Hello! My name is Kristen Navia. I’m a wife, mother of four, Certified Lactation Counselor, and Doula.
I grew up in the Fresno area and moved back in early 2016 after the birth of my first set of twins. I’ve always felt a calling to babies and new families as a young woman. I didn’t know how much support I would need and want during my first pregnancy. After that experience, I knew that I wanted things to be different for my next birth. Being in a different city, I connected with the local birth workers to learn everything I could. I hired a doula for my second pregnancy, went to La Leche League meetings and found other families with multiples to share life with. I fell in love with birth work and the support of all the women around me. When my second set of twins were born, it was a life-changing experience having an outpouring of support and a sense of community around me. This gave me the desire to become an active member of this community myself, as a doula and CLC, and volunteering as the president for the Fresno County Multiples Club.
After my trainings with DONA and Fresno Birth and Baby, I knew I found the right work for me. My goal is for all families to feel support and to have a village around them. We were not meant to birth and raise children alone.
