Kristen N. | Doula in Fresno, CA

Navia Doula & Lactation Services

    Practice overview

    I grew up in the Fresno area and moved away after graduating high school. My husband and I met in Ventura, where we had our first set of twins. We moved to Fresno when they were a few months old.  We had another set of twins 2 years later.  ​ After the birth of my first set of twins and the struggles to feed them, I knew I wanted a different outcome for my next pregnancy and postpartum period. I got connected with local birth workers and hired a doula. Having that support was so important for me. I was able to do things I never thought possible. My second set of twins were breastfed for years longer than I thought I'd be able to provide for them. During my journey through early motherhood, I saw the struggles of myself and friends. I found a passion for helping others. While doing my training to become a postpartum doula, I realized I also loved learning about breastfeeding. This ignited a fire for me to complete the certification process to become a lactation counselor as well.  You can find me in the community doing home visits or at Clovis Community Medical Center as a lactation specialist.​ In my free time, I love to travel the world with my family and also make frequent visits to Disneyland. I volunteer as president with the Fresno County Multiples Club, a 501c3 organization, and have held a board position since 2017.

    Care philosophy

    I believe that everyone should have the support they need, especially new parents. I have a passion for providing a space for all the highs and lows that come with being a caregiver. I know how empowering it feels when you receive the support and encouragement needed to provide for your family. I provide inclusive, non-judgmental evidence-based education and care.

    Pricing packages

    48 Hours Postpartum Support
    $ 35 /hr
    This is my most popular package. It includes up to 6 overnight support visits (8-hour minimum for overnight support) or 12 daytime visits (4-hour minimum per visit).

    Lactation Support
    $ 80
    In-person or virtual breastfeeding support. A visit typically lasts 1.5-2 hours so we can go over history and current issues. We talk about goals and work through changes that can be made to help you on your breastfeeding journey. For in-person visits, I will weigh baby before and after feedings. For both in person and virtual, we are able to do a flange fitting to make sure your pump fits properly. I provide a superbill so that you are able to request reimbursement from your medical insurance.
