Birth & Postpartum Doula
Certified Car Seat Technician
I am immensely privileged to be going into my 10th year as a birth & postpartum doula, and childbirth educator here in the beautiful traditional territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ nation.
When I am not supporting expecting parents through their pregnancies and births, I can usually be found snuggling a new little one while their parents catch up on sleep, or running errands with new big siblings.
I absolutely LOVE exploring this wonderful Island with my husband and our furry sidekick Skutz, as well as a hot cup of strongly brewed black tea while listening to a true crime podcast.
I absolutely LOATHE getting wet pant legs on cold rainy days.
I would love to get together and chat about how your pregnancy, or postpartum, is going and find out how I can support you in your transition into and through early parenthood.

"We clicked right away when we met each other! Kaya has such a great calming presence and sense of humour. My husband wasn't sure if we needed a doula since we had our awesome midwives, but he was able to be a total rockstar for me during my 2 day birth because Kaya was making sure he knew what to do and that he was getting enough food and rest to keep up with me. We both also highly recommend her prenatal childbirth classes that was super packed with awesome info and funny!"
