Kailah D. King-Collins, MPH, CHES®


My name is Kailah (pronounced like Kayla). My pronouns are she/her/hers and I am from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am a  traveling doula; I primarily serve Philadelphia, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale but I have the ability to travel within the United States for in-person support and the capacity to provide virtual services nationwide!

As your doula I am here to be a source of peace during your pregnancy, birth and postpartum periods. My priority is to provide the resources and information you need to confidently give life to your best possible birthing experience.

The duty of a doula is to be a continuous source of knowledge, encouragement, and support (both emotional and physical) for birthers. As your doula I will advocate for you but will also work with you to create strategies for self-advocacy. 

I am a graduate of East Stroudsburg University of PA with BS in Public Health and West Chester University of PA with an MPH in Community Health. I am also a certified health education specialist with the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing. I am a BLS/Heartsaver® Instructor under the American Heart Association, and a certified infant massage instructor under the World Institute for Nurturing Communication. 


I unofficially started my work in public health during undergrad at East Stroudsburg. I was a peer educator on campus and for my senior project decided to focus on HIV/AIDS awareness. In grad school I continued to focus on HIV/AIDS and other health topics as they related to sexual/reproductive health and pregnancy. I officially began my work in public health as a biometric screener then transitioned into the work of HIV/AIDS. I started out as an HIV and STI tester, then became a linkage navigation specialist. 

Sexual and reproductive health education peaked my interest long before my formal education. After learning about birth and postpartum outcomes for black and brown birthers during my graduate studies I knew that at some point in my public health career I would do something to change the narrative; I decided to answer the call to birth work in December 2019. I hold several certifications, have completed trainings and am committed to continued education so that I can best serve clients. I am all about creating a sense of community; I have invested in a mentor and continuously work to find the best resources, information and supplemental services for my clients. Some of the current certifications and trainings I have completed include:

  • Trained doula. Facilitated by Womb Intensive Systematic Holistic Care LLC 

  • Certified Health Education Specialist 

  • BLS/Heartsaver® Instructor offering Pediatric & Adult CPR certification (American Heart Association)
