Welcome to Spirit of Ilithyia Birth Services, serving the greater Kalamazoo, Michigan area with birth doula services, and natural childbirth education. My philosophy about childbirth centers around a belief that women are powerful and that their bodies are fully capable of birthing. Part of my role as an educator and doula is to walk alongside a woman as she deconstructs any notions of fear and doubt surrounding labor and birth, and support her in her autonomy and reclamation of strength as she prepares her whole self for childbirth. Doula translates as “woman who serves”. As your birth-worker, I am honored to assist you on this journey through what I trust will be a powerful and joy-filed rite of passage into motherhood.
