and massage services personalized for each birthing experience. Regardless of what you choose, we will dive into your beliefs and expectations around labor and birth. Together, we will explore your physical and emotional strengths and limitations to ensure you’re completely prepared. Please get in touch to learn more about the various services that I offer.

Birthing Support

Get extra personal support throughout the entirety of your birthing journey. As a Doula, I promise to offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and after birth. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer any support needed. For those who are high risk, I can tag along to some of your appointments to help you navigate through all the medical jargan and overwhelming procedures.

Postpartum Support

From our initial meeting all the way through your pregnancy and delivery, I take the time to get to know you, your concerns and your needs. I’m always available to contact by phone/email throughout and will provide everything you require to make sure your experience is as calm and positive as possible

Some things that can be included:

Lactation support, nutrition support for mom, light cleaning and laundry, and help with any baby needs to allow mom to fully recover and get some well deserved rest. 

Baby's Grasp

Massage Therapy

After beginning our relationship with a meet and greet, as your doula I am committed to your health and the wellbeing of your growing family. I believe that massage is an important part of this during pregnancy and in your postpartum stage. I like to include two prenatal massages and two postpartum to provide extra support not only emotionally, but physically throughout your childbearing year.

Infant Massage Instruction

Group or one-on-one classes to encourage bonding between you and your baby. 
Infant massage helps encourage sleep and relaxation for baby. It has also been shown to improve colic and gas.


Below are some of the experiences real clients have had with Carrie Klakeg of Nurtured Phoenix.

Emily D.

“If you are looking for a doula with a great deal of knowledge and experience in the medical field (she has worked in the surgery unit of both Children's Hospital and the Mother Baby Center at Abbott Northwestern) and in whole body wellness (Carrie is also a great masseuse!), I strongly recommend Carrie Klakeg. Carrie is a supportive and knowledgeable doula. She stayed overnight in the hospital with me the first two nights after my son was born. Because Carrie was there, I felt comfortable getting some much needed sleep. It was also helpful to have someone to answer my questions that came up, including getting help with breastfeeding and pumping.

Carrie is extremely easy to converse with. I always felt like I was able to be completely honest with her, and I felt like she would do the same for me. She felt like a really supportive friend who was also very knowledgeable! Because of her medical background, she was also able to give me insight on some medical issues I had in the hospital. Furthermore, in our conversations before the birth of my son, she talked me through the c-section process. Through these conversations, she eased my concerns. I am so grateful that Carrie was my doula. The peace of mind she gave me both going into my planned c-section delivery and on those first few difficult nights was priceless.”
