Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I founded the Brave Birth Doula Care collective in Portland, Oregon in 2015. I am currently thrilled to be working with Birth First Doulas. ALSO, I am the director of a troupe-devised theater production about local Portland birth stories. This show is mounted yearly to share real Portland birth stories. Please consider submitting your birth story or even auditioning for our next show. All proceeds benefit rotating local organizations that provide prenatal and postpartum support to birthing people and families in need.

Jen Saiki

Kelly helped us through our second pregnancy, which was going to be a VBAC birth (and succesfully was!). She provided amazing care and was incredibly sensitive to our needs. We never felt pressured to do anything one particular way; just very informed. Her knowledge is plentiful. Having had a pregnancy and birth (c-section) without a doula, and then having the second pregnancy with a doula allowed us to see how much better the whole experience is when you have a doula. Kelly’s attitude and personality is so light and loving but also very grounded. Just what you need when you’re scared/in labor/giving birth. I highly recommend her!
