The journey to and through parenthood is a long and often bumpy road. Thankfully there are many ways to navigate this adventure and the most successful strategies will be the ones that you can adapt to your own goals, needs, and values.

Kaya has been doula-ing families through their pregnancies, births, and postpartum journeys since 2010 as a DONA trained Birth & Postpartum Doula and educating expecting families as a Childbirth Educator since 2015. She is passionate about providing resources to the Cowichan Valley community through her work as a co-founder of both the Mid-Island Doula Collective and their annual Journey to Light event, raising support and awareness for families struggling with perinatal mood disorders. All of Kaya's services are covered by the Aboriginal Doula Program for clients who identify as First Nations, Metis, or Inuit. 

Kaya is passionate about supporting her clients in the choices that work best for them. From home water births to elective cesarean births, breastfeeding to formula-feeding, her clients receive informational, physical, and emotional support to make the choices that speak to them. She serves her clients with an open heart and without judgement so that their journey may be full of love, laughter, and joy. 

Kaya is excited to offer consultations, prenatal visits, as well as both private and group childbirth classes at Matraea in addition to her house/hospital visits for birth and postpartum support.
