K., is a birth and postpartum doula serving New York City and Westchester. She was trained by International Doula Institute as a
full-spectrum doula and in lactation through Go Milk Yourself by Francie Webb. She is also a licensed massage therapist, skilled in both prenatal and postpartum massage. She’s a mother of four and grandmother of eight. As a doula, K. provides emotional support and comfort measures continuously to both the laboring person and their partner. She creates the opportunity for peace of mind while navigating the unpredictability and possible stresses of birth. Along with sharing her experience and expertise, her presence as your “person in the room” will have you be confident and calm throughout your entire pregnancy journey. While she doesn’t offer clinical or medical advice, she will help you make informed choices that are in line with your preferences. K. is highly effective at listening for what really matters to you and advocating for you to communicate it, no matter what’s happening – this is really her super power. With K. by your side offering
encouragement and reassurance, as well as touch techniques, both you and your partner will be in good hands. K. supports new parents as they discover what it is to be a mom or dad. She is patient while answering questions day or night and empowers new parents to trust their gut and believe in themselves. No question is too small – she knows what it’s like to be a new parent.

She’ll help you find the joy through the exhaustion. Whether you need guidance on how to dress (and undress) your baby, comfort your baby, swaddle, soothe and get them to sleep, or just take a much-needed nap, she’s there for you. She can also cook and clean and pick up supplies for anything you need postpartum – and offer the best massage.

K. is the perfect blend of compassion, knowledge, and contribution. She will support and empower you every step of the way!

I hesitated to hire a doula because of the expense, but as someone with chronic pain who’s spent their life gaslit by the medical community, I decided my peace of mind and the wellbeing of both my baby and myself were worth the added cost. Since it was my first pregnancy, I researched several doulas, and I’m glad I hired G. and K. as part of my support team. They provided a level of care that went above and beyond my expectations. They were empathetic, direct, and supportive throughout my pregnancy and postpartum journey. During labor and delivery, G. empowered me to gently push back when I didn’t feel heard in the hospital. She also ensured medical errors and complications were promptly addressed during my days-long labor process, and got me the added attention I needed from my medical team to birth a beautiful and healthy baby boy. But her help didn’t stop there—she remained just as responsive, helpful, and kind during my first weeks postpartum. Don’t delay booking their services. You’ll be glad you did. —K.
