When I met Kyra at a community baby shower I knew immediately that she was the doula I had bee  searching for! She was so nice, welcoming, informative and helpful! You could see her heart in her smile. There's something special about her that every mom to be should get to experience. She is incredibly professional and so well prepared! The things I learned from her is priceless! There was nothing she wasn't willing to help me with...even helping bring groceries upstairs and figuring out why my printer stopped working lol She was there bright and early when my daughter was born amd stayed until she knew I was all settled in my room. Kyra is one of the most amazing souls I've ever met! We're so blessed that she could be our doula!

If you are a mother who wants to be holistically pampered and catered to, Kyra is for you! Kyra not only provides education and support but a warm presence and sincerity with her work. 
My family has been fortunate enough to have Kyra bless us with her Doula services for our first child. Her visits(before and after delivery) were informative and detailed to what our family needed at the time.  
My labor and delivery was a total of 36 hours and Kyra was present and attentive throughout. She made sure to assist me and my Fiancé every step of the way. 
We are so thankful and wish everyone could have a Kyra as a doula!

Prior to my becoming pregnant, I really didn't know much about a doula, and I didn't know anyone that had used one before. But once I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to have an extra amount of support for my husband and myself as we embarked on this new journey. I also knew I wanted to have an extra resource besides just googling everything or asking my OB. That's when I learned about doula services, and began to look for a doula. Kyra was the first doula we reached out to, and upon meeting her, we knew she was the right fit. Her compassion, kindness, understanding, and just general excitement for our pregnancy really stuck out and made us feel comfortable to work with her. We began working with her early on in the pregnancy, and enjoyed getting to know her, use the resources she provided us, and meet in person to prepare for our birth. She was always available for questions, and checked in on me regularly to see how I was doing and feeling, and really listened to what I was saying. It was so nice to have her in the delivery room to provide support, comfort, and different techniques to help me through labor. I also loved the aesthetic she brought to our delivery room, which included warm twinkle lights, soothing sounds, and calming smells. Kyra helped not only me, but also my husband as we navigated a long and tiresome labor, but was of course so worth it in the end! We are thankful to have had Kyra there as I delivered a baby boy into the world, and I appreciated the postpartum care that Kyra provided as part of her doula services as well. Again, she was warm, kind, and allowed me to vent or truly express how I was feeling during this new phase of my life. My husband and I are fortunate that we were able to have a doula support us during our pregnancy and delivery, and are continually telling others about doulas and the amazing impact they have on a birth experience. I would highly recommend a doula to anyone, and especially recommend Kyra!

Having Kyra as our Doula was one of the best things that could have ever happened to my family. It made a massive difference in our first-time birthing experience. She is kind pat,ient and incredibly uplifting. This woman pours light and love into you, and it is incredible. She was a huge support for my husband, who didn't know what to do (lol), and an advocate for me during such a vulnerable time. I highly recommend her for any woman, whether it be your first time or your fifth.

My experience with Kyra was nothing short of AMAZING! Going into pregnancy I knew I wanted it to be as peaceful as possible so I knew I had to find a doula. Having Kyra present was the best decision we made! She made my labor so smooth & peaceful I couldn't believe it! The techniques she showed us, the zen atmosphere that she provided & her gentle & loving spirit truly allowed me to have the experience I always wanted! So grateful for Kyra. Can't thank her enough!

We chose Kyra as our doula in 2018. From the first moment we talked, we could tell that Kyra was so kind and joyful. She sent us so much helpful information ahead of the birth, and was particularly helpful as we passed our due date and baby girl was not in any hurry ??. Kyra talked us through all of our options and supported our decisions along the way. She stayed with us in the hospital for our longgg labor, provided helpful encouragement and a calm presence every step of the way. She even decorated the hospital room with calming lights and soothing (fake) candles!! On the moments where I felt overwhelmed, Kyra stepped in to redirect and encourage me. She even prayed with us! She knew when to stand back and when to provide assistance. She even collaborated really well with my labor nurses and as they brainstormed helpful positions and ideas to keep my labor progressing smoothly. Though ultimately the labor and delivery experience went differently than we imagined, knowing we had Kyra with us and talking us through all the options was so reassuring. Kyra helped us feel confident in our decisions! Once we finally had our baby girl, Kyra was especially encouraging and talked us through everything that had happened and she rejoiced with us over our healthy baby girl!

Kyra was my doula for my hospital birth and she was so amazing to work with. Prior to the birth we met various times, both in person and by video meeting, and she answered any questions I had during my pregnancy. She always checked in with me after my prenatal appointments and was very supportive the entire journey. I was planning an unmedicated hospital birth. I did have some complications such as preeclampsia and fetal decreased heart rate which didn't allow me to have the unmedicated birth I wanted, but Kyra was there supporting me and giving me information to help me make informed decisions throughout the labor. I would definitely hire her again in the future!

My family and I had the pleasure of working with Ms.Kyra on March 21, 2022 and we all welcomed a very healthy baby boy. It's been a whole year and I can't stop talking about her and how wonderful she was to me and the staff at the hospital. Our goal was a natural birth and I remember a few times I wanted to give in for the epidural but Ms. Kyra literally voice would calm me down.  I could write a book about this amazing person. I pray she's there for my next child. She was such a blessing to have on my very special day. I pray every family get to experience a Ms. Kyra at their special day too.

Kyra was an amazing doula. Between the frequent check ins and communications between scheduled meetings, it was an amazing experience. She was very helpful when it came to deciding what worked best for me and my partner and always made sure we were comfortable above all else. I had a lot of misconceptions about doulas prior to this experience: I thought there would be some lady trying to push their beliefs onto me. My experience with Kyra was nothing like that it was always about what I felt was best and what I really wanted to get out of this. Overall, I had a great birth and I have Kyra to thank for helping me get through it! I could not have been paired with a better doula! Thank you so much Kyra!

She may me feel comfortable through out my pregnancy journey ?????? she also know basic sign language and she was very accommodating. I am her first Deaf client she ever work with. Kyra even took the time to take her mask down so I can read her lips! When I have baby #2, I will def rehire her again!!! ????????

For many months leading up to my delivery I had heard from many friends how wonderful it is to have a doula. I began research through some of direct contacts who then led me to doula.net. This is where I found Kyra, and she is amazing! My previous 2 births (one induction and one nearly in our home) were not as wonderful as this. I called Kyra from the contact information on doula.net and was immediately intrigued just from her voicemail. I knew I wanted someone of faith in Christ to be in the room when the time came for me to deliver. At 36 weeks, I received the upsetting news that I was only allowed one support person and was basically told that on delivery day, I would have to choose between my spouse and the doula. I was devastated. I couldn’t imagine my husband not being there to witness the birth of our 3rd child as he had done with the other 2. Kyra sprang into action helping me identify and secure care at another hospital and by extension another OB. Despite the frustration of having to switch providers at 36 weeks, Kyra continued to reassure me and manage our in person visits and virtual visits. On delivery day, Kyra was prompt, set up the hospital room with soft lighting and visuals that helped me navigate the birthing experience with greater ease. We arrived at 2pm and our baby was born just 5 hrs later. From reassuring words to enlisting the assistance of my husband, I felt supported and motivated to do my part. With each contraction, Kyra made the most of it by helping me to get into positions that would encourage the baby to move down the birth canal. She was respectful and kind to the staff and worked diligently to help me deliver. I am so thankful for Kyra. I feel hopeful that if was again to have another child, I could do it knowing that Kyra would be there to help. I highly recommend Kyra!

After meeting a few doulas, I chose Kyra to be my doula because I felt she had great energy. I'm glad I picked her because she was exactly who I needed to help me through my labor and delivery. She helped my husband with tips on how to support and comfort me through my contractions, she reminded me to breathe, and helped me to change into optimal positions. Kyra provided me with emotional support through my pregnancy and I enjoyed our talks. Those conversations really helped me mentally and Kyra was professional, she listened to my concerns, she motivated me, and she would send me information so that I could stay informed. Overall I loved having her as my doula, my birth experience wouldn't have been what it was without her.

After having a 14 year gap between giving birth my husband and I knew we wanted to do things in a holistic way. We looked into things and definitely wanted a doula. We searched doulamatch.net and found a handful and set up interviews. Kyra with Little Miracles Doula was one of the first we interviewed and we knew from the start she'd be the one we'd go with. We automatically vibed with her. She listened to our needs and wants and gave us the information we needed. She was on the same page as us and was willing to support us with whatever we wanted. She was attentive before, during and after birth. She had so many different coping tools and information we could use during labor and birth. At the hospital she set a relaxing tone / environment for us. Lights, affirmations, essential oils, music, coping tools, sound advice, conversation and overall amazing support. She and my husband got me through each contraction smoothly up until I decided I needed something. Through it all she supported my every need and want. The birthing process went smoothly afterwards. She assisted the whole way through even during my pushing stage. Kyra was emotionally and physically supportive to me through it all. Coaching me and assuring me that I had the ability to do this! She also helped my husband to help me the best way he could. Kyra is an amazing woman and she is amazing at what she does. She will help you get through your labor and birth with ease. She has a great ablity to keep you calm and comfortable as well as strong and focused on your birth goals. We will defiantly love to have her again should we have another child. I highly recommend Kyra and Little Miracles Soula Services.

Kyra is a wondefully sweet person and a truly impressive doula. After our initial consultation hiring her as my doula was a no-brainer.  Although I hired her late in my pregnancy, she was still able to provide me with a wealth of helpful information and recources. She is articulate, prompt, and ever the professional.

As first time parents, my husband and I were nervous and didn't know what to expect out of our birth experience but Kyra's calm demeanor and confidence put our minds at ease. During transition she even coached my hesitant husband in administering pain-relief techniques. Kyra's soothing presence made a world of difference during my 24 hour labor.

Kyra is the support person you want in your corner cheering you on. I whole-heartedly recommender her services.

Kyra is one of the sweetest people I've come across, she's very understanding, knowledgeable, flexible with scheduling, and very patient. Having Kyra as my doula made my pregnancy so easy and stress free! I can't thank you enough, appreciate everything you did for us.

Kyra is amazing. She was my doula for my first birth, and was everything I was hoping a doula would be, and more. My primary concern was having somebody there who would keep both me and my husband calm during the birth process and guide us through it. My sister had had an unnecessary cesarean, so I was determined to have a natural birth but I also didn't want to take unnecessary medical risks. We needed someone that knew the data for both natural births and modern medicine, had a lot of experience, and would keep us from panicking and ending up on the Cascade of Interventions.Kyra was all that and more. She was also a warm and encouraging presence who stayed with us through the night during a rather harrowing labor. She coached me and my husband through active labor techniques that significantly diminished the pain (it felt miraculous), and cheered me on during the pushing stage (when I couldn't look at my husband's nervous face I focused on hers). Her warm encouragement gave me strength through the final stretch.Because of several complications, I most likely would have ended up with an emergency C-section if it hadn't been for Kyra. The hospital was prone to interventions, and it could have been difficult for me and my husband to figure out which ones were actually essential and which would backfire.  Kyra's pregnancy visits taught us more than the hospital birth class, and it all ended up mattering. At the hospital she coached me through labor at the most critical moments...I had the urge to push too early, and she helped me to stop with counter pressure and vocal encouragement. Everything worked out beautifully in the end. That moment when they lifted up my daughter and put her on my chest was the most wonderful thing in the world.Because of Kyra, we had a vaginal delivery and had a wonderful birth experience. She is extremely knowledgeable, warm, level-headed, and encouraging. You couldn't ask for more.

This was my first time using a Doula. I was super nervous about the whole situation due to COVID and having someone who could identify with me and understand my needs and fears especially as a woman of color. Kyra was amazing plus more. There isn't a feeling big enough to describe how much it meant to have someone there with me during such a life changing experience. She was kind and warm and she listened to my every concern and eased all my fears. I don't plan on having any more children but I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. 
Thank you Kyra for being apart of this experience.

Hello my name is Arvella Hill. I just want to say Kyra Lanae was so amazing. She was professional but also like a sister. She listened to all my wants and needs. Whatever I needed before labor she got it for me. During my labor she supported me. Kyra made me feel so comfortable that I honestly didn't ask for epidural until I was almost ready to push. I only asked for it because I was so cold. I think if I was at home I wouldn't have gotten it, but Kyra was so attentive and if I wanted to have another I certainly would want Kyra to be my doula again. Thank you  Kyra for your time, support and love. You are awesome.

Kyra was very helpful during my pregnancy experience. Even tho due to covid she wasn't able to be in the room. I felt very well prepared from our phone sessions to advocate for myself and my son. As a first time mother , I was very much unaware of many things and rights I was entitled too. She was my coach and even my sound board during emotional times.

I am definitely reaching back out for her assistance with my next pregnancy!!

I am deeply thankful for Kyra being a part of my labor and delivery experience. Kyra's assistance as my personal support throughout my intense labor was truly a blessing. I don't know how I would have coped without her. Kyra was always kind and patient. She helped me to endure and provided strategies and methods, coupled with her soothing voice and calm demeanor, to push through the pain. I recommend Kyra and her doula services to all expecting families.

I had an AMAZING experience with Kyra! Even though we were virtual, she was always there for me. When I didn't understand something she would send me info. When I was I in the hospital and ready to push, she came IMMEDIATELY to be there with me and my partner. Even with postpartum she assisted me with things and was a listening ear for me. And now I'm excited to say she will be supporting me with my next birth as well :)

Being a new mother can come with many worries but having Kyra as my doula put all my worries at ease. Kyra is professional, caring and so helpful when it comes to preparing you for motherhood. With our weekly  appointments I got so much information about parenting, newborn care, breastfeeding etc. and I always had the option to bring topics that I wanted to talk about. I couldn't have had a better experience when it came to labor. Kyra was there every step of the way! Thank you Kyra for being such an amazing being and doing what you do for mother's and their new families??

My doula was a godsend!! Being pregnant during the pandemic severely limited my options for who I could have present for the birth. I really wanted at least two people there so that one can advocate for me and the baby. My doula talked me through all my fears and apprehensions,so I was prepared for everything that could happen. I really appreciated talking through everything and having her in the delivery room. She gave the knowledge to advocate for me and my child.

I had a great experience with Kyra. She was very supportive and informative. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting in person until my delivery due to COVID-19. However, when we finally did meet she was even more great! I had a very complicated and traumatic delivery and Kyra was there to walk me through it. We did plenty of the exercises we went over leading up to my delivery and we had my birth plan prepared months ahead! She was such a great help and I would recommend her to anyone who is interested in doula services!

There are no words to describe how grateful  my partner and I were to have Kyra as our doula ! Thanks to her I was able to have my dream delivery experience. Not only did she support me through my first delivery, she also gave me plenty of information and provided me with the tools I needed to feel like I was ready to deliver and take care of my first baby. She was attentive to my needs and made me feel like I could ask her anything (no question was a silly question ). Both my partner and I were left with amazing memories and one of the best life experience all thanks to Kyra. If you are looking to have a supportive, attentive and caring doula than Kyra is your girl! She was simply amazing! Thank you Kyra from the bottom of our hearts Alex and Andrea !
