Birth Doula Consultation (phone/video)
This consultation is for couples curious about having a doula. Recommend watching the "Do You Doula" video on the Home page prior to our meeting. We will meet and discuss your birth preferences, answer any questions, and see if we are a good fit for each other.
“Really great experience! The couples yoga was a treat and not something we have ever done before. To be honest, my husband thought it was going to be super long and boring, but he ended up enjoying it a lot. We plan to use the Lunging (together), rebozo scarf, hip squeeze, tailbone push, ball rolling, and heating pad for our labors. We had a small flood in our house before the workshop, so we came into the class frazzled, but were pretty happy and connected by the end of it. Everything that was presented was really valuable!”
“I rarely do yelp reviews, but when the services provided are beyond exceptional, I feel compelled. Keya provided an immeasurable support by being my doula! Without Keya, I would not have had the natural birth that I dreamed of. I will always be grateful for the knowledge, emotional support, massages, aromatherapy, and positive energy that Keya provided.”
“I’ll write a more in depth review when I have more time but wanted to say that Keya is absolutely gifted as a doula. She stepped in at the last minute (literally when I was having contractions) when our doula couldn’t make it, and I was thrilled she could come as I’d loved her prenatal yoga classes. She was there for us every step of the way through what turned into a three day labor. She kept us from heading to the hospital way too early with calming pain relief techniques at home, and her calm confidence and nonjudgemental, very supportive nature were so comforting to us and made for a harmonious birth team at the hospital. She had no shortage of solutions for helping me through the pain and her yoga and rebozo techniques were lifesavers. We were so grateful to have her there for us. I strongly recommend her as a doula and prenatal yoga teacher- she’s highly professional and her expertise is balanced with compassion and support. She’s a natural caregiver and helped us avoid a c-section and find inner strength we didn’t know we had.”
“Keya is a great doula! Thorough, patient and a good balance between professional and warm, empowering and advisory. She explained things in a rational way and always showed up just a minute or two early. She was a skilled advocate for me at the hospital. She was kind, composed and assertive when making requests and communicating my needs. I appreciated that I could also go to her yoga classes and have a more holistic relationship. After the birth, she visited me bearing lactation cookies and juice. She visited again a couple of weeks later to teach me and my husband infant massage. It was generous and we are grateful to have met her.”
“Excellent. I am so indebted to your expertise and calm. And can’t thank you enough for helping me at my most vulnerable. From pressure on my sacrum to acting as an advocate at the hospital, your support was tremendous. You helped us make a lot of decisions, that were very stressful for us, and always listened to our desires without judgment. My son’s birth didn’t go as planned from the beginning because I needed to be induced, but you helped me stay positive and focused, In the end, I didn’t feel angry at the circumstances, but rather grateful that my husband, you, and the nurses supported my best efforts and empathized with me. My husband was also extremely thankful for your guidance in terms of next steps in the process and in terms of comfort measures.”
“At our prenatal visits you were very warm and easy to talk to also very informative. As far as Birth goes, I could not have done it without you nor do I even want to imagine not having you there! You just made it all better. I had full trust in you and your abilities to sooth me during contractions and the standing with bent knees with you was a definite tool that helped me. I loved the aromatherapy and all the other extras as well. Your very nurturing and a true professional. Thank you for staying as long as you did to make sure our little wild man was ok.“
“I took many different prenatal yoga classes when I was pregnant and my favorite by far was Keya’s classes. I love Keya and looked forward to her classes every week; I wish that she had daily classes! They felt soooo good on my pregnant body and helped keep my pregnant mind peaceful and at ease. Keya is also a doula and imparts knowledge that will help with birth and postpartum during class. She is an amazing spirit and force and you would be lucky to have her guidance and loving support for your birth.”
All of these methods work, but what your doctor may not tell you… is there is new research… showing that Essential Fatty Acids found in fish oil, flax seed oil, walnuts and fish (salmon and tuna) support better sleep patterns in children and babes.
