A doula is a non-medical birth professional who is specifically trained to support a birthing person emotionally, physically, and educationally during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. Prioritizing informed decision-making, client autonomy, and self-advocacy, a doula provides choices, comfort, and continuous support, using a variety of skills and techniques.

Welcome everyone! I'm so excited you're here. I'm Kelsey (she/her), a certified birth doula, and postpartum doula serving the Colorado Springs area. After giving birth to my own sweet babe in 2020 I became passionate about all things birth, specifically about helping other birthing parents feel informed, supported, and brave in their birthing choices.
Originally a Midwesterner, I've called Colorado Springs home for 7 years and I live here with my husband, my daughter, and 3 fur babies. In my spare time I like to hike, read, and drink tea on my patio. I love the smell of pine trees and I'm currently very into houseplants.
