Upon giving birth with her midwife and doula in her home three times, Kevina found a passion and movement to become a doula professional. She has dedicated her time and energy into speaking with women and their partners about birthing from a “intentional birthing perspective”. In 2021 she was presented with the opportunity to become a Labor Doula, Breastfeeding, and Post Partum Doula Professional through Community Calling, Inc. Life has never been the same. She every mother has the ability to create her birthing story, one that does not leave a mother with a traumatic experience, to be passed down generation to generation. Birthing is a fluid, humble, and empowering experience, being a Doula allows mothers to be exposed to an ancient culture of women communing in the highest Rites of Passage of Womanhood as a Mother! Kevina’s motto is “Every mother requires the sacred space to birth her family though intentional birthing perspective, therefore every mother deserves a Doula!”
