Chicagoland Doulas  Providing exceptional labor and postpartum support & placenta encapsulation in Chicago, IL

“Anne was a very knowledgeable, support and comforting Doula during the birth of my second son. She spent time with my family before the birth and was able to see how we all worked together, she picked up on our quirks and quickly joined in and has become part of our family.” #chicagolanddoulas #clienttestimonial

Did you know: Chicagoland Doulas owner Anne Iverson got her initial start as a doula with the Academy of Certified Birth Educators in Olathe, Kansas, through @donaintl. Chicago-based, DONA is the "international leader in evidence-based doula training, certification and continuing education."

Looking to get pregnant? To increase chances, don't take any medications, prescription or over-the-counter, without talking to your physician first.

Steer clear of products containing vitamin A or its derivatives, like Retin-A or Accutane. Conditions like asthma and diabetes obviously require ongoing treatment, so talk to your doctor before discontinuing any necessary medications. #chicagolanddoulas #firstpregnancy [📸: @juniperjamesphoto ]

“...it’s not any exaggeration to say that Anne was nothing short of miraculous. We originally decided to hire a doula to help with pain management upon learning that I may not be able to get an epidural for medical reasons. But after seeing all that she had to offer, we would have been wise to hire her regardless. She was incredibly warm and supportive and non-judgmental.” #chicagolanddoulas #clienttestimonial #doulaagency #postpartumdoula #labordoula
