Besides creating content for you here at Brighter Days, Darker Nights, I offer virtual and in-person care, live education, and support. You can learn more about my work at my website: https://nikkokennedy.com.
Alternatively, contact me here if you would like to chat with me about custom support with fertility, conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and breastfeeding. I work both in-person and virtually, always through a circadian and quantum biologic lens.
My first decade in perinatal work was spent supporting friends and family with prenatal and postpartum services, while I myself went through my early years as a mother. After health challenges gifted me the seeking that led to discovering circadian rhythms and the power of light to heal, I started Brighter Days, Darker Nights.
My focus on educating about circadian rhythms is new, but fits perfectly into the ultimate mission I have always had for my work around pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care:
Help you LOVE and TREASURE all parts of your motherhood experience. No matter the outcome, going through the very acts of trying to conceive, becoming pregnant, giving birth, and caring for a newborn are each transformative experiences in their own rights. You become a new person on the other side of each of these thresholds. Having doula support improves mothers' satisfaction, regardless of outcomes.
Support you in avoiding (or navigating) postpartum mood disorders. The challenges of the postpartum period can induce depression, or exacerbate previous mood disorders. Having doula support reduces the incidence of postpartum depression.
If you fail to conceive, have a miscarriage or a stillbirth, I will still support you in these same ways. These experiences are also motherhood experiences!

Alternatively, if you are a provider seeking information in order to help your clients, please email me through the link below. I offer in-person and virtual teaching, as well as the opportunity to collaborate on custom resources for your clients (fact-sheets, podcast interviews, etc.). Let me know what you have in mind!
I am a certified quantum biology practitioner, certified labor doula (CLD), and CAPPA-trained postpartum doula with a B.S. in General Science (pre-med with focus on biology and psychology) from the University of Oregon.
At present, I am working towards becoming certified as a Traditional Health Worker (THW) Birth Doula in order to better serve families locally in Josephine County, Oregon. The THW designation will give me the ability to bill Medicaid and Oregon Health Plan insurance policies for birth doula services (coming soon, hopefully by Fall of 2023). This certification is not required to deliver doula services privately in Oregon, only to bill insurance.
