Our Doula Team


Our Doula Team


Each doula is trained and then certified with a top doula training organization. They are all insured and have CPR training.

We match potential clients with 1 or 2 doulas to interview and choose the right fit for their family. Clients typically get a primary doula and a backup doula, depending on how many hours chosen. You will have the opportunity to interview, virtually, with your doula before you select the one for you.

Jodi Graves, Founder of our Doula Team

Owner, Clinical Nutritionist, Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist & Infant Feeding Specialist

I certified as a birth doula in 1998 with the Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators.

For over 20 years, I have worked to empower women to take their birthing experiences and their postpartum health into their own hands.

I am also a certified Postpartum & Infant Care Doula and Infant Feeding Specialist with the world-renowned organization, ProDoula. I became a doula before many knew what the word even meant!
