Nurtured Roots

Kaylin Smith, Birth and Early Childhood Companion

About Me

I remember being 5 years old and begging to be allowed to babysit. In middle school, I read all the "How to babysit" books I could find in the school library. My senior year in high school I spent many of my afternoons as a mother's helper. That fascination with caring for babies bled into a desire to care for others as I got older. In high school I earned my Certified Nursing Assistant License and moved on to working in geriatric rehabilitation and private home health. From there I earned my degree in Early Care and Education while I nannied for families all around the midlands. It wasn't much longer before the birth bug bit me. I have been working as a birth doula and photographer since 2016, serving the South Carolina midlands through hospital, birth center, and home births. Homebirth stole my heart and I am now in pursuit of becoming a Certified Professional Midwife.


As the founder of Nurtured Roots, I am passionate about helping mothers connect with their maternal wisdom and promote a healthy and natural lifestyle for themselves and their families. My approach to mother care is centered around holistic health, and I believe in the power of plant medicine and other natural remedies to support maternal health. Through attachment parenting and family-centered care, I aim to provide mothers in South Carolina with the knowledge, resources, and care they need to raise healthy, happy families. Contact me today to learn more about my services! I believe that to heal the world, first we have to heal our births. Whether it is for a quick call for guidance, or the full package, I look forward to serving you soon.
