A Birth to Remember
Kiera Langston, Birth Doula, CBS, CPE
I always say "every mother, baby & birth is different", but one thing has remained the same since the beginning of time; mothers and their partners need support. As a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist advocate & peer counselor, I have been supporting breastfeeding mothers for over 5 years. I recently sat out on this journey as a birth companion also known as a Doula to assist the birthing person and their partner/s hold space. I said that if I could help families regain confidence, reclaim their voice and help them make informed decisions on their journey through (m)otherhood, I would be doing something right.
I am a professionally DONA-trained Perinatal Doula
who journies with mothers and their partner during pregnancy, throughout labor, and after birth to provide emotional, physical and informational support regardless of gender or sex. I support families in every birth situation, whether it is medicated, unmedicated, hospital, home or birthing center. During pregnancy, I assist the family with discovering their concerns and preferences about childbirth and provide information about holistic and natural remedies to minor pregnancy discomforts. During labor, I focus on nurturing the laboring person, offering reassurance, comfort, and strength. After the birth, I help with breastfeeding and continue up follow up with the family for as little or as long as they see fit
I have been providing lactation counseling for over five years, servicing mothers all across the country. I consider myself a "lactivist" promoting breastfeeding for all, especially among marginalized people
I am a DONA trained Birth Doula. I offer non-clinical care for the birthing person and their partner. I use safe and gentle comfort measures to assist the laboring person.
Clients describe placenta encapsulation to increase postpartum mood, increase breastmilk supply amongst many other benefits.
