Birth matters.  Birth leads to a much awaited baby.  Birth leads to the creation of parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles.  Birth also transforms the lives of those experiencing birth.  Expectant families on this journey deserve continuous, unconditional support that fosters a sense of control, achievement and heightened self worth.  Regardless of the type of birth a person seeks, the sensitive, nurturing care of a doula offers empowerment and highlights a family’s amazing strengths, laying a  firm foundation for them to begin parenting and nurturing a child. 

Shelia Kandeler, A Doula Chick, offers thoughtful support to birthing families during pregnancy, labor, and birth so that new parents feel safe, comfortable and connected during their birth.  She attends hospital, home, and birth center births on the Eastside (Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Samammish, Carnation…) and in the Greater Seattle area.

Doula Chick motto:  Be with.
