We found Kira as we prepared for the birth of our first child. She is very warm, knowledgeable, supportive and flexible. When our birth plan went out the window, she helped us make informed decisions around moving forward with a c-section due to breech. There was no doubt that we wanted Kira with us when we attempted an unmedicated vbac. Throughout the second half of this pregnancy, she was once again very instrumental in helping us prepare. She coached us through both the labor and pregnancy experiences and really empowered us to work together toward the end goal- healthy baby and healthy mama! Like a coach, Kira gave the encouragement, instruction and caring straight-talk needed to get through our birth experience. We were fortunate to have her through both journeys. Kira was excellent the first time and awesome the second!
Finding Kira and having her as a doula for my 2nd birthing experience was everything I was hoping for and more. I had a very traumatic first birthing experience and really wanted my 2nd experience to be better. I found Kira by googling and could tell instantly from her webpage that she was the doula I was looking for. During my experience she was hands on, in the thick of it with me and is more than likely the reason that my baby girl was born. I had to be induced and if it hadn't of been for Kira I don't think this experience would have went as well as it did. I was experiencing a lot of back labor during my contractions and Kira was able to get the baby to turn to the right position. She was able to help my husband and myself during the whole process which made it so much better and more comfortable for both of us. She is very knowledgeable and skilled. I am very happy with my experience and would highly recommend Kira to any one!
Kira was my doula for the birth of my first child. I had researched the benefits of having Doula and it was very important for me to have additional support through out my pregnancy and birth. Kira and I met several times during my pregnancy to create my birth plan and review birthing positions with my husband. She reassured me constantly when I had doubts and reaffirmed my desire to have a natural birth. She was available via text and email, and checked in with me weekly (even though I often forgot) to receive updates on my and baby's health. I was 42 weeks pregnant when I was induced. Shortly after the doctor broke my water, Kira was there. Kira was phenomenal and never left my side! I know her maneuvers and suggested birthing positions encouraged my labor. She reassured me when I had doubts and encouraged me when I said I couldn't do this anymore. She ensured the medical staff respected my birthing wishes and advocated for me when I could not speak for myself. My son was delivered safely after 12 hours of labor. And even after he was here, Kira stopped by my home when I had breastfeeding issues. She corrected my latch and since then we've been breastfeeding seamlessly. Kira has such a special place in my family's heart. She's kind and thoughtful, competent, and so graceful. Whenever I'm blessed with my second little one, Kira has to be a part of the package. I highly recommend her if you're considering a doula.
I am writing on behalf of Kira Kimble, who was a TREMENDOUS source of support for me during the birth of my third child on October 14, 2014. Although this was my third baby, I was attempting a vaginal delivery after two CS. I consulted with Kira numerous times about methods to increase my chances of a vaginal delivery, as well as just overall wellness tips for myself and the baby. Kira was extremely thorough in her guidance as well as very sympathetic. She was a major cheerleader and source of encouragement, while also encouraging me not to have tunnel vision. She was easily available at any hour and her responses were always timely. I never felt like I was bothering her and she always gave me her full attention. I felt much more prepared for my birth because of Kira's support! :) If we were to have another baby, I would have no hesitations hiring Kira as my doula. I hope she is as amazing with you as she was with me!
I found Kira online after researching the benefits of having a doula. I had 1 daughter who is now 8 who was delivered by emergency c-section for failure to progress. After meeting Kira she was extremely supportive of my desire to VBAC. She gave me all the tools and resources I needed, and more to prepare for my 2nd child. I felt more than prepared for what my 2nd birth had in store for me. I had a few complications and lots of discomfort throughout the pregnancy that she was able to guide me through. She was able to reassure me through so many obstacles even changing doctors in my 9th month of pregnancy! Anytime I was unclear about things my Dr recommended, she was able to help me understand and even remind my Providers of what I desired for my birth. She did assist me in developing a birth plan, and even helped my family learn to support me throughout my process. With all my questions, and even doubting myself, she encouraged and supported me all the way. My birth didn't go as i desired, however, I could not have had a better support person on my birth team! I appreciated her support before, during, and after the birth! I would not hesitate to hire her as my doula in the future. She was always professional, and responded within a reasonable amount of time. I definitely recommend her services!
I decided to hire a doula for my 3rd pregnancy. I'm 37 years old and was not expecting to have another baby anytime soon. I have a 12yr old and 8yr old so starting over was not the plan. I decided to hire a doula because I wanted a all natural birth and after reading several reviews I decided to hire Kira Kimble. I saw her doula service page on Facebook. I'm so glad I hired her. She was there every step of the way. I could call her anytime with questions and she always had a great resource to send to me to back up whatever she told me. I got the all natural birth I wanted. My birth could not have been anymore perfect. I called Kira at 4am and she met me at the hospital. After only 4 hours of labor I delivered a healthy baby girl with no medication. I can't thank her enough for all the emotional, mental, and physical support she provided. She followed up with me within 2 weeks of delivery. She followed every step in her contract. If I have another child Kira will be my Doula of choice.
Was great to have Kira by my side, if I have another child I would choose her again.
Thanks to the wonderful support of our doula Kira Kimble. She was with us all along, she had been a great help before, during and after the birth of our son Théodore Vadim. Theodore is our first baby and Kira lovingly guided and supported us through the process and made the birth experience really great. We also really liked the notes Kira took documenting the process as we were obviously too busy ourselves-this helps us remember all of the details for the rest of our lives. If you are looking for a doula, we would highly recommend Kira Kimble.
