Bed Rest Doula

Postpartum & Infant Care Doula

Jade came to Gold Coast Doulas from Tampa, Florida with an extensive background in customer service and healthcare. Her work as a medical assistant pulls strengths from her ability to work with diverse populations backgrounds and ethnicities. Jade’s professional background working in Fortune 500 companies afforded her the opportunity to perfect her customer service skills. As a result, she is warm, friendly, eager to help and provide parents with any information they might need. As a postpartum doula she is caring, attentive and loving. Her clients appreciate her calm and nurturing presence. She wholeheartedly enjoys spending time with new mothers and their babies. She especially loves helping people achieve their personal postpartum goals and providing reassurance to new parents navigating life at home with a newborn. Her focus is on helping the new mother regain her strength while bonding with her new baby and coping with the new addition. Her goal is to help new mothers and provide them with the opportunity to rest and recuperate after their birth so that they can enjoy their baby much more. 

Jade loves tuning into each family to assess the kind of nurture and support that will serve them best in the fourth trimester, whether that’s breastfeeding help, household support, or a compassionate listening ear.

As a woman of color in this profession, Jade is passionate about addressing the Black Maternal Health Crisis and it is a calling for her.

When not with clients, Jade can be found enjoying a good home cooked meal or outdoors with her fur baby and partner. During her downtime she watches videos and listens to library books ranging from infant care to self-care. She is happy to suggest educational videos and books to help understand the postpartum journey and provide encouragement to families along the way. Jade is a certified elite postpartum and infant care doula with Prodoula.

Jade resides in Ludington and serves clients in West Michigan and Northern Michigan.

Testimonials

We were nervous of course but it's also our 3rd baby so we were open to having the help. I was able to comfortably recover from surgery knowing Jade was taking care of everything - the baby, dishes, laundry, contact naps and lots of holding.
Postpartum Support
Jade and Sarah (who were our primary support over the three months) were both exceptionally supportive both practically and emotionally speaking. I would absolutely recommend Gold Coast to any expectant mother. I wish we had their support for our first two kids because it was an absolute game changer! The ability to get some sleep during those early weeks (coupled with their emotional support along the way while we wrangled two young toddlers) gave me and my husband so much comfort during a very chaotic time.

Jade was professional and caring. She was great with my son and I felt comfortable leaving him with her. She made my days so much easier.
Postpartum Support
In preparation for Baby Virginia’s arrival, we had been encouraged to explore the hiring of a doula for the weeks after her birth. From the very beginning of Jade being in this role, she showed herself to be an exemplary caregiver. She consistently went above and beyond, providing us with the type of compassionate, expert support that made us more competent and comfortable as first-time parents with a newborn. Jade introduced us to strategies and techniques we were not aware of. She also encouraged us to lean on her being at our home so we could get rest otherwise not easily available, a gift that made all the difference.
Postpartum Support
Jade was incredible! She was thoughtful, knowledgeable, respectful, kind, nurturing and so much more. She took care of our newborn for a few months a few times a week and helped with our toddler, too. She is so wonderful with kids and did an amazing job caring for our little one and checking in on me, too. She helped with bottle feeding, diaper rash, sleep challenges, and really supported our 8 week old when he got sick. There is nothing more impactful than feeling cared and supported during those tender postpartum months. We miss Jade every single day and it was one of the best decisions ever to have her support and care for our family.
