Kimberly Brock

I call Keely my angel healer . After Interviewing 4 doulas I was frustrated. Right away , I found that she listened to my needs and responded with kindness and intelligence . Other doulas I met with were too "out there . " Keely is spiritual and kind , like I wanted but also has a masters degree in Public Health .She is a perfect marriage of healing work with a medical background . I really wanted to have a natural birth so Keely connected me with her birth class that she leads with Julie Frietz. Keely taught us with extreme expertise .  She was patient and willing to do whatever it took to make sure all of us felt heard , understood and were prepared . 

As the pregnancy progressed , Keely made 2 home visits , helped me prepare a breastfeeding station, padsicles and plan my birth . She even talked me down - I was having some issues with my pregnancy and I was strugglingly dealing with the possible outcomes . She calmed my fears and made me feel reassured that things will be okay . I think the biggest part of her presence is her confidence and assuring that she knows what to do to help us get through anything. 

My pregnancy took a turn and we had to have a cesarian . Keely came to the recovery and even though I was out of it she helped my daughter latch right away . I am  convinced if she hadn't have come my breastfeeding experience would be different . She stayed with us until we were settled and everything was calm . Just having her there Lakers me feel more at peace because I knew in a sea of strangers at the hospital my husband and I had an advocate who knew our needs . Especially since we have no family in Los Angeles - having her was like having family . At our post birth visit , she helped me do things  around the house and process the birth . I recommend Keely .I am so grateful she came into our path to help our Lily Luz come into the world .
