 I had a wonderful experience with Keisha as my Doula. I’m so happy I decided to go with Doula .! And I’m glad that God lead us to Keisha. Throughout the entire process she was always more than willing to help us with questions  that we had. She was very quick to respond through text and email. In our circumstance we called her a little too early but Keisha was more than understanding. She still came back to our house and hung out with us until things settled in only to be called back in about 10 hours.

She did great job at taking initiative. This was my first pregnancy and so it was hard for me to articulate what I needed or when I needed it and such but she did amazing job at taking initiative in rubbing my back when I needed it or holding my hand or getting a heat pack. I am very glad that she was there for my birth. With my husband on one side and Keshia on the other I was able to deliver a happy healthy baby.

She was a beautiful calm pressence during a very chaotic yet amazing time of life and I’m glad that she was by my side. I would recommend a Keisha to anyone who is looking for a caring, beautiful soul to be by there side.

I had a very positive experience working with Keshia. I am so glad that I went with a doula and found her before my delivery. I felt like she was dedicated to me because if I needed her, she was there right away. She encouraged me before and during my labor. She helped me to relax; she helped me to breathe. And she also listened to me and was by my side the whole time. She was a wonderful doula, and I would recommend her to anyone that I know!

My experience working with Keshia during my pregnancy could not have been a more loving and supportive one. If you are considering a doula who will give their undivided attention, definitely consider her! She eased my fears as a first time mommy with her knowledge of the birth process and created a birth plan that worked for my comfort level. She was always accessible in times where I had questions and would quickly respond to me. Keshia went above and beyond during labor, staying awake with me for almost twenty four hours offering me non-stop encouragement and calming techniques during this experience. Alongside my husband she prayed for my daughter as she entered the world, and rooted for me through my exhaustion. Throughout all the chaos that is childbirth, Keshia noted all the important details about this experience that my husband and I might have forgotten and wrote a beautiful story of my childbirth experience as a gift to give to me. In this story she captured our initial meeting, our experience working together up until the big day, and of course an outsiders's perspective on watching a new mom and dad react to their child being born. It was a perfect momento to put in my daughter's scrapbook and shows how detailed and caring Keshia made this experience for my husband and I. She has a calming soul and is well known for this in the community. First time mommas and mothers who are considering a doula for yourself, she is hands down the best.

From the first sit-down about birth plans to my actual birth to follow up calls, Keshia has always been compassionate, attentive and well informed. I was very grateful to have Keshia be a part of my birth experience. I enjoyed her thoroughness during our conversation regarding my wishes in the birthing process. She left nothing but confindence and determination in me to have the birth experience I had dreamed of. During my birth process, she was always by my side reencouraging me and keeping me hydrated. Her presence kept me calm and reassured. It was very comforting to know my husband and I had an extra pair of helping hands that had been through this process before. I did have an absolutely wonderful birth and Keshia will always be a part of what I accomplished that day. I especially loved her follow up calls and visit after the birth. It was lovely to be checked on and for her to offer assistance if I needed it. Thank you Keshia for all your hard work and knowledge, I truly enjoyed meeting and working with you and you will forever be a part of one of the most special moments in my life.

Having never had a doula before, I wasn't sure what to expect but I truly was amazed at the care and dedication shown by Keshia. Not only was she willing to travel nearly two hours one way (including a ferry) to attend as many appointments as possible (I often had two to three appointments a week due to complications) she always reached out to make sure that everything was going well on the visits she was unable to attend. When I was urgently admitted to be induced, Keshia dropped everything to come to my side as quickly as possible. She even stayed the night and nearly until midnight the next night making sure that both baby and me were being taken care of prior to my discharge. When my baby was admitted to the NICU for six days she often checked up on us and made sure that I was taking care of myself in addition to being there for  my baby. 

Keshia's dedication was far and beyond anything I could have antcipated. I truly recomend anyone looking for a doula so consider her.
