My path to birth work was inspired by supporting many close friends and family during their labor and delivery experiences.

Karma is a Birth & Postpartum Doula & Yoga instructor. She teaches Gentle & Restore classes, which is just as it sounds, a gentle flow of asana coupled with moments of settling into a posture to allow the body to feel restored. Her HIIT Yoga class is the complete opposite with a high energy hip-hop playlist to encourage fun while you work hard and sweat. In 2018 Karma read an article about the increasing black maternal mortality rate in the NY Times. She felt connected to the story since her own pregnancy could have had a dark outcome. At that moment Karma decided she wanted to assist mothers with their prenatal and postpartum experience, by becoming a doula and receiving her doula certification with Mama Glow. Karma believes that every expectant mother should have a doula, regardless of their family make-up. Contact
