“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.”
“I attended Keya’s pre-natal yoga classes once a week for almost my entire pregnancy. She has such a great energy and I would have gone everyday if I could. I credit her classes with putting me in the right mind space to give birth and to help me work through all my anxieties. Plus, as my mobility decreased in trimester three, and everything started to hurt, I felt so much better after each class. After a lot of discussion, my husband and I decided against a doula, but for anyone looking for one, I think Keya would be the perfect choice.”
“It was so great! Very nice to be around other pregnant couples second time around and to do something new as a couple. Pretty much all of the comfort techniques and tips were helpful! It inspired me to use the ball more at home and to think about what foods to stock up at home on for labor. We both enjoyed doing the yoga portion together. Andrew asked if you do any couples yoga classes? He would love to do more yoga and he liked doing it with me and in a way were we got to connect with each other too. We could obviously go to any yoga class together but you would be great at teaching a special couples yoga class for both pregnancy/post pregnancy we would go!”
“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 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!”
“Your presence was so calming, amazing and helpful. I am so grateful you were there during a very intense, very long labor. You were so encouraging and supportive, but also absolutely able to go with the flow when I made my decisions. I felt like I was constantly supported even when after the 40th hour (!) the labor involved medical intervention. You made me feel confident and in charge of the process, when I could see how easily it could have felt chaotic and out of my control. I am hoping to have you in my life again for future support!”
