Meet Kelly Johnson
Kelly Johnson, BNRN, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Certified Birth Doula (DONA), Period of PURPLE Crying Educator, and ICEA Educator, has 15+ years of professional experience in maternity, labour and delivery, paediatrics, neonatal intensive care, and home care. She studied nursing and began her career in New Brunswick, Canada, where her family still resides. She moved to Grand Cayman in 2006 for adventure and to expand her experience in NICU nursing.
After having her first child, Samuel, at 32 weeks, she and her husband realized how little support there was in Cayman for new families. They were introduced to Claire Hendricksen, by a mutual friend, who had offered support care to new families in the Netherlands, Ireland and Singapore. With collaboration Baby Whisperers was born. They were postpartum doulas with an edge! Their nursing background and being mothers make them the most advanced support system for new families here in Cayman.
Kelly has continued to study and build her skills and services that she offers through Baby Whisperers. She has traveled twice to California to study under the award winning Doula and Childbirth Educator, Anna Paula Markel of Bini Birth. Her ultimate goal is to help couples have the knowledge and support for a positive birth experience and increase their joy and confidence of becoming parents.
