We believe in support for every woman who desires it; thus, we work with parents where they are, providing as much information, education, and hands on support as they desire. We have a vast array of personal experience including pregnancy loss and supporting survivors of abuse and violence, therefore we are uniquely qualified to support women through these situations with empathy and compassion.
Jen and Linsey work in a partnership. When you book The Ohio Doula you get two highly trained, experienced, professional doulas. While we do have additional back-up, our system ensures you have met with and are comfortable with the person attending your birth. Linsey brings to you years of knowledge and experience in education and labor support, as well as education, postpartum, and placenta encapsulation services if desired. Jen brings an intuitive nature, hands on experience, great training and certifications, as well as lactation knowledge and support. You will meet with two doulas prenatally and for your postpartum visit. We function on a shared call schedule.
We proudly serve Central Ohio (270 and 25 miles beyond) and Dayton Areas.
