kiera Curtis with gentle waves birth services

Hi, I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m Kiera Curtis CD(DONA) and I am a certified birth doula, providing doula services, birth photography and placenta encapsulation to expectant mothers in Hampton Roads. I am also rebozo certified and specialize in HypnoBirthing® techniques for a comfortable and manageable birth. I serve Williamsburg, Newport News, Yorktown, Hampton, Gloucester, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk and Portsmouth. It is of my utmost importance to provide unconditional emotional/physical support, education, resources and information during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. My goal is to create a positive birth experience where the mother feels, empowered, well informed, respected and comforted.

I have been a Hampton Roads native since 1995 and love everything the area has to offer. My husband and I met in 2013, and quickly knew we were going to get married and start a life together. We love adventure, traveling, great food, music, local parks, beaches and anything exhilarating. Whether it’s scuba diving on vacation or cooking a nice family meal and cuddling up on the couch, we simply appreciate life and enjoy spending it together as a family.

Together we have two children that were born at home. It was initially my in-depth preparation and first birth experience with my daughter that prompted me to pursue birth work. Witnessing first hand the extraordinary and transformative event that broght my daughter into the world was nothing I expected- it was more.  My birth experience and journey into motherhood changed my life in every positive way possible. I immediately knew that I wanted to do everything in my power to help other women achieve their birth goals. Helping to empower women bringing their babies into the world is by far one of the most gratifying experiences I have encountered. Being a birth doula & photographer is my passion, and I look forward to many more years of this work.

I fully understand how a birth plan can change in the blink of an eye, and I find it vital to help mothers and their partners remain calm and educated during challenging situations. I believe women are beautiful and strong creatures that are designed to birth their babies in whatever way they desire. As a doula, I support all births and wish to empower women during one of the most magical journeys they will ever experience. I am passionate about providing women with the tools they need during this transformative time and believe birth is something to be honored, respected and valued.
