Thiesha The Doula has been established since 2023.I am a mother of 4 beautiful daughters 3 whom I birthed and a wife.I recently became Certified as a doula. I have always had a love for mom and baby. In my practice, I believe that birth is scared mom’s focus should be on birthing her baby. She should feel empowered that she can have this baby. In this space a life is entering into this world. My role is to listen to mom and her families wishes for the birth. During this process I will approach holistically with aromatherapy, comforted measures and massages. As your Doula I will be with you the entire labor and I will follow up with a postpartum visit.

Care philosophy

Childbirth is sacred. I approach it holistically with care and respect.My ultimate role is to advocate, provide physical and emotional support to the birthing person and their family.

I firmly believe in the power of empathy and compassion as guiding principles in my work. By fostering a safe and non-judgmental environment, I strive to create a space where individuals and families can openly share their experiences, concerns, and aspirations.

Care philosophy

My goal is to provide you with the support you need during your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period. Because no two families are the same, it is important to me that you and your family receive the type of care that you desire.

My name is Kaitlyn Soler. I am a veteran and an Army spouse. A little about why I've chosen to pursue a career in birth work, before becoming a birth doula I served as a combat medic in Army where I discovered that I am most happy when I am helping others.

Care philosophy

I believe that all families deserve the continual support of a knowledgeable birth doula, who will help them navigate the experience of pregnancy, labor, and birth with greater confidence.

Doulas also take an active role in collaborating with the parent to create a birth plan.

They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

While many people think that a doula and a midwife are the same thing, their educational background and job duties are different. Doulas are non-medical professionals who provide emotional, physical and educational support, while also offering actionable advice and guidance to new parents about how to nurture their baby.

A midwife is a certified nurse-midwife (CNM) or a certified midwife (CM). CNMs are medical professionals that are certified and licensed by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. CMs are also certified, but they do not have nursing backgrounds.

Doulas are not medical professionals; they focus on the emotional support for the parents and the family before, during, and after the birth of the baby. Their job is to provide information, advice, and support to the family not diagnose any medical conditions or provide medical advice.
