Welcome!

Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Thank you for taking the time to check out my website!

First and foremost, I am a mom to two amazing kiddos. I realized my calling was to help families in their pregnancy, labor & postpartum journeys after hiring my own doula for the birth of my son.  I am a Certified Postpartum Doula and a trained Newborn Care Specialist. I am also a trained birth doula and am currently going through the certification process with DONA International. DONA International is the world’s first, largest and leading doula certifying organization. I have over 10 years of experience caring for infants and children. I have firsthand knowledge of Cesarean birth/recovery, VBAC birth/recovery as well as exclusively pumping, supplementing, bottle-feeding and the trials and tribulations of breastfeeding. I am passionate about helping and advocating for moms who want to breastfeed and have VBAC births. My goal is to help women, their babies and families so they can easily and successfully navigate through pregnancy, labor and their fourth trimester.

So my experience with Doula Kim has just come to an end and to say I’m sad is an understatement. I am a mother of three, my youngest being 1 month and I had a c-section. I have a hard time asking for help, especially with things I feel are my responsibility but having her around was like having a friend over that just helps you get things done… And another adult to talk to. She helped so much no matter if she was helping me organize or just holding my baby so I could accomplish things, it was a huge help to have her around! She had a positive attitude, knowledgeable about things I asked her such at breastfeeding and pumping, willing to help with anything I needed, encouraging, supportive and nonjudgemental. Great experience!
