What We're All About

Cassie Schultz Grand Rapids Doula

Hi, I'm Cassie.

I started my doula career in 2012 after going through my own difficult experiences with birth trauma, postpartum depression and anxiety and struggling to find a complete support network.

It is now my passion to help other families avoid or cope with the complications I experienced while at the same time growing the doula profession and providing an agency home for other compassionate, dedicated doulas.

I learned about the value of birth and postpartum support the hard way. I don't want that for you. My team and I are ready to help YOU have the kind of experience that you deserve.

When you are giving birth and caring for a newborn there are so many things that are out of your control. You are in control of building your support team though! While we cannot guarantee what your birth may bring, we can promise you skilled support no matter what twists and turns this life experience may take.
