Volunteer doula at Woodwinds Hospital in Woodbury one 24 hour period each month as an on-call doula. I have been a doula for over a year now and I love it. I have enjoyed being a doula for several single women, along with some couples. Previous to my doula training, I have worked in the areas of finance, banking, self employment and education. Besides my business skills, every occupation I have had in the past 30 years used my skills in customer service. I know how to take care of customers, which is a skill that is very much a part of being a doula. In the past, I have volunteered with elementary school kids, and young mothers associated though the Children Home Society of St Paul. I have also worked with low income women and minorities starting their own businesses through WomenVenture also in St Paul. I now live in Red Wing, MN and am the mother of 3 adult young men.

At the time when I was down 8 months pregnant I was really stressed and overwhelmed with life. When I met Rhonda I was staying in a women shelter with 2 children and the 3rd baby on the way. I was blessed to meet Rhonda at that time someone who made me feel comfortable sharing my pain and thoughts to. She has been so very supportive from the start showing kindness and love. My mother was not able to see my previous kids at birth so to have a doula for the first time felt less alone. Rhonda McKim has been blessed to bear others burdens and to fulfill happiness to the ones who has the chance to experience her. May god continue her growth in her journey and also continue to bless her heart.

 I don’t honestly have all the words to describe how incredible and meaningful this woman was for me and my family. If you need a doula who is the definition of compassionate and understanding and knowledgeable then this is the woman and doula for you. From the moment she stepped foot in my home and cradled my toddler and to when she held and cradled me telling me I’m DOING IT!!! there is nobody who deserves more props then Rhonda. She has My eternal gratitude. She was so amazing my doctor thought she was my mother, she was that loving and warm. To say she was worth the money is an understatement because she’s worth her weight in Gold. If I ever give birth again she will be by my side. Thank you Rhonda and God Bless you!
