Many Paths One Result

If you’re pregnant, or would like to become pregnant, you may be overwhelmed by all of the information and advice coming at you from every direction. We understand. And we want you to know that you don’t have to follow any one path or prescription.

Healthy pregnancies and positive birth experiences begin when families are empowered to choose what’s right for them. Our professionally trained doulas can help you determine what’s best for you and your family.

With our support, you’ll prepare mentally and physically for your pregnancy journey. We’re there with you every step of the way, helping you make the choices that are right for your family, and your body.

Hospital birth or home birth? Physiological birth or epidural? It often seems as if there are as many ways to have a baby as there are babies to be had. Our trusted professionals guide families through the myriad decisions to be made between now and your baby’s birthday. At the same time, we provide you with the physical and emotional support you need to feel healthy and confident during this exciting time.

We invite you to learn more about our personalized doula services.

"Holistic Family Doulas brought a sense of calm to an otherwise stressful experience for first time parents. From prenatal support, birth coaching and postnatal check-ins, we felt so much more confident navigating this new world with their help."
Kristen G.
“[They] came to our apartment for a beautiful postpartum ceremony. I felt so nourished by the belly binding, reiki, and time for reflection with my husband--it felt like a perfect way to close out the birth of my daughter!”
Laura G.
“The team at HFD is hands down the VERY BEST! If I ever have another baby, I would hire LIBBY again in a heartbeat! Thank you again for getting me through this birth! :)” -

“I sought out Errin to be my birth doula after working along side her to support a birth. Being a doula myself, I felt really strongly about wanting someone I knew I could trust and that would not only advocate for me but help me advocate for myself to have the birth I wanted. Not only was Errin a huge support throughout my birth, but prenatally and postpartum as well. I had a lot of anxiety about having a hospital birth, and Errin being there and helping me to advocate for myself and supporting my decisions made my birth experience a lot easier. My husband and I truly could not have done it without her. Errin goes above and beyond in every aspect, and cares so deeply about every client she has and birthing people as a whole.”
Miranda Y.
“Their line of holistic products (tea, lotion, balm, etc) were nice additions for extra relief both before and after birth. It’s so nice to have trusted guidance from experts during such a sacred time.”
Kristen G.
“These women are so fantastic and nurturing, you'd be hard pressed to find better doulas and better post-care anywhere in the west suburbs.”
Erin D.
“Go to their workshops. They truly carry a wealth of knowledge between them and have a genuine passion for supporting families. The postpartum workshop I attended was great because it was specific, covered important topics, and gave us hands-on activities for great postpartum care. Looking forward to future workshops by Holistic Family Doulas!”
Isabel G.
"It has been so difficult to put into words and to articulate what Errin’s services meant to me and my family. At our home birth, she was everything, strength, comfort, documenter, friend, whatever was needed at the particular moment. However, where her value can not be overstated was post birth when she went above and beyond to create a safe and relaxing space for us to focus on our newborn. She brought over meals, helped clean the house, basically took all the weight off of us so that we could truly be in our special moment with our family. Errin gave us something that can’t be quantified or measured, but will stay with us and in our hearts forever. This isn’t just another “great service” referral, this is a question of do you want to give your family the absolute best?"
Brandon H.
“Libby was my doula for the birth of my daughter and her support was magnificent. This labor and delivery was significantly different than my first. Although I still dealt with some blood pressure issues, labor went a lot faster and we used the knowledge that we gained from my first delivery to guide the experience with this birth. Libby really worked closely with the nurses to come up with a plan to keep labor progressing and provided me with the mental support and space that I needed when I was scared to start pushing. Her guidance outside of the hospital was also excellent. We talked about many different topics including balancing two kids, lactation, healing, and future education as I explore becoming a doula myself. This company and these women have been the most valuable part of my experience bringing my kids into this world.”

"Renee made me feel like a goddess after I gave birth, which is how all women should feel. She made nourishing meals and snacks, gave loving massages and beautiful baths that helped me stay connected to my baby while I recovered."
Marysia D.
“Renee was fantastic! She took great care of our newborn baby which enabled me to focus on my self care during the early weeks and months. She also cooked us awesome dishes that we were in such need of and did some basic cleaning which was also so very helpful. Highly recommend Renee for postpartum support!”
Ekaterina B.
“I call Errin my angel and I mean that whole heartedly. I was determined to have a different experience for my third pregnancy and hired Errin because support was something I didn't have after my first two pregnancies. I never dreamed how loved I would feel by this woman and how much she would love my baby. Whatever I needed, along with things I didn't even know I needed, was given to me and my family. My postpartum experience was beautiful because of her and I can't imagine doing things differently. Her knowledge of babies, women, pregnancy and postpartum is beyond what words can describe. She not only becomes a part of the family but becomes the teacher, showing us all how to navigate big changes and doing it calmly and lovingly. She is truly one of a kind.”
Angie B.
