About the Doula

Kelly Kolb, certified birth doula and postpartum doulaI’m Kelly Kolb, CD(DONA), PCD(DONA). I am a DONA-trained and certified birth doula (labor doula) and postpartum doula located in Glenside, Abington Township and serving Montgomery County, Bucks County, Philadelphia, and the Main Line. I meet mothers where they are and support them through the birth experience and parenting experience THEY choose. I enjoy helping mothers find their “village” of support and caring as they undergo one of the biggest times of change in their lives. I help parents feel confident in their abilities to succeed and nurture their growing family long after my services have been completed.

I have completed my trainings and certifications as a birth and postpartum doula with DONA. I have also completed DONA’s Childbirth for the Doula, a lactation management course from Lactation Education Resources, Evidence Based Birth courses in How to Help Families Get Evidence-Based Care, Friedman’s Curve and Failure to Progress, and Due Dates and Advanced Maternal Age, Advanced Massage in Labor from Berri Healthy, and I am American Red Cross certified in adult and pediatric CPR and first aid. I have also completed training as a birth & bereavement doula with Stillbirthday.

I’m a proud mother to a kindergartener and love to travel, cook, read, and sew.
