“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.”
“I went to Keya’s prenatal yoga class every weekend from about 22 weeks until I gave birth. It was a fantastic way to give myself some time to focus on myself and my baby, keep my body healthy, prepare for the birth and, a bonus, meet other soon to be moms. Keya is a fantastic teacher, has the most amazing energy and is wonderfully inclusive. I felt really lucky to have found her – her class made my pregnancy so enjoyable and I actually went to her Baby and Me Yoga class the second I was cleared by the doctor. My husband and I also attended her birthing Partners At Om PLAYSHOP, which was a few hours of breathing, stretching, massage techniques for both of us to use during the labor process. We both found it really fun, and incredibly helpful. No one can prepare you for birth, but we used the techniques and it allowed us to stay calm, centered and focused during what could be a very stressful time. Can’t say enough positive things about Keya and her class, and I am excited to see her every week during my next pregnancy.”
“Through two pregnancies, Keya has been an inspirational and calming figure, as my prenatal yoga instructor. I started going to her prenatal class in 2009 and found her to be incredibly helpful for my changing and growing body. She always guided me through each class, achieving a more positive and excited outcome. I enjoyed my pregnancies even more because of her. She is always helping pregnant women connect with one another, and has outstanding advice for preparing to manage labor and birth. She’s extremely knowledgeable with years of experience and I’d highly recommend her yoga classes as well as her doula services.”
“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 is an amazing instructor! I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have taken prenatal yoga with several instructors and Keya is by far my favorite! I go to her classes in Culver City and Mar Vista and enjoy every minute of the experience! She is very hands on and helps you with the poses, her classes are perfect for any level of fitness and at any stage of pregnancy. She is great about modifying the poses so you don’t feel intimidated if you’re not quite the yogi you used to be pre-pregnancy. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere.“
“Do you need a doula? Yes, yes, and yes! Especially if you don’t have another woman supporting you in the birthing room. Your husband can only support you so much when they don’t really know what you’re going through. Is it worth the money? Absolutely, especially if you can’t afford a midwife and have to go with whatever your insurance covers. Having a doula gives you the support you need in a medicalized birth setting. Do you need Keya as your doula? A thousand times yes!!!! Why? She is extremely professional. She will support you in ways you didn’t know you needed without you having to ask. This was my second childbirth and I still hired Keya because I really wanted an unmedicated birth and I knew I needed female support to get there. Unfortunately, things didn’t go my way and after a very long labor I ended up with an emergency c-section. The experience would have been much more stressful and scary without Keya there to support me. She helped me process my feelings about the loss of my ideal birth plan. I also had many stressful things happening in my life during my pregnancy and she kept me focused and grounded so I could stay calm for my baby’s health. My only complaint about Keya is that I loved her too much! Lol after our last visit it was like I lost a friend. I honestly wish she did even more postpartum support because she becomes part of your life and you will miss talking to her.”
“Keya was beyond helpful and supportive. She continually spent extra time with us in order to address all of our areas of concern with such care and kindness. Due to her calming presence, I went into my birth with much more confidence and security. She allowed me to envision the kind of birth I hoped to have, while also adopting a flexible attitude. Once the time of my birth arrived I was both calm and excited about the arrival of our baby. (It is important to note that a few months prior I was completely terrified of birth as I contemplated an elective c-section to avoid labor anxiety. There is absolutely no way I could have conquered this fear without Keya. Once she arrived at my labor she provided exactly the motivation I needed in order to push myself through the increasing discomfort and exhaustion. Her balance between gentle nurturing and persistent encouragement allowed me to make it further into my labor without medical intervention than I would on my own. Furthermore, she supported my partnership with my husband as we became closer through my labor. We are both so grateful for her presence at our birth and we are planning to use her for our second birth this February. Finally, Keya is an incredible prenatal yoga teacher and I attribute her very effective kegal regimen to my very short push time. Thank you, Keya!”
“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.”
“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!”
“Question: Can this playshop substitute lamaze class?” — Answer: You definitely want to take a child-birth education class to learn the nuts and bolts of labor, however, many of these classes don’t have time to focus on comfort measures for labor in the way we do in our workshop.
