Kimberly Ann Johnson

Kimberly Ann Johnson is a doula, Sexological Bodyworker, Somatic Experiencing practitioner, postpartum care advocate and single mom.

Kimberly graduated Valedictorian in the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University. A longtime yoga teacher, yoga teacher trainer, and bodyworker, she was permanently rearranged in body, mind and spirit, when she sustained an injury during childbirth. Determined not to get full pelvic floor reconstructive surgery, she traveled the world learning about postpartum practices.

After healing herself, she dedicated herself to helping women through this important and overlooked phase of development that is the postpartum period. As is taught in many traditional cultures, she believes that when nurtured and taken care of properly, women can emerge from this rite of passage stronger, more whole, and with more access to their power. She believes the same is true of relationship, that with the right tools, marriages and partnerships can be more connected and robust after children. For this reason, she wrote The Fourth Trimester: A Postpartum Guide to Healing Your Body, Balancing Your Emotions, and Restoring Your Vitality to be published by Shambhala Press in December 2017.

Kimberly has a private practice in Encinitas and Los Angeles, CA specializing in birth injuries, birth trauma, and sexual health. She is the co-founder of the School for Postpartum Care, where she trains birth professionals, bodyworkers, and somatic therapists to help women with prolapse, incontinence, painful sex and other pelvic floor and gynecological issues. Her most outstanding accomplishment is being a single mom to fiery 10-year-old, Brazilian daughter, Cecilia.
