In 2022, I came together with a wonderful group of Montreal doulas to create the Doula Circle. Regardless of whether you need birth doula or postpartum doula support, you’ll find just the right fit for you in our Doula Circle. No matter if you choose to give birth in the hospital, in a birthing center or at home, we here to support you and your family in birthing your way.

What is HypnoBirthing ?
For over 35 years, the Mongan Method has helped expectant parents with proven tools to experience a more peaceful and gentle birth.
The HypnoBirthing® approach is rooted in the belief that our bodies are designed to give birth. By teaching you how to enter a deep state of relaxation, and trust your natural instincts as you birth your baby into the world. Elements of self-hypnosis, breathing techniques, visualization, affirmations and gentle massage support you in finding ease and confidence.
As a birth doula, I have witnessed firsthand how gentle HypnoBirthing® techniques, can make a tremendous difference for expectant families. Not only does it teach you how to calm your nervous system, but it also instills confidence in your innate abilities to give birth and work with your body and your baby.

Phone/SMS/email support with Mika pre and post birth
Mika’s HypnoBirthing class is excellent. The coursework, combined with Mika’s know-how, helped us manage our fear and foster a feeling of calm and confidence going into the birth. We are forever grateful to have had Mika by our side, helping us prepare, and guiding us through birth and into the postpartum period. I highly recommend the course and her doula services!
