Lex Fitzgerald + Michala Arnold

We're Michala and Lex, longtime friends and fellow mothers, now embarking on an incredible journey back to our dreams within the birth community. Our paths converged through the profound experiences of motherhood, revealing to us the pressing need for birth workers who champion the principles of full body autonomy and honor the sacredness of birth. Inspired by our own journeys, we've found a deep-seated passion for supporting families in their birthing experiences with compassion and respect. Together, we're on a mission to redefine the birth space, weaving a tapestry of holistic care and unwavering support. Join us as we breathe new life into our dreams, celebrating the magic of birth and the boundless strength of the human spirit.


Rooted Birth Collective's doula services were exceptional. Lex and Michala provided unwavering support and guidance throughout my pregnancy and birth journey. Their calming presence and extensive knowledge helped me feel empowered and confident during labor. I highly recommend Rooted Birth Collective to anyone seeking compassionate and skilled doula care.
