Klarque believes that life is about learning, growing, giving, helping, and, most importantly, loving — she believes these attributes are critical to who we are as human beings. Klarque feels called to help and support others; through listening ears, compassion, and care, she aids in helping clients’ birth experiences be not only self-fulfilling and relaxing, but pleasant and memorable experiences to look back on. In addition to her professional doula training, Klarque has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in business management from Grambling State University. She has recently moved to Iowa from Houston, TX and currently lives in Ankeny. When not serving clients, Klarque enjoys yoga and vegan cooking and loves experimenting with new dishes. She is also interested in herbalism and would like to one day become an herbalist. Klarque strives to provide clients with physical, mental, and emotional comfort and to help them feel confident and prepared regarding their baby and birth. She provides Labor and Birth Support services to Doulas of Des Moines’ clients.
