Headshot of Nancy

Nancy E. Lewis

My name is Nancy E. Lewis. I became a Full Spectrum Doula to provide families with education and support from fertility and preconception through the postpartum period. I have additional training in infant/neonatal CPR, lactation, pregnancy & infant loss, and perinatal mood disorders. I believe birth is a natural, yet magical experience and everyone deserves the opportunity to feel safe and heard during this most vulnerable time. Some of my goals are to assist families with compassionate, culturally sensitive care and to empower them to advocate for themselves in the healthcare space.  When people have the resources and information they need, they are more confident in their pregnancy journey. I love  serving my clients and helping improve birth outcomes.

What Was I Thinking?
- Thriving In The Fourth Trimester

Bringing home a baby can be scary. The baby isn’t the only new addition, the entire household is reborn! For those who are pregnant, we will devise plans that address some of the known and unknown challenges and for newly postnatal mothers, we will delve into breastfeeding practices and stories that impact our breastfeeding journey. We will focus on our postpartum well-being and create support systems for each other to help ensure a smoother transition to your new life, as well as equip you and your village on how to best support you. Let’s talk, laugh, cry and alleviate our stress together.
