Hello! I’m Kimberly Isburg, a trained professional postpartum doula and birth story writer. I help new families have sweeter beginnings by providing physical, emotional, and informational support in the weeks and months after welcoming a new baby into their lives.
I live in the Des Moines area with my husband, Sam, and our two boys (Jack, 5, and Henry, 2). I studied journalism at Drake University and worked as a writer and editor before starting my postpartum doula business. I’m also a contributor to the Des Moines Mom’s Blog and a member of the Central Iowa Doula Association.
As a postpartum doula, I’m an “expert in normal.” It’s my job to support you and your family in your choices, to ease your concerns, and to connect you to education and evidence-based information and resources along the way.
I completed my training through the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, in 2018 and I am currently working on certification. You can view my CAPPA profile here.
I’m passionate about helping new parents during this very important transition in their lives. I also believe in the power of helping women to celebrate and process their birth experiences through storytelling.
I am a helper and an advocate by nature, and I am passionate about caring for new moms, new babies and families during the postpartum period. I truly feel this is the work I was meant to do!
