Birth Doula Team Leader
About Kaissa Moon...
Hello, my name is Kaissa. After witnessing a very managed and traumatic birth, I had my first birth in a very different setting. I had my first baby in London, England at a birthing center with midwives. I was assured that I would be fine, that I was doing a good job, and that my body was made to birth my baby.
Even though the settings and providers influenced the story of these two births, the difference that I observed was support. I was supported and my decisions were respected. That was not what I saw with the other laboring woman. Then I discovered there was a way for me to provide that support to other women.
I became a doula and later, a massage therapist. Over the past six years, I have attended many births. Over and over, I see that with support and respect, women are empowered by their births regardless of the path their babies are both. I love what I do. I am confident and effective.
I live in Royal Oak with my husband and four kids. We volunteer in animal rescue, and most of the time, we have a homeless pregnant dog at our house waiting for her puppies to be born. I love yoga, reading, sewing, and my amazing and rambunctious family.
