Personal Experience

As a mom of twins, Kayla was on bed rest starting at 28 weeks for preterm labor until she gave birth at 34 weeks. Before that she had kidney stones and was hospitalized for a week. Kayla understands the feelings and emotions running through a mom’s mind during this time, and knows how far a kind word can go let alone unconditional support. As an antenatal doula, it is her goal to provide women with all the support they need to prepare for their birth in comfort and peace.

Fun fact: Being on bed rest for awhile Kayla also picked up many new hobbies like crocheting, which she is am more than happy to pass on!
