“One of the best things about my pregnancy experience was all the yoga and workshops that I did with Keya. I am so thankful for Keya’s support and guidance, and especially for her amazing prenatal yoga classes, which truly prepared my mind and body throughout my pregnancy! My doctors and nurses kept complimenting me and my husband for how calm and prepared we were for managing pain and for pushing. It was so much more peaceful and relaxed than I ever could have imagined because I kept remembering all the advice to breathe and to keep my shoulders and jaw relaxed. Ultimately the contractions were relentless and were back to back, so I did the epidural, but all that pelvic floor work paid off because it took less than an hour to push. Pretty good for a first time mama!I’m also so glad we took the opportunity to arrange a private pregnant Partner At Om PLAYSHOP because it was such a special experience. My husband and I both had so much fun despite it being my husband’s first time ever doing yoga. Keya walked us through so many techniques, but I especially loved the rebozo scarf. We had a fun time practicing exercises we could do together, but the tips for managing early labor helped us tremendously when it came time for the real deal. The breathing exercises got me through some pretty intense contractions! The best part by far was how my husband and I got to connect during the workshop. It got us started on a dialogue about what we need from each other and it truly helped us to be a team during labor. Thank you so much, Keya!”
“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 was both my doula for the birth of my first child 8 days ago, as well as my prenatal yoga teacher in Mar Vista (which is how I initially met her). I also took her Partners At Om PLAYSHOP! She is a luminous person, incredibly talented doula, engaging educator, and just an overall badass. I took Keya’s prenatal yoga class starting at my 18th week of pregnancy through my due date and loved her teaching style – every class was different and she would put together yoga sequences on the fly depending on the feedback of the class. She also cultivated community amongst the mamas in the class that I found very valuable and reassuring. As a doula, Keya was a critical part of the success of my baby’s birth. My 18 hour labor was incredibly painful for multiple reasons, including having a very large baby. I was also committed to delivering my child naturally. I truly could not have navigated the contractions without Keya’s guidance and coaching. She is a pain shaman. I was able to get through the most painful experience of my life without drugs because of her skills. Also, my labor would have been longer if not for her carefully working in tandem with my midwife to understand the progression of the baby’s movement downward as well as my dilation, and strategizing labor positions and exercises to help keep my labor progressing. Coming away from my birth with both a healthy, happy baby AND the feeling of empowerment and satisfaction of giving birth on my own terms is everything to me; a completely transformative experience. I’m so grateful to Keya and I recommend her passionately!”
“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!”
“I could not have gotten through labor without Keya nor would I want to even imagine her not there with me! She got to my house at the perfect time and helped me start to dance my baby out. Her coping tools and labor navigation not to mention overall warmth and nurturing nature was exactly what I needed. Consider yourself lucky to have such a beautiful soul at your birth”
“Thanks to Keya Merah Nkonoki, I have a healthy, happy yoga baby. Now that my son Sage is two years old, his favorite thing right now is going into down-dog (using his head with booty straight up in the air) and arching into backbends with glee! During my 2nd and 3rd trimesters, I took prenatal yoga with Keya after work throughout my pregnancy. I loved how she always brought a different spiritual message to each class, but the same rock centered energy. She even brought us gratitude rocks at one class, and I still have mine that says “free”… As luck (or the universe) would have it, I got to have Keya at my side, helping me with yoga stretches and breathing, all throughout three long days of my Labor! She was assisting my doula. Everyone in my family was so impressed by Keya’s grounded energy and sweet light she brought into our home and my birth process. She let me squeeze her hand, lean into her with each surge (contraction), do lunges in our courtyard – whatever it took to keep things moving and flowing… My beautiful, healthy son Sage and I are eternally grateful. It was a blessing for me to be able to gift Keya with a private Sacred Infant Massage session in her home when her son Jai 3 was just two weeks old. Namaste…”
“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.”
“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.”
