About Me

as a doula and social justice advocate

Hi! I'm Keelia.

Originally from Chicago, I grew up in Kampala, Uganda, where I first began work as a doula. After attending Williams College in Massachusetts, I returned to Uganda with my husband to work with a legal aid nonprofit advocating for survivors of gender-based violence. Now certified as a Full-Spectrum Doula through the International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC), I'm based in the Boston area to continue my work as a doula and reproductive justice advocate.
As part of the reproductive justice movement, I believe that all parents deserve an empowering and celebrated prenatal, birth, and postpartum experience regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexuality, body type, or religion.
“Birth matters. It brings us into being, on many levels.”

"A doula is an empty vessel. Whatever is required of us, we are present - for the mother, for the father, for the family."
