Hello families! I'm Kimberly, born in L.A., raised in Ojai and Carpinteria. I'm an advocate of physiological birth, an empath, yogi, writer, skier, volleyball player, book collector, and nature lover, to name a few things about me.
I am mother to Travis Malcolm, Sadie Bella, and Piper Pearl. I have three radically different birth stories, and am always eager to share. I'm a wife to my soul-mate Mike, who is a mid-western, salt of the earth kinda guy.
I owe my love of birth to my own mother, who has always instilled in me the beauty of babies, breastfeeding, and mothering. Being the eldest of five, I was part of each of my siblings birth, creating a quiet livelong dream of birth-work, that has now manifested into a dream come true, a thriving business, that supports women from all walks of life, birthing in all different situations.
Education & Credentials:
I am a Doula (CD-DONA-in progress), Lactation Educator (Birth Arts International-BEC), and Placenta Specialist(PBI). I am also the Director of Warmline, for Postpartum Education for Parents, otherwise known as PEP. In addition, I have a degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences, and I hold multiple certificates, including an EMT cert., CPR/First Aid, Blood Borne Pathogen's cert., through OSHA, and in early 2017 completed the Postpartum Action Institute's weekend certificate course with Dr. Shoshana Bennett, Ph.D, and Jane Honikman of PSI.
