Well, hello there! I'm Micah...

Your friendly neighborhood McKinney, TX doula! 

I'm also the wife of a retired Navy sailor and a mom to two crazy and wonderful little girls who very much keep me on my toes! 

When I'm not driving my girls to their activities, you can find me reading, journaling, or hanging out on my back porch. The summer is my favorite and I love being outside as often as possible...and I'm probably barefoot. 

Our little family are overlanders and love taking our tricked-out Jeep ("Jenny") out into the wilds to discover new terrain, new views, and new adventures! When we're not out camping, we're probably patio dining, watching Star Wars, or playing Super Mario Bros.

My journey to birth work and photography started after the births of my own two daughters. I know first hand what it looks like to have a birth that is supported and what it feels like to have my wants and wishes understood and respected. Because of that, I want to ensure that as many families as possible are able to have that same experience. Feeling so confident during childbirth, both physically and emotionally, set the tone for my parenting journey.

I believe that birth is more than just a biological process. It is a deeply transformative journey that shapes individuals in profound ways. With each new birth, a mother emerges, reborn into a new chapter of her life. Whether it's your first baby or your fifth,  each birth marks a significant milestone, ushering in personal growth and evolution.

Birth is a deeply personal experience, with no one-size-fits-all approach. My goal is to encourage you - through guidance, education, and support - to make the best choices for you and your family. I believe that the more supported you are during the childbirth process, the more confident you will be throughout your parenting journey. 

My work as a doula is heavily informed by my yoga training and experience. I believe that preparing your mind and soul for the hard work of childbirth is just as important and preparing your body. My hope is that you'll begin to listen to your intuition, knowing she can be trusted to guide you. Whether it's telling you how to move your body during labor or telling you something doesn't feel right, I want you to be able to connect with, honor, and hone your inner wisdom.

"We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful.

It's that women are strong."
