Hello, my name is Kira Kimble and I am a Birth Arts International Certified Doula and Doula Trainer. I am an informative resource, source of support, and labor coach for pregnant individuals and their partners. I became a doula in 2012 to help people have gratifying and empowering childbirth experiences. I have been married for 19 years and have 4 children. Prior to raising my family, I worked in marketing for almost 10 years at The Charlotte Observer, The Gaston Gazette and The Winston-Salem Journal. I grew up in Erie, PA. I attended Phillips Academy in Andover, MA and then earned a degree in business from Wake Forest University. I enjoy sports, music and languages. I studied Japanese and Spanish in college and doula for families in English and Spanish.
