My Birth Philosophy
My philosophy is to support yours by helping to maintain and create the birthing atmosphere that you wish to have. I advocate for you through intense moments of labor and support your brilliant way of bringing life into the world.
I believe every life is a miracle. Your body is absolutely amazing.
You were made and chosen to bring this life into the world and it is a privilege to support you in this process.
Through every step of the journey my goal is for you to feel loved, supported, valued and knowledgeable about your birth experience.
As a doula I offer evidence-based resources and help you feel in control of your birth experience.
Birth is a beautiful process that can bring varying challenges. As a DONA trained doula I aim to bring the highest level of care, evidence-based practices, education and support to your family and experience.
As a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) mom and someone who has experienced personal birth trauma, I know exactly what it can mean for someone to simply understand. Through my own healing and process of achieving my VBAC I have acquired much education and passion on the subject.
If you are considering a VBAC birth or simply wish to learn more, please don't hesitate to reach out.
I am a christian doula. I believe every person I come in contact with is loved and created with purpose. As women we were designed to bring life into the world, and that is a beautiful calling.
I am originally from Alaska and have lived in Kitsap for six years. My husband and I have two little adventurous boys. I deeply enjoy my nespresso in the morning and spending time with my community of friends and family.

Mikala was at the HBAC (home birth after cesarean) of my second son. Her calm demeanor, paired with the joy and passion she has for birth, is a win-win! I highly recommend her as a doula for anyone hoping to have a natural birth. She's wonderful!
Birth isn't something we suffer, but actively do and exult in."
