WHAT IF YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO FEEL SO ALONE?
Imagine having experts and community to help you sort through the myriad of decisions that need to be made when you have a babe – from the earliest days of pregnancy through til your little’s first birthday.
The joys of parenting sometimes feel as overwhelming as they are wonderful. We are here to help you sort through what is important to you, and to support you as you make the decisions best for your pregnancy, birth and parenting.
Our team, our experience, and our training allows families to feel as though they are not adrift alone in a sea of unknown. You will be surrounded by decades of experience in pregnancy, birth, lactation, newborn care, infant sleep, and parenting.
We are here to support you fiercely and wholeheartedly. Zero judgement involved.
Lumos Doula Services includes not only birth and postpartum doula support, but also the assistance the community experts who new families have sworn by year in and year out: an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant with a decade+ under her belt, a counselor specializing in pregnancy and early parenting, a prenatal yoga instructor, two chiropractors who specialize in pregnancy and new babes, and a midwife-turned-birth-photographer. And we are all parents.
Imagine having the support to confidently make the most useful decisions for YOUR baby and YOUR family.
The experience of Lumos allows you to focus on growing your little one with less stress, saves you decision-making fatigue (it’s a very real thing in this day and age of seemingly unlimited choice), and encourages you to begin confidently making the right choices for your family, all the while knowing you have continous access to the options and support.
Five hundred births, thousands of families, decades of professional work in this birth and babies world between us…
We are safe space.
When it comes to options, we encourage you to explore, consider, try on – and we encourage plenty of space to change your mind too.
We care about how you feel about your decisions more than that you find the “right” answer.
We know you value your time, and we strive to make this experience stream-lined and personally tailored to your needs.
We are experienced. We are organized. We are responsive.
And we absolutely LOVE what we do.

We do not believe there is any one-way to grow, birth, and raise your babies. We are here to help you find YOUR ideal, and we will support you fiercely.
