Unbiased, Evidence Based Support
In life we make decisions based on the information we have.
As a doula, whether it be for birth or postpartum, Kelsey is your third-party advocate that provides unbiased evidence-based information. As a doula Kelsey cuts out the noise providing only evidence-based resources and research.
Her approach is to walk alongside you in a relationship-based manner. From in-depth in-home visits in each trimester, birth plan preparation, resource referrals to in person birth support where she supports you as well as engages and guides your support person- Kelsey is there.
Kelsey is a Community Health Instructor at a private medical school. She teaches topics such as advocacy in healthcare, generational trauma and behavioral health.
She enjoys being immersed in nature with her small but mighty family, drinking chai with her dear friends, practicing yoga, and endlessly attempting to be more present in the here and now.
