What the people have to say...
I have been thinking of you heavily! I really want to say thank you for being by my side throughout the process of Knovi's delivery. Words cannot explain what you have done for me and what you made me feel. You are truly a blessing. I appreciate you and find you to be so remarkable it's overwhelming. I never thought I would see it all the way through and yet you made me feel like I could. I wish I can do more than say thank you! You deserve an award girl lol a house where you can make your magic.
Mikaela stepped in as a postpartum doula when our little girl was 3-weeks old. She was wonderful. A competent, soothing presence for both baby and mama. A good sense of humor and sweet disposition. I highly recommend her!
Mikaela’s presence as our doula provided the strength, knowledge, and support we needed to bring our baby into the world. The awareness and stability she brought to the birth made all the difference. I felt held and heard throughout the entire process and am eternally grateful to have had her by our side. - Raegan L.
We knew that pregnancy would be difficult for us to navigate after two previous losses. What we didn’t budget for was a literal pandemic, plus being classed as high risk due to gestational diabetes. Mikaela helped us navigate the uncertainties. She helped us come up with a plan A, B and C by listening to our concerns and providing us with ALL the info we could possibly need to make the best choices for our family. Even though Mikaela couldn’t be physically present with us due to COVID, she connected with us via virtual childbirth classes, Zoom calls to help us with birth planning, and she FaceTimed with us while we were in labor! She also helped equip my partner to be “Daddy doula” since she wouldn’t be present, by equipping him with all the questions to ask and coaching him on comfort measures. Mikaela went above and beyond for us, and I honestly cannot imagine our birth without her fierce presence.
Mikaela brings warmth, kindness and enthusiasm to her practice as a doula. She has a vast library of resources for whatever question or concern you may have, and if she doesn't have something on hand she is willing to go out and find it. During the delivery she was a calming and supportive force who collaborated very well with hospital staff to ensure I had the birth I wanted. Despite being constrained by the pandemic, she was still able to provide ample support leading up to, during and after my delivery.
