Biography

Hi, I’m Cara Lee Kiggins (she/her). I’ve had the opportunity to work with hundreds of pregnant families as a birth doula, childbirth educator, and prenatal yoga teacher. I’ve been helping people navigate deeply transformative and unfamiliar experiences for nearly 18 years.

Brave Journey is intentional & inclusive childbirth preparation. I started Brave Journey to help people preparing to birth find a sense of grounded-ness, clarity, and confidence. I offer clear, evidence-based birth knowledge, peppered with wisdom, and regular invitations to connect with yourself, your birth partner, and your baby as you navigate your brave journey.

The birth of my two children as well as the births of those I’ve been honored enough to attend as a doula solidified my commitment to ensuring birthing people are prepared to navigate the surprises of birth with knowledge, coping strategies, confidence, bravery, and resilience.

I believe there is no one ‘right’ way to give birth, and I’m fiercely committed to body autonomy & judgement-free birth education where expectant parents gain the knowledge and tools to seek information for yourselves and practice clarifying what feels right FOR YOU.

My spouse is trained as a neuroscientist and his influence helps fuel my commitment to evidence based medical care. My two kids are my heart walking outside my body and birthing them fueled my commitment to honoring birth as a transformative experience.

Born and raised in Arizona, I recently returned to Phoenix but in my adult-life I’ve called Cairo, Egypt, San Diego, Seattle, and the Bay Area home.
