KAYLA OLSON BIRTH & POSTPARTUM DOULA
Doula work is not only my career, but my passion and my way of helping people. I thoroughly enjoy watching new life be born and helping fulfill birthing people’s desires. Ever since I was little I have been intrigued by birth and always wanted to learn more.
My favorite part about doula work is building connections with my clients before labor and getting to support them while they transition into life with a newborn. I like that I get to alter my approach with each client to fulfill their individual needs and desires. I appreciate the fact that every labor is different and that I learn something new each time.
I have always been told I am an old soul and have a calming nature. I’ve always known that I am an intuitive person, and love that I get to use that within my birth work.
Birth and Sibling Doula Fee: $900 - $1200
Postpartum Doula: $25 an hour
CURIOUS? Here are a few Q & A.
Q. WHEN DID YOU ANSWER YOUR CALLING?
I grew up in a family of firefighters and knew from a young age I have a passion for helping others. In high school aspired to become a nurse, and then discovered it was not my calling. I discovered doula work in 2019 and jumped right into taking classes and supporting birthing people.
Q. WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE BIRTH WORK?
I was a nanny for 8 years due to my passion of working with families and young children. Included in my experiences is caring for individuals with special needs.
Q. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I enjoy doing yoga, spending time with family and friends, and playing games in my free time. I also like paddle boarding, and getting out into nature through camping and hiking.
