Having a doula makes me feel special and cared for at one of the most important times in my life. Kimathi always goes above and beyond to make sure I have information or anything else I need. Social distancing has put a pause on home visits which was sad but she never fails to check on me and keep our appointments. Because of my doula I can feel at ease ready to complete this birth journey.

Having Kimathi as a Doula was one of the best decisions I had ever chose. She was highly supportive from the moment we first spoke. She became a big sister to me. When I went into labor, she stayed with me from the moment I got to the hospital until the following day making sure that I had a comfortable and healthy baby and delivery! Even after my delivery, she came by and always checked/checks up on me to make sure me and baby are good and have everything we need. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVEEEED the birth strides program and having Kimathi as my Doula! You ROCK Mathi!

Kimathi was very genuine and knowledgeable about all things dealing with prenatal and post natal care. She was a great listener and let me know all my options. I appreciate her helping me get my birth plan into place. Kimathi was definitely an emotional and mental support for me as well. She will definitely show you healthier ways to eat and exercises to do to alleviate pain. Having a Doula was a new, but much needed experience for me. I am so glad I chose Birth Strides.

Strangers to Sisters:

My time with Kimathi is nothing short of Amazing! I was egar and excited about the new adventure I was to embark upon and happy that I had sombody there with me through it all. I was an emotional rolo coster due to my situation. I was 25 at the time of my pregnancy. This was my 1st child and my home life wasnt so hot. It was hard to keep a steady income, my childs father was giving me the blues and the only joy I found was in my in-home meetings with her. She is so personable and it helped that we liked the same things. She was genuinely there for me as a person, as a new mommy and equally important as a black woman in the midsouth! She is very knowledgeable and kind. She and I bonded over my learning experience. She explain everything about my pregnant body thoroughly. She shows me real love and I am forever greatful for her. She helped through my darkest days while pregnant, and help me keep a clear head. She is now a person I hold near to my heart because of her me and my child are here she may not know it but I am so GREATFUL she was there for me then and we've developed such a relationship she's here for me now!! 

I love her and all the work she does !

Kimanthi has been such a gift to our family! She came into our lives after my daughter was born. My two older boys still talk about how much fun she is. She came into our house full of positive energy and ready to work. She did everything for us- from meal prepping to screening me for post partum mood disorder to taking my boys outside then giving them lunch to giving me counsel on navigating family issues. Kimanthi is a birth activist who is dedicated to helping mothers everywhere. Her connections within the birth doula community and breastfeeding groups helped connect me with needed resources. Her kindness and friendship mean the world to me!

Kimathi has been amazing since the day we met! From the very beginning, she has made me feel confident in my decisions and she's been very supportive! She is always available to  help me with any concerns or questions.  Not only is she a great doula, but she is very informative and educated on what goes on in the community with prenatal and postnatal events and classes. She is very intentional about building a personal relationship and though I haven't known her very long, I feel that we have built a bond in such little time. To be honest, it will be hard for me not connect with her once my baby is born. She is honestly everything I prayed for in a doula and I would recommend her to anybody!

I selected Kimathi as my doula because she truly has a gentle and caring spirit; Definitely one of a kind. Throughout my prenatal journey Kimathi regularly checked in to see how I was feeling, to offer suggestions, provide tips, or even to make sure that I was drinking enough water. Kimathi is very respectful of an individual's space and energy, and inclusive to all involved.

My experience with Kimathi was so good that she is my doula again as I prepare to bring another life from the spiritual realm to the earthly realm.
