Meet Gainesville Doula Kayla Dickens

{PRACTICE NAME} Doula, Kayla DickensHello, my name is Kayla Dickens, I am the wife of an amazing man Lance Dickens, who is a teacher and in the National Guard. I am the mother of beautiful twins, Sterling (my daughter) and Sabin (my son). I am an antenatal, labor, and postpartum doula, and a Childbirth Educator certified with Baby Steps.

Discovering a Passion for Birth

I discovered my passion for birth work when I had my twins and had an amazing doula by my side. She believed in me and what I wanted which in turn made me believe more strongly in myself. She helped me recognize the power I had inside me to have an amazing birth experience despite what medical professionals were telling me. With her help I was able to labor naturally with my twins and choose a walking epidural, which allowed me to feel all my contractions and the birth process, right before the twins were born in case of an emergency c-section.

I am passionate about helping women to find empowerment in their pregnancy and birth. Childbirth is an experience that stays with a woman the rest of her life and I am determined to make sure that memory is a positive one to look back on years from now.”

I am an advocate for evidence based education to be used during pregnancy and labor. I strive to stay up to date on studies and information pertaining to birth so that I may provide my clients with the most current information possible.

High Risk Pregnancy Experience

As a mother of twins I have personally experienced a high risk pregnancy fraught with complications such as kidney stones and preterm labor. I delivered my twins at 34 weeks and labored under constant monitors. I enjoy working with Mothers and families during high risk pregnancies providing them with the support they need to have the best possible pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.

Other Interests

Besides working as a doula I love working with animals and children. I volunteer much of my time at a special needs hippotherapy center. I myself have 3 dogs, 3 cats, and a horse. I am a lover of all things outdoors and can be found hiking most weekends (especially in the fall).
