Hi there! My name is Katie Wakonyo Taylor Rice.

Through my own experience of giving birth to my rainbow baby, I have witnessed firsthand the benefits of a doula’s support.  Since then, I have become a certified birth doula through DONA International, childbirth educator, and owner of UZIMA Birth Services.

It is my life's passion to work with and serve birthing people as they navigate pregnancy, birth and postpartum.  I believe every birthing person deserves a doula, no matter how their baby enters this world.  I also believe knowledge is power and enjoy helping my clients find the resources they need to make confident, informed decisions they can feel good about.

Whether I’m helping a client locate evidence-based information about inductions, reminding a support person to eat or rest during a birth, or holding a new parent’s precious baby so they can take their first shower at home, it is always a great honor and my pleasure to help however I can.
