Founder, Birth & Postpartum Doula, Yoga Teacher

Elyse Waugh (she/they)

I have been supporting families through their Birth & Postpartum journey for over 3 years now and it is a privilege to be a part of someone’s family in this way! I feel most at home when I am teaching, guiding and holding space for the people around me.


In my work as a Doula I gently guide the birthing person and their support team, amplifying the birthing person’s voice and ensuring they feel supported. Knowledge is power- it is important to me that you feel informed when making decisions for your baby and family. My care will always be intersectional, affirming and rooted in reproductive justice for all bodies and all birth outcomes. I have experience working with unmedicated/medicated births, hospital/home births, high risk pregnancies, IVF/IUI pregnancies, pregnancy after loss and planned caesarean sections. 


In my spare time I love to be outside and move my body! I love the mountains, I love to travel and I love creating and building community.

Birth & Postpartum Doula, Yoga Teacher

Yaïza Décaudin (she/her)

I have spent many years living abroad which led me to appreciate the immense importance of community and the support it provides by creating environments where you are encouraged to ask and accept help from one another. 

Movement, art, and expression have always been a part of me, one discipline constantly leading me into a new layer of myself. My approach to health and wellness is through a holistic lens, inviting clients to view their experiences as multi-faceted. 

In birthing and postpartum care, my aim is to bridge the gap between Western medicine practices and the ancestral wisdom we all carry in our bodies, empowering clients to make informed decisions about their care.

Communications Manager

Caleigh Adams (she/her)

I've been with Art of Tula behind the scenes since early 2022 and being part of this growing practice is nothing short of inspiring. Outside of administration and communications I am a trained actor, standardized patient and a bartender. My work with this collective is the meeting of my creativity and love for working in community.
