My husband and I had a great experience with Ke'xia that set us up for a confident and connected pregnancy, birth, and early parenting experience. We met with several doulas before Ke'xia and were instantly drawn to her calm demeanor and grounded sense of humor. Ke'xia was a perfect fit for our birth team and really served as a great guide for these two first time parents.

Ke'xia really helped my husband and I prioritize and prepare for having our baby. She helped us work through our birth plan and decide how important it was to us to be able to connect and be present. Our family lives three hours+ away by plane, and it was fantastic to have someone there who'd "done it before". My husband is a planner by nature and wasn't sure how he'd do with a situation that felt so out of his control. Ke'xia's flexibility helped us to stay calm throughout a long labor.

My original plan had been to do position changes and shower to alleviate pain, but my contractions were too intense to stand or hold myself up. Ke'xia coached my husband as he guided me through breathing exercises and helped me to stay present. I really do believe that the positive, calm, and empowering environment Ke'xia created was what enabled me to push out a 9 lb 9 oz baby over four hours without distress from either me or the baby. Despite all the research I'd done, it somehow never occurred to me that this was a tough or long delivery. I simply felt that I was doing what I needed to do at my own pace.

In addition to the great birth experience, Ke'xia was also a fantastic resource for questions post-partum and during pregnancy. If/when I have a second baby I will absolutely seek out Ke'xia's services again.

Ke’xia was an instrumental part of my care team during and after my pregnancy. I was immediately drawn to her gentle and laid-back spirit, two qualities that helped ease my anxiety as a first-time mom. She was always prompt to offer support, and she made both myself and my partner feel much more confident in anticipation of baby’s arrival. Ke'xia was the first person I texted as soon as I went into labor; despite it being 3am, she immediately responded and walked me through what the next few hours would be like, how to time my contractions, and when I should go to the hospital.

Although she couldn’t physically attend the birth and sent a backup doula in her place (who was also incredible), I genuinely believe Ke’xia’s guidance empowered me to advocate for myself and my baby and have the birth story of my dreams: a vaginal, unmedicated birth (with the baby delivered in a squatting position, no less!). Even though she was technically just my birth doula, she continued to offer postpartum support over the next few weeks that was integral to my healing. I am forever grateful to Ke’xia and her affirming energy and will no doubt reach out to her again for any future pregnancies!
