“Kimberly handled the work of 3 people with a smile on her face and a happy, positive demeanor.”
Kimberly is amazing. If you have seen supernanny, picture her as a superdoula for the whole family dynamic. She came into our lives in the middle of chaos: a newborn, 5-year old sibling, dad out of town, extended family sick/unavailable, and mom recovering from a C-section with post partum mood issues.
She provided every type of support imaginable, from reminding mom to rest, eat, and drink (including preparing healthy snacks and making grocery lists) to showering the 5-year old with much needed special attention, to getting the dad back “into the fold” and involved in baby care. Her baby soothing skills are fantastic, and she has endless patience. She even provided gentle, on-point referrals to medical professionals as needed and came to the newborn’s first medical appointments. Kimberly was like a human alarm clock overnight, dealing with the baby’s night feedings and soothing and reminding mom to wake up to pump, stay hydrated, rest, and eat right.
Kimberly handled the work of 3 people with a smile on her face and a happy, positive demeanor. We are now back on track as a family of four. My only wish is that we could incorporate her into our family 24/7 for the next 5 years.

“I definitely plan on using Kimberly’s services for baby #2 due in August!”
I don’t know what I would have done without Kimberly’s expertise when I was a first-time mom with little newborn experience. She helped me balance the baby’s needs with my own (such as sleeping and eating), and she helped build my confidence that I was doing things correctly! The resources she offered were so valuable to our needs- from lactation consultant referrals to general newborn care. I definitely plan on using Kimberly’s services for baby #2 due in August!

I can’t express enough how happy our family is to have Kim in our lives!! She is so professional and at same time completely passionate, personable and comforting. Kim brings quality care, knowledge and positive energy our way every time we see her.
Our family situation is unique… My husband and I both work jobs that require us to travel for extreme long periods at time. Of course as the new mom, I’m not doing that now, and Dad has gone back to work 3 wks after our daughter Izzy was born. We always had concern for me dealing with the drastic change of pace and being a first time mom alone most of the time. Kim saved me! She brought my confidence level as a mom to a place I couldn’t imagine, helped me with lactation tips, and my overall postpartum health is better than I thought it would be. Izzy absolutely adores her and I couldn’t ask for a more trustworthy caregiver on our home. Thank you Kim for all that you do! We love and highly recommend Kim & L.A. Doula Care!!!!
We had Kimberly as our post partum doula this year (2015) and cannot say enough good things about her. She is a lovely person, always cheerful and bright, and was an absolute wonder with our baby, Eddie.
Kimberly was also a great help to us, Mom and Dad, with all our crazy questions and worries. And was super with our 2 yr old.
In sum, she is just a professional through and through and also a wonderful and kind person to have on your side in this tricky time.
Also, ask her to bake you some of her delicious lactation cookies!!
