Kimberly Johnson is a birth doula, Certified Sexological Bodyworker and near-certified Somatic Experiencing therapist. She specializes in birth injury, birth trauma, post-partum recovery and sexual healing.
Before dedicating her life to helping women emerge through the childbirth and motherhood process more whole, she was a full-time yoga teacher, yoga teacher trainer and Structural Integration practitioner. She has taught classes and trained teachers all over the world since 1999.
Her own difficult post-partum healing process, where she experienced searing back and SI pain, incontinence, hemorrhoids and painful sex, led her to a path of exploring what she calls the black hole of women's health: the post-partum period. Told she needed a full pelvic floor reconstruction, she committed herself to healing holistically. Along the way she met Ellen Heed, who was conducting a research project on post-partum scar tissue remediation. In three sessions, the hemorrhoids reabsorbed, her abdominal wall knitted back together, and she returned to joyful painfree sex. Already a bodyworker, she was determined to learn this work and to help as many women as possible navigate the post-birth process with far more support and far less suffering than she experienced. Founder of MagaMama.com, she is currently at work on a book about the physical, emotional, spiritual, and sexual aspects of becoming a mother.
