Midwife, Doula, Lactation Consultant, Founder & Owner
N.E.A.R. To You Midwifery & Doula Services, ltd. are your most passionate advocates throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum. We will never speak for you but we will give you a voice. You will be knowledgeable on every decision you may have to make, understand the risks and benefits, and gain confidence discussing your options with your care providers. We trust the birth process. With Doula support you will come to believe in yourself, baby and body. We want you to feel connected to your baby physically, emotionally and spiritually. The power in the process of creation is there for you to utilize.
This is an exciting time to be a Doula! The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the World Health Organization has officially endorsed Doulas, “Continuous labor support, including support provided by doulas, is one of the most effective ways to decrease the cesarean rate.”
During labor we will never leave your side. 100% of our focus is on the mother and her partner. In order for your to have a great birth experience, we maintain the utmost respect for essential and non essential hospital staff. We are proud of the excellent relationship we have at all area hospitals and care providers. We are a team.
Doulaing and Midwifery are not just my career, they are my passion. I treasure every birth experience and am truly honored to guide and support you on this journey. Your labor and birth experience have a profound impact on the rest of your life. Expect nothing less than a day filled with peace, love, joy, and empowerment.
In Doula Spirit,
Your Doula & Midwifery Assistant
My passion to support women through childbirth began as I became a mother. My birth story is a beautiful one, and I truly believe that I owe it to the wonderful team of women who supported me. I feel so strongly that all women deserve to feel empowered by the act of giving birth. Because of that realization, I decided to dedicate myself to helping women reach that same level of empowerment that I had. As a Nurse, I know what it is like to get swept up in your duties and wish that I had the time to give a more personal touch. I realized that as a Doula I could give that personal touch.
In 2015 I left the nursing field to pursue my passion of full time Doula & Midwifery Assistant work. I am so grateful to the Midwives, Doulas, and parents who have been a part of my journey so far. I look forward to everyone who will be a part of the journey in years to come.-Jessica
