About Me

(I use she/her pronouns)

Hi! I'm Keelia.

I've always loved birth. My mom was a childbirth educator, so I was lucky enough to grow up with pregnant women practicing breathing techniques and birthing positions in our living room every Tuesday night. Becoming a doula was the most natural thing in the world for me, and I've loved every sweaty, beautiful second of it since I began working as a birth and postpartum doula in 2015.
As part of the reproductive justice movement, I believe that all parents deserve an empowering and celebrated birth experience regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexuality, body type, or religion, and I am over-the-moon excited to work with you towards the birth experience you're hoping for.

Testimonials

"Keelia's hands-on comfort techniques, gentle affirmations, and calming presence were invaluable to me and I truly don't know if I could have had the birth experience I hoped for without her."
Erin, Tessa and Bridget's mom
Keelia's presence in the room and her counsel and good-nature kept us feeling empowered and focused. I cannot imagine the experience without her.
April, Arlo's mom
"She made me feel safe and relaxed. She laughed with me and cheered us on. My mom told her, 'You are part of the family now,' and it is true."
Courtney, Connor's mom
I had difficulties finding a doula who was familiar with the LGBTQ scene enough to feel comfortable in my home. Keelia acquainted herself with everyone (and their pronouns) so she really felt like part of the family. The only regret I have is that I waited so late to hire her.
Zipporah, Sojourner's mom
Keelia's personality and caring nature are what we love about her. She is so kind and makes your feel like you can do anything!
Emily, Ruby May's mom
Keelia is an all-around supportive person to have around. I never felt awkward and always felt encouraged, seen, and understood, for both my messes and my victories!
Henna, Oso's mom
