Postpartum Doula Profile


Stephanie Kiesow, MA, MPH, CLE

Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Educator

The postpartum period is a time of magnificent growth and expansion. For those of us who are just becoming parents, or are already parents, it can be a great time to call on community and build up a network of support.

As a trained postpartum doula (DONA) and experienced newborn care educator, my goal is to assist you with your needs, which may look slightly different for each person. Working together, we can create a specialized plan for you and your family. Some components of postpartum care that may be of interest include: feeding assistance, baby-wearing, newborn care, navigating breastfeeding and the workplace, and creating developmentally appropriate activities for your little one.

I received both a Master of Arts in Developmental Psychology and a Master of Public Health degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. In support of my own breastfeeding journey and to assist others, I am a Lactation Educator, certified through the University of California, San Diego.

I look forward to connecting with you!
