“It was so wonderful being there, Keya! Such great energy and inspiring group! Looking forward to the next ones!”
“Keya met all of my expectations and more as my birth doula! She was extremely thorough, attentive and supportive. I don’t think I could have asked for a better doula! She was able to remain calm when I was freaking out and very emotional. She stayed grounded amongst all the chaos in our home. She was peaceful and kind and present. She was able to recognize when I needed her to stay but was unable to articulate it myself and that truly exceeded my expectation. She pushed me gently when I needed pushing and was very accepting when I needed space. Keya has amazing intuition and such a loving energy!”
“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!”
“Keya is excellent at providing detailed explanations about what to expect during pregnancy, labor, and after labor. It was so refreshing to have her as my doula because she obviously tailors services based on each family’s needs. Not to mention I found her yoga classes to be invaluable as she teaches with such care and wisdom. Keya is very confident, observant, and I feel she reads people well. It also helps that she has two children of her own and was so open to share what has and has not worked for her. During the birth, I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Keya! In fact, I vividly remember one moment when she stepped off to the side and I yelled ‘Keya, where are you!’ lol – labor was intense and there were moments I didn’t think I’d be able to continue. But there she was with that superwoman shirt, breathing and chanting with me, helping me ‘breathe my baby down’ and helping me understand I could do it. I remember another moment when we all first arrived at the birth center. I was sitting in the car waiting for a contraction to pass. Keya came up and greeted me in such a gentle way, it made me feel at ease. As intense as things became, I never felt like she was unsure of what to do. She’s extremely confident, yet humble and I believe that builds trust and confidence in clients. It’s obvious that Keya not only loves what she does but that she’s found her gift. And I thank her for blessing us mamas with that gift! After the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Keya observed my breastfeed latch and provided many helpful tips. I felt pretty clueless days after giving birth, so her follow-up after birth, the visit, the placenta pill delivery, and the phone calls really made me feel good. Each and every visit, phone conversation, and text exchange was so pleasant and enjoyable for me. I always felt comfortable sharing my challenges and happy moments with Keya. I never felt like I was just a ‘client’, but instead a good friend or family member. All of my questions and needs were met and she definitely exceeded my expectations of what I thought a doula would do (i.e., detailed overview of vaccines, actually practicing comfort measures, providing in-depth explanations, providing your amazon registry, recommending classes, following-up). If we decide to have another little one, Keya is my only choice!”
“Keya Merah Nkonoki is the most knowledgeable, loving pregnancy and postpartum yoga teacher I’ve encountered. Being a mother two times over, her instincts with pregnancy yoga are incredible. As a result of my yoga practice with Keya during my pregnancy, my baby’s natural birth was quick, smooth and without complications. I highly recommend Keya Merah Nkonoki!”
“From the moment Keya arrived at my door for our introductory meeting, I knew I wanted her with me and my husband as part of our childbirth journey. She has an incredible energy and personality that are warm and engaging. Her prenatal yoga classes were the best yoga classes I’d ever experienced–not just “good for prenatal yoga”, but best yoga classes, period. She knows her stuff and is a wonderful teacher and guide. During the labor, she was a true gift. She gave gentle, yet confident suggestions that helped my labor progress and helped manage the pain; she anticipated my needs and gave me just what I needed exactly when I needed it (shout out to the TENS unit!!); she respected my desires and my energy, flowing with my ever-changing moods; she stepped up and stepped back when needed, to allow my mother and husband to have a role; she celebrated me and my beautiful little bugaboo when the labor was over… In a word, she was magical. I truly could not have had such a beautiful and successful birth experience were it not for her.”
“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.”
“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.”
