Kaylie Groenhout


A nurturer by nature, Kaylie found a special love for pregnancy and birth when she delivered her first daughter overseas in Japan. A HypnoBirthing class she took during that time inspired what has turned into her passion and livelihood as a doula. Her degree in Communication and Event Management coupled with her compassionate birth support services allowed her business to flourish in Northern Virginia.  As a native Virginian, Kaylie is deeply rooted in the NOVA region and is passionate about supporting local families as they explore and find their own birth and parenting philosophies.

Kaylie values communication, respect, and nonjudgmental support. She offers compassionate care and a unique ability to meet each family where they are, recognizing their distinct and important family dynamics. Her goal is to inspire women to make the choices that best meet their needs, allowing them to build their confidence and trust in themselves and their decisions.

In her spare time, Kaylie enjoys internet window shopping, dreaming up her next travel adventure, and enjoying a glass of chewy red wine. She lives in Loudoun County with her husband, three daughters, and Frenchie, Hamilton.
