Trained Birth Doula
Aloha! My name is Kelsea and I was born and raised on the east side of Oahu. From a young age I knew that I wanted to be a mom. I looked forward to being pregnant and giving birth, despite my friends and relatives influencing me with their birth stories that involved trauma, fear and pain. Something in my heart told me that other perspectives and pathways had to exist regarding positive birth experience. When some close friends of mine shared their story of a beautiful, informed, educated and empowering birth experience at home, I had my prayers answered as to what direction I could take. When my husband and I became pregnant ourselves with our first born, we surrounded ourselves with strong support, proper education and lots of positive reinforcement in our decision to have a home birth. We were able to approach pregnancy and birth with confidence, peace and strength. This is where my passion and desire to spread hope to those who are fearful and hesitant about birth was sparked!
I have had two beautiful home births with my sons Luka and Mako. Lots of personal research, preparation, birth classes and the support of my birth team aided in blessing me with amazing birth experiences. I’m so thankful to have had the births that I did and my goal now is to give hope to those who are looking for the same support.
After 4 years of preschool teaching and two home births, I decided to become a stay home mom while pursuing my doula certification. I never stopped studying and reading about pregnancy, birth and holistic health practices so I decided, “Why not turn my passion into a career??” I’ve come to learn that by overcoming mental and psychological roadblocks and sticking to your convictions, beautiful and empowering birth can happen no matter where you are. Home or hospital, I am here to support YOUR decisions and provide you with the best resources in preparation for your baby’s entry into the world. Our bodies as women and mothers are incredible and I’m here to help you realize that you’re capable of!
I am so excited for you as you’re on this journey to parenthood!
I pray many blessings on you and thank you for taking time to get to know me.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
