Kimberly is a DONA trained Birth Doula. She has been a nurse and a Reiki Master/Teacher since 2002. She was a registered aromatherapist from 2002-2007 through the Aromatherapy Registration Council. Kimberly learned the art of massage in the late 90’s. In 2011 she completed a Newborn Care Specialist course and started the journey to caring for healthy babies and their mommas. As a newborn care specialist she has had the opportunity to work with high profile clients in the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Her interests in holistic therapies lead her to become a HypnoBirthing® Practitioner and a Hypnobabies Hypnodoula. She is a HypnoBirthing® educator and has taught locally at Harmony in Campbell.
Kimberly believes in working synergistically within your team, to enhance your birth experience. Facilitating the achievement of the birth you want where all members work towards the same goal, a calm and gentle birth with a healthy mom and baby. Her role is to support you on this special journey and provide guidance as needed and requested. To ensure you feel that you can make the best choices for you and your baby, she will encourage you to do so by asking the right questions, so that your birth will unfold the way you desire and with you in full control. Kimberly is passionate about caring for newborns and their parents. She is dedicated to educating parents and developing their confidence in how to successfully care for their babies. Kimberly attains this through personalized attention and dedication. Empowering parents is a core value and goal. In true collaboration, Kimberly supports the decisions a mother, her partner and her doctor or midwife make during pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester.
Kimberly is an east coast native and currently resides in Campbell. While in nursing school she learned about becoming a doula in the late 90s. She has since come full circle to her calling. Kimberly has found caring for mothers using hypnosis during childbirth to be incredibly rewarding and has seen first hand how they benefit greatly. She is trained as a HypnoBirthing educator and a Hypnobabies Doula. Kimberly also supports clients using the Gentle Birth program, a birth prep course for moms who would like to use mindfulness and sports psychology in birth.
Best wishes to you for a most calm and gentle birthing!
