New Orleans Doulas

Khayriyyah cutno

A New Orleans native, Khayriyyah (pronounced Ka-ree-yuh), is a doula impassioned with providing exceptional care for all clients.

New Orleans Doula

As co-owner of New Orleans Doulas, Khayriyyah is most proud of the quality of support that the agency brings to families in the Crescent City.

Khayriyyah's experience working with many families and children of all ages is a valuable asset to the clients she serves. However, she attributes most of her success as a doula to becoming a mother herself. Because this was such a pivotal moment in her life, she understands the importance of providing support to other growing families.

In addition to loving her work as a doula, Khayriyyah loves her son, Eli, naps, and 90's R&B.
