"I found Lissah literally one week before I birthed and I have to express my ultimate gratitude to Lissah, The Creatress. My situation was a unique one and I had given up hope on finding a Black birth worker that would be by my husbands and I side as we birthed our daughter at home. However, Lissah was most understanding and so very flexible. I felt from our first moments speaking with each other, her sincerity and how she genuinely wanted to offer her services to me. For that I’m forever grateful because she was needed. Her flexibility, attentiveness, expertise and spirit helped create the birth experience I could’ve only dreamed of and she has made sure that I’ve been equipped with the tools I’d need to survive postpartum successfully. Even though I was only able to experience a shortened portion of what she offers, I would highly recommend her to any mother looking for a birth worker so that they can gain the full experience of her services. My husband and I can only speak of her praises and cannot express how thankful we were for her to be apart of such a monumental point in our lives."

"Khia has been my 'life doula' over the past year.  Her doula-to-doula support has been such a wonderful resource. She has supported me while I supported births that were triggering or otherwise difficult. She's listened and talked me through my various life transitions- the constant births and deaths and (rebirths) of life.

She's pulled cards for me, said prayers for me, and deeply inspired me. I'm infinitely grateful for her support and sisterhood."

"My greatest accomplishment was this labor of love! Thank you so much, Lissah, for EVERYTHING!!! From the very first conversation to postpartum visits Lissah has been of amazing support and calming energy. I wouldn't have been able to reach my goal without her. No matter the birthing plan for any mom, I'll always recommend a doula, specifically HER! We thank you Lissah!!!"

"Lissah is a phenomenal Birth Keeper, Community Root Woman and her capacity to hold emotional, mental and physical space for the families she supports is the reclamation of our gifts that the ancestors prayed for. To work alongside Lissah is to know that you and your family will be held with care, respect, balance and honesty. She has empowered me so much on my own Birth Keeping journey as well as my motherhood journey and the sisterhood that has grown from our knowing one another has helped me navigate joys as well as difficulties with grace that at times seemed impossible to find without her support. She helped us bring our son safely into this world and our family is forever grateful to have known and been supported by her."
