Kristalyn Martin


   Certified Doula

Welcome to Peaceful Presence Birth Services, LLC. I'm so glad you stopped by! My name is Kristalyn Martin and I am a DONA Certified Doula serving San Antonio, TX and the surrounding areas. I am a Christian, the seventh of twelve children, and my greatest joy is being the wife to my amazing husband, Daniel and Auntie to 19 nieces and nephews - and counting!

As I reflect back on my life to pinpoint the start of my journey into the birth world, I can't help but notice how intricately woven God's plan is in my life...


  “The way a woman gives birth can affect the whole of the rest of her life. 

      How can that not matter? Unless the woman herself does not matter”.


~Beverly Beech and Belinda Phipps


What is a Doula?

“DOULA” comes from the Greek language and translates to English as “a woman who serves”. Doulas serve in a non-medical capacity and provide informational, physical, and emotional support before, during, and immediately following the arrival of the new baby.

Benefits of a Doula

  • Decreased the risk of Cesarean

  • Increased the likelihood of a spontaneous vaginal birth

  • Decreased the use of any medications for pain relief

  • Shorter labors by 41 minutes on average

  • Higher Apgar scores

  • Decreased the risk of being dissatisfied with the birth experience
