Birth is a powerful, raw and transformative experience. Kiera’s priority is to work with her clients closely throughout pregnancy so they are educated, supported and mindful of the experience ahead.
“My loved ones who were present for the birth later referred to Kiera as the doula “fairy“ and I think that is a perfect description of her presence. She calmly floated through our home, following me through the intense waves of birth and ensuring that I felt cared for and attended to during each one. Her passion for birth work shines through her words and actions and I am very fortunate that her loving energy was a part of my baby’s entrance into the world. Kiera turned out to be the puzzle piece that I didn’t know was missing from our birth team, and I could not be more grateful that we found her.”
