Hi loves! I am Kim Lee-Okonya, passionately known as Kim LO The Doula. Thank you for visiting my website…I am so happy you’re here! Welcome!
How exciting I imagine it is for you to prepare to embark on this new journey.
If you’re visiting my page I am assuming
you are preparing for the birth of a beautiful being! Whether this is your first baby or your sixth each pregnancy presents a different journey. My goal as a birth doula is to mother the mother while also providing support to the entire unit surrounding her as she prepares, births and begins the new journey of becoming a mother. In the delivery room I am mindful that not only is a beautiful baby born but so is a mother and a father/ partner. I want dad/ partner to also feel like an integral part in this beautiful process as well.
I am a DONA trained birth doula and I am on track to obtaining my certification with DONA International.
I believe birth is 80% mental. Our minds are the most powerful things our bodies possess. As a Licensed Mental Health Clinician and owner of Life Begins Here Therapeutic & Counseling Services, LLC (www.LifeBeginsHereTherapeuticAndCounselingServices.com) which houses my mental/ behavioral health private practice and birth doula services, I know first hand just how essential a positive mindset is. I want to empower my mamas to know that they are able to do what they were created to do. And to do so beautifully, bravely and how they desire the experience to be. I am a mother of two, one who was born by an emergency cesarean and the other via a unmedicated, Doula attended VBAC (vaginal birth after a cesarean). I am a testament to how you can birth how you want; there are options for you! I have experienced firsthand the enormous difference and positive results having the right team around you throughout this journey can yield you.
I look forward to walking alongside you and your family on this life changing journey and creating beautiful memories along the way.
Love & Light,
