My Philosophy

Rubber City Doula - Nicki Lantz

Nicki Lantz CLC, birth doula and certified lactation counselor

The way we are treated in labor, whether we feel respected and honored, has a great impact on our psyche for a long time. A woman who feels supported and heard will often have more positive feelings towards her birth experience than someone who has had a different experience. Your feelings and emotions during the birth of your baby will affect you more than anyone who has not given birth can understand. That’s why I feel my purpose is to help women achieve positive and uplifting birth experiences.

I aim to help women uncover their confidence to make birth choices that are right for them and their growing family.

I am your Akron birth doula and certified lactation counselor. I serve the Greater Akron area and surrounding communities including Summit, Portage, Stark, and Cuyahoga counties.

I am available for both home and hospital births.

I am proud to serve LGBTQ persons with birth and lactation support.

You deserve a doula!
