Katie Miles

Meet Katie!

Katie Miles (she/her) is a doula & educator who has served numerous families beginning their parenting journeys.

She became a doula because she passionately believes in supporting human rights in childbirth, educating families, healing birth trauma, supporting parent & infant mental health, and helping families to have a more positive pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum experience.

 

Since 2015, Katie has been helping families to achieve the birth they want, care for their babies (and themselves!), and to get better sleep!  She strives to provide the education, options, and resources that new parents are seeking in order to empower themselves.  

As a member of the Kansas Doula Collective (and part of the Board of Directors), Katie is also subject to professional accountability.

(You may submit feedback at any time!) She is committed to continuing education, with a goal to provide her clients with the very best care possible.  She is professionally trained, certified, and insured.

Katie also owns a dog treat bakery, Puppy Smiles, and you can find her at the farmers market nearly every Saturday! She is also the Chair of the Membership Committee for Kansas Grown! Farmers Markets.

In her spare time Katie enjoys yoga, playing the cello, camping, and playing with her kids.  She has been a homebrewer since 2008, and spent six years on the executive board of the local club (Wichita Homebrewers Organization), two of those as president.  She also enjoys cooking, and learning about different cultures & cuisines.
