Kim Young | Postpartum Doula
Meet Kim Young!
Kim is a professionally trained Postpartum & Infant Care Doula.
Kim has been owner Sheryl Cooksley’s trusted “person” for over 25 years and brings her caring, “go-get-’em” nature to Family Tree Doula Services.
Kim has an extensive history as a loving caregiver. She has provided support for her disabled sister since she was 19 years old and been the trusted caregiver to others experiencing disabilities as well. She was a trained and approved respite provider through DHS for Clackamas County foster children. Kim spent several years as a volunteer at a local grade school, even earning the award of Volunteer of the Year. She served as an Officer on the school’s PTO and was the local Girl Scout Troop leader.
Kim is passionate about providing unconditional support to women and guiding them as they develop their confidence. She is compassionate to the core and won’t hesitate to sit with you while you cry on her shoulder. She may be small, but she is mighty! Kim loves babies and enjoys providing information that allows new families to develop a strong foundational support in their home. She admits that she is not the go-to cook on our team, but she is not short on ideas to help a family stay fed.
Kim is the mother of 3 and grandmother of 2. She loves living in rural Clackamas County with her family and dog, Ranger.
Kim believes it’s an honor to be welcomed into your family home during this vulnerable time and is excited to support new families in whatever way makes the most sense.
