Esther Nyokabi Kimani, Lactation and Infant Care specialist

Around 8 years ago, I found myself managing a difficult pregnancy with my first child. While on doctor-prescribed bed rest for most of my pregnancy, I prepared for my newborn by extensively researching on infant care. However, despite all this knowledge, my baby was born small and anaemic and she had major challenges breastfeeding for nearly a month. Without any resources like a lactation specialist, I persevered, and finally the baby took to the breast and began to thrive. As a result of this experience, I developed a passion for supporting other mums through their journey of pregnancy, birth and the post natal period.

Today, I am a Certified Doula, Trained Lactation Manager, Certified Infant Massage Instructor and Infant and Young child Nutrition Counsellor. My clients straddle the economic divide and I offer both hospital birth support and home based pre and postnatal doula services. This entails lactation management, establishing routines, infant and young child nutrition and general infant care.
