Birthing Guidance

With my Birthing Guidance, I offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during and after birth. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and step in with anything you might need.


Post Surgery Support

Doula is a an action verb that means to offer aid in a time of transition. Aftercare is vital for healing especially after a gender affirming surgery. I offer holistic support with everything from changing of bandages to meal preparation with professional and tender attention to detail.

Queer and Inclusive Care

A third generation birthworker, Mika Muñoz comes from a long heritage of parteras. My great grandmother would ride horse back in middle of the night into villages to support labor and delivery in home births. With the same fierceness, my commitment is to intentionally and respectfully advocate for your agency of your body. All people deserve informed quality care and attention in a time of big life changes!

"After the birth of my beautiful baby girl my doula recommended that we save my placenta so that we can have someone make placenta pills. She made a few phone calls and was able to get in contact with Darlene. Darlene arrived at the hospital within one hour after the birth to pick up my placenta. After a couple days Darlene arrived at my house with placenta pills, placenta broth, placenta prints, cord keepsake and tincture. Since I was pretty new to this she took the time to go over everything with me. She explained the benefits of taking the pills and the history behind them. Overall we are very pleased with everything. I'm so in love with my prints!! Thank you Darlene!!"
