Meet the Doulas
Kelly Liska is a doula and teacher living in Oxford Pennsylvania. She is half-French and trilingual, speaking French and Spanish. Her passion for pregnancy and birth stems from early childhood- dating back to looking through her mother’s birthing books under the covers at night.
Kelly’s path into birth work began when she was called upon to support a friend through her labor and delivery, as her family was unable to be present. Observing firsthand the strength and grace with which her friend birthed, Kelly’s life was forever changed. She was enamored by the ability to take part in the beautiful labor and birth process. She enrolled in a doula certification program through Birth Arts International later that same week.
Her calming presence and intuitive approach have served as vital assets in the births she’s participated in. Kelly specializes in rebozo and relaxation techniques. She works hard to ensure that each client feels respected, supported, and empowered as she and her family embark on the newest chapter of their lives.
In her spare time, Kelly volunteers her services at New Expectations, a group home for pregnant women in need of a care and acceptance. This work is important to her as these women come from complicated situations and many end up laboring alone. The ability to be a major source of positivity and comfort to these women is incredibly rewarding. She also enjoys knitting, cooking, and traveling.
Kelly will soon begin training to become a midwife’s assistant. She’s always interested in opportunities to further her education and meet other impassioned people through birth work. One day she aspires to become a midwife in order to provide a wide range of support options to her clients in various settings.
