Genevieve Isabelle

From the very beginning of our relationship, Mika demonstrated openness, respect and generosity towards us. Her attentiveness, her calm and her advice instilled in us a sense of confidence we were lacking. Her balanced approach, which puts science and spirituality in dialogue, was perfectly suited to our values! As soon as Mika officially joined our “team” until the birth of our son, she was a very available and responsive partner.

During labour, she was able to choose the right moments to be affirmative or discreet, and acted in complementarity, and with much respect, to the medical staff. Her encouragement, her techniques, her ideas and her energy were very valuable assets for my spouse and me. Mika was an inspiring teammate whom undoubtedly contributed to the realization of my “wish” to give birth naturally, without an epidural, after having a c-section.

Thank you, Mika!

Mika was an incredible support before, during and after the birth of our baby girl (Oct 2018). We instantly felt comfortable with Mika and knew she was the right person to share this most vulnerable jouney with. I can truly say I had a very positive birth experience and this is in large part thanks to Mika. Mika carries a calm sense of reassurance with her which gave me the boost of confidence I needed to stay with my wishes and decisions all along the way. Mika never wavered in her presence during the 28 hours she spent with us at the hospital. She knew intuitively when to be hands on and when to give space. She also had natural methods which were effective in helping the baby descend further in order to accelerate the long birth. Her acupressure and massage knowledge was very helpful in managing the intensity of the experience. I especially appreciated having the opportunity to follow up with Mika after the birth. The hospital staff change so frequently during a birth that both my partner and I found Mika’s continuity in presence during and after to be a great comfort. Thank you Mika!

Mika was an outstanding support and an essential part of our son’s birth. She embodies exactly the presence I needed during delivery: calm, caring, strong, and an advocate for our needs and desires. My labor progressed quickly, and Mika was able to support me and my husband and ensure that the experience still unfolded with our wishes at the forefront. She also helped me to manage my anxiety around a postpartum complication, which was an immense help to me. Our entire family is grateful to Mika for her professionalism and compassion — we couldn’t have been in better hands!

Michal was our doula this past June 2018. I can't imagine how we would have done it without her! Mika was a calm, knowledgeable and nonjudgemental support throughout the pregnancy and birth. She was a great teammate to my partner during the late night labour. When my labour quickly accelerated, she knew just when to get the medical team into the room. Having a doula during such a major physical and emotional transition is a great way to set yourself up for a healthy and positive birth and postpartum experience. Thank you Michal!
