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.
“We Loved the PLAYSHOP! It was a perfect balance between practical theory and fun. We have been to another labor class which we didn’t enjoy very much – it felt outdated and out of touch. Your class was really informative about the stages of labor, exactly what happens and useful tips on how to cope. You gave really helpful advice and guidance to partners in a way that was inclusive and showed just how important and influential that support role is. We also both really enjoyed all the great massage and comfort tips – especially the one with the rebozo sheet. I’m very lucky to have a supportive and engaged husband. The other labor class we attended treated the partners like they were clueless and a bit useless. It didn’t speak to how we are as a couple. We walked away from your class feeling even more connected and like a strong team.”
“Keya is simply magical. I’ve taken her yoga class and was so impressed by her presence and her knowledge of the pregnant body that I asked her to be my doula. Keya was always very professional – always quick to respond with all the information that we needed. Our pre birth meetings were super helpful and Keya was full of resources. Not only did she give us a list of things to consider but she hyperlinked everything to Amazon so that it was easy for us to get anything that would be helpful. In addition – she gave us some simple resources to read and give us more information if we needed it. During the birth we had to change gears several times and at each stage she helped me and my husband adjust and refocus. Keya served as a calm and steady presence through what was a very long and difficult birth. When it was time to deliver she helped me understand all that was going on around me and gave me full support. She also came by postpartum and gave me much needed advice on breastfeeding and a range of other things. Working with Keya was one of the best decisions my husband and I made – she is exactly the kind of person you want standing by your side as your little one makes their way into the world!”
“Keya was exceptional for us! She really helped make us aware of my body, and the whole process for delivering a baby and what it entails. I always felt relaxed, confident and trusted in the knowledge you provided both my husband and I. Keya always gave us several different options on topics we had concerns about regarding the baby/delivery/vaccinations/etc. She had a clear understanding of our intention and helped make sure it was fulfilled. With Keya’s support and our wonderful OB: Dr. Bayati, we were able to have a completely natural birth (no epidural) within the hospital. We stayed at home as long as possible and arrived at the hospital just in time to push our baby out! She really is just wonderful!”
“Your support was so incredibly helpful – both in preparing us for what was coming, educating us in a way that my OB didn’t, and helping to keep me out of the hospital for most of my labor! I would have been at UCLA on petocin and an epidural from 5am that Sunday morning until the baby came. Also – your knowledge of what was going on with my body during labor was super helpful and very calming. I felt safe.”
“Keya was essential support for me during my pregnancy. I discovered her by chance when she was teaching pre-natal yoga in Culver City, simply because it was close to my house. I followed her to various studios, where her classes gave me the empowerment I needed at the end of my pregnancy. I wound up getting a lactation consultant through my insurance which made sense for me financially, but I always had in the back of my head that a postpartum lactation consultation session with Keya was something I would invest in should the need arise. She is a wonderful and nurturing resource to incorporate into your pregnancy any way you can.”
“It was so wonderful being there, Keya! Such great energy and inspiring group! Looking forward to the next ones!”
“My husband and I went to Keya’s Partners At Om PLAYSHOP about a month ago, and it was absolutely amazing!!! Keya is a real professional who explains everything in a simple way, makes everyone feel comfortable adapting exercises and answering all the questions. Keya has a lot of experience, so she explained all of our questions and concerns regarding birth preparation, delivery, pair exercises during contractions, breath techniques during delivery, etc. As she worked as a doula in many places she gave all the couples useful feedback and recommendations about birth places they chose for delivery. In our case we weren’t happy about our obstetrician, so she helped us with another one in the same hospital and now we are super happy with the new one! Moreover, Keya is such a positive-energy person that there are no chances you won’t like her classes (including partners!) or leave them with doubts. She promises 100% but gives you 1000%! It’s a pity I found Keya just now, I wish I find her on my 1st-2nd trimester to have a chance to visit more yoga classes and workshops with her. Thank you, Keya, from me and my husband for such a fantastic experience! Absolutely recommend!”
Here is the calling. The opportunity to move through the walls we build inside that block us from our blessings.
