Welcome to K4 Birth Services! Proud to offer pregnant families in Kitsap county and the surrounding counties, compassionate, intuitive doula care for pregnancy, birth, and the immediate postpartum. Birth is powerful and transformative. Every woman deserves to feel supported and empowered through this profound time of life.
I look forward to meeting you and being with you through your journey into parenthood. I attend hospital, home, & birth center births for natural, medicated, or cesarean births.
What’s a DOULA anyway?
A DOULA is a birth professional who…

Assists the woman in preparing for and carrying out her plans for birth
Understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labor
Stays with the woman throughout the labor
Provides emotional support, physical comfort, and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the woman get the information she needs to make informed decisions
Facilitates communication between the laboring woman, her partner, and her clinical care provider
Perceives her role as nurturing and protecting the woman's memory of the birth experience
Allows the woman's partner to participate at his/her comfort level
