I met Kim through a local Facebook group and am so glad I did. Kim was our sibbling doula for our DD during the homebirth of our DS. We are new to Orlando and had no family/friends to rely on during our birthing. My husband and I both knew we wanted our DD to be involved in our birthing, but at the same time DD is only 2 and realisticlly could not be involved the entire time. We originally hired Kim to just be our sibbling doula but since I went into labor overnight she helped myself and my husband during the times that our daughter was asleep. We were relieved to know that our DD would be well taken care of and owe Kim more than we can ever express for her help with my labor. Kim is great with kids, has loads of knowledge, is caring, and all around a great lady. Her help with my labor was SO helpful. She really is an awesome doula. I really liked that she was able to go with the flow of my labor and be flexible with things.

Kim has such a caring heart and is a delight to be around. She made me feel safe and knowledgable when I  was going through some rough things. I had a difficult surrogate pregnancy and was trying to come to terms with the possibility of a csection. Kim helped me through this and so much more. In the end things turned out alright and Kim was with me for my entire (long!) labor and birthing experience. I plan to contact Kim again for my next pregnancy!

I really enjoyed having Kim as my doula. She is helpful and very knowledgeable.  She was able to help me relax enough so I was able to labor comfortably..As comfortably as one can while having contractions ; p

I'm really glad I had Kim as my doula. I really think that my birth would have been very different had she not been with me. She goes above and beyond for her clients. 

I would recommend her and if I have another baby I will be booking with her ASAP! For doula AND placenta services.
