About the doula
Kim is a trained birth doula certifying through DONA International and serving mothers and their families in the greater Statesboro-Bulloch County area and surrounding regions. Though always indescribably moved by the meaningful impact of birth growing up, it was in college that Kim began to fully appreciate the transformative, empowering nature of birth and the significance of birth work. Her enthusiasm for birth and perinatal maternal 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.
Kim is a dedicated proponent of a mother’s intuition to approach childbirth how she desires so that her birth leaves a lasting positive impression on her and her family. Indeed, Kim holds this viewpoint as fundamental in supporting a mother’s emotional and psychological well-being. She understands how important these aspects of health are in fostering personal and familial wellness. As a perinatal mental health advocate, Kim plans to seek further professional opportunities to expand her capacity to support maternal mental health throughout the prenatal and postpartum stages of parenthood.
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. Together with their cats, Kim and her spouse, John, live in Statesboro, where John is a professor at Georgia Southern University.
