"Having Miranda as my doula was an amazing experience. It was my last pregnancy but my first time having a doula. I wish I had used one before. She was very comforting. I felt like I could ask her anything. During labour she kept me focused and relaxed. I absolutely love Miranda. I highly recommend her."

I welcome all families.
(One heart, one mind)
I acknowledge my privilege as a cis-gender, heterosexual woman (she/her/hers).
I am a lifelong learner and am continuously working toward a doula practice that is inclusive and welcoming of all gender identities and expressions, and sexual orientations. I aim to humbly support all persons and families, with an open heart and open mind.
