Where to Find the Best Midwife and Doula in Grand Rapids

Best Midwife and Doulas in Grand Rapids

Women are Raving About These Midwives & Doulas

I had no idea how many options I had when it came to giving birth to my children. I thought that you could either have an OB deliver your baby at the hospital, or you could go it alone at home (or in a taxi cab on the way to the hospital!). But birthing has come a long way, and there are options for each unique mama.

There are many decisions to make about giving birth, from how to prepare yourself and your partner for the big day, to deciding where you will deliver your baby, to determining who will be in the room to help you through the process.

Our readers told us who they trust as the best midwife or doula during their pregnancy. Check out our list below to find some of the top options in our area.
