About the doula
Kim is a certified birth doula (DONA International) and serves birthing people and their families in the greater Statesboro-Bulloch County area and surrounding region. A perinatal mental health advocate and active volunteer of Postpartum Support International - Georgia Chapter, Kim places special emphasis on supporting an individual’s emotional well-being during childbearing. She understands how important this aspect of health is in fostering personal and familial wellness and uses this as a guide in her practice. In addition, Kim has trained further in the physical aspects of labor, including Spinning Babies® and rebozo use.
Kim is pursuing her Master of Public Health at Georgia Southern University with a concentration in Community Health. With a background in community engagement and nonprofit work, Kim earned a graduate certificate in Nonprofit Administration from the University of West Florida after graduating with a degree in anthropology and French from the University of Alabama. It was in college that Kim began to appreciate the transformative, empowering nature of birth and the significance of birth work. Her enthusiasm for birth and perinatal mental health remained a personal pursuit for many years until her move to Statesboro in the summer of 2017, at which point she began her professional birth work. Together with their cats, Kim and her husband, John, live in Statesboro.
