Allegra DiStefano

Keya Merah Nkonoki was my post pardem doula. I honestly don't know what I would of done without her. She was indespensible, knowledgeable, and compassionate. I call her the baby whisperer because babies seem to melt in her arms.

I had a difficult birth that lead to an emergency c-section. She visited me in the hospital and was there when we got home from for those first couple of nights to help me and my husband through some difficulties. She helped me with pumping, bottle and breast-feeding, and my general recovery because I was not up on my feet for several weeks. She is incredibly knowledgeable with just about everything from what products are great, to what exercises help recovery.

My baby is now 3 months old and Keya does monthly visits with us where she adresses all my questions and concerns. I just learned some infant massage techniques and we are starting elimination communication. Keya is a great listener and I would recommend her to anyone!

My family had a wonderful experience with Keya as our postpartum doula!  Keya began working with our family when my son was about 5 months old and helped me tremendously, especially as a first time mother.  Keya helped us with everything from feeding (breastfeeding, bottles, solids) to helping us around the house to just giving me a little time to rest and re-group.  Keya was gentle and nurturing and respectful of our family's style of parenting.  She took my son for walks, sang to him, danced with him, read to him and conforted him.  She was always smiling and positive and I know that she truly cared for my son.  Her support was invaluable!!
