My Philosophy

Rubber City Doula - Nicki Lantz

Nicki Lantz CLC, birth doula and certified lactation counselor

Apologies, but I am not currently taking any new clients. You may use the contact form for referrals to other local doulas.

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!
