"When we birth, we don't just birth babies. We birth ourselves, we birth our families, and we reshape our lives." - Sarah Wickham
Every expecting parent deserves to have someone there to guide and assist them in making educated choices about their pregnancy. Instagram has some great tips and that may have been how you find us but that customized support and care we bring will impact your birth experience in a positive way. We focus on preparing our parents with emotional, physical, spiritual, and educational support in an attempt to create a space of confidence and peace when it is time to birth your baby.
Every birth is different, every parent's needs are different so we focus on that initially after you book with us, then we get into the educating and preparation that you need. Whether it is all childbirth basics and expectations because you are nervous about giving birth for the first time or going through your options and teaching your birth partner how to advocate for you because you are trying to have a VBAC. Your doula is here for you every way that I can for a positive empowered birth experience.
We always feel so honored to be able to share our expertise with women and families in St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay and across the U.S. We approach birth holistically with evidence-based info. Besides providing physical and emotional support during labor, it is important to us to also teach dads to advocate for the birthing woman and their family.
By combining faith, confidence and so much more, I believe we will be a great fit to achieve the birth memories you deserve. You could be feeling a range of emotions that led you here and you should be proud of yourself for finding a doula. Hiring a doula for your family is the first step to being in control of your birth and body.
"I love working with babies and parents! I have over a decade of experience with ages 0-3 but I couldn't ignore the moments I felt called to have a greater and deeper impact on families. Shortly after, I witnessed my first birth and realized I was a doula without even knowing it! Being a safe space for women as they endure life changing moments means the world to me. As a witness of birth, when it is supported correctly with the mother at the center.. the space feels holy to me. We can only estimate or assume when it's going to begin until it actually does. Even then there's no way to say when it will start and finish. Only God, the baby, and the mama know. They all work simultaneously together using physical signals & hormones only she and the baby can feel. Breathing together, moving together, a partnership. It's beautiful. " - Kyndall Cooper, Lead Doula, Owner of The Kynship
A few things you can find her doing for fun include relaxing at the beach, doing yoga, or trying new vegan recipes & listening to Maverick City Music.
“I became a doula because I can be a voice for others who may not think they have one. Being a doula is like being a protector, a nurturer, a big sister to hold and encourage you during difficult and life changing moments. Women can certainly do it on their own, but I believe in making this sacred, divine experience one that you will reflect on and celebrate. I am here to serve women and empower them with the tools, belief & guidance they need to have the supernatural birth God designed us to have.” - Zoe Scott, Back Up Doula in Training
