Hi there! I’m Kristen - married, mama of four, who loves Jesus, and a brand new DONA trained birth doula in Greenville, SC! Currently taking clients at a lower fee, while I gain hands on experience as a doula! Personally, I have had four very different birth experiences, one hospital, two birth center, and a home birth. Learning so much with each one! I am so excited to be able to help women equip themselves with all the knowledge, tools, and choices they need to navigate their pregnancies, and to support them physically and emotionally through one of the most transformative experiences of their lives!

I cannot put into words how grateful I am for Kristen and the spirit of peace and motherhood that accompanied us in the birth of our first child! Kristen provided education, resources, and was the calm my husband and I both needed for the last few weeks of pregnancy, our birth (which was a wildly beautiful homebirth), and first few weeks of postpartum! She IS the gift I wish all mamas had during this most wonderful and challenging transition of a women's life. The care received after birth was unmatched from any care I've ever received and am so thankful for the joyful experience that was achieved while working with Kristen as our doula and friend.
There are so many decisions that we make regarding pregnancy and childbirth. I have no doubt that our best decision we made was to hire Kristen to be our doula. At first, we were hesitant about the idea of sharing one of the most intimate moments of our lives with anyone else, but the moment we met Kristen, that all changed. My husband and I both walked away from that first interview gushing about how much we already loved her, and how perfect she was. I could just tell that she was exactly the kind of person I could trust and count on during this vulnerable time in my life. I looked forward to each of our visits, being able to go over so much helpful information with her. She was a wealth of knowledge and wisdom, and thanks to her, I went through my entire pregnancy feeling extremely informed and full of confidence. When the big day arrived, things didn't go quite as expected due to circumstances beyond our control. I can't even begin to imagine what that day might have looked like had it not been for Kristen being there. No matter what was going on, she always found a way to bring a much needed calm back to my birth space. She was there to encourage and reassure me and my husband every step of the way. She knew exactly what I needed at each moment, and she was so good at helping my husband know how to help me and when to help me. When I look back on that day, I can't picture it without Kristen there. They say doulas are birth angels, and that couldn't be more true about Kristen. I will forever be thankful that she was there to help us welcome our baby boy into the world. If we are blessed with more children, I will without a doubt want Kristen to be there. She will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
If you're considering getting a doula, you will not find a better one than Kristen, and I promise it will be the best decision you make during this very special time in your life.
ok guys, regardless if it's your first or your fifth child there are probably some things your partner may decide she needs that we don't exactly understand. If I can give unsolicited advice, Kristen is the total package that you both need. Even if your partner hasn't looked into the benefits of a doula, believe me when I say it will be just as much a benefit for you as her. Kristen heightened our experience as my wife and I agreed to birth our first naturally. Kristen was prepared with techniques that I would have never thought of and this allowed me to focus more on my wife and the experience of our beautiful boy and less on the unknown that creates anxiety that isn't benificial for our precious boy. Kristen fit perfectly into our intimate moments and long before it was over, I felt Kristen become part of our tribe. She will forever be part of an experience that frankly...well, just can't be described by the English language. In fact, I couldn't even give a review to her abilities because reviews aren't justice for what she does. No amount of stars will justify her worth. So here is my testimony. Kristen has reminded me the importance of and how to love my wife and continues to be apart of our story postpartum as needs change. Kristen is a blessing that no training video and article in the latest baby book can substitue. Remove the anxiety of birth and replace it with love and let this amazing professional show you the way!
My fiancé and I were SO blessed to have Kristen as our doula. Being first time parents, we had so many questions through our journey. Kristen was so prompt at responding and always so helpful. Labor went so smoothly with her, she was prepared in every way. Down to the fan when I got hot! To this day, she checks in and still is there to answer any questions I may have about myself and the baby. I could not have asked for a better doula.
