Jessica Moeckel

Bed Rest Doula

Birth Doula

Postpartum & Infant Care Doula

Jessica grew up knowing she wanted to be a helping hand in her community. She was “mother-hen” to her 9 younger cousins, the children she baby-sat in high school, and the children in her church’s nursery. In 2015, she graduated from Calvin College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing.

The first birth she experienced was in nursing school. It was then, holding the leg of a laboring woman, that she became enamored with this major moment in the life of a family. Jessica worked as a nurse for 5 years at Mary Free Bed, Saint Mary’s L&D, and a local doctors office. While she gained knowledge and experience, she felt an ache in her nurturing and caring soul that those positions could not satisfy. Jessica discovered the doula community and the ache quieted. She is a Certified Elite ProDoula Postpartum & Infant Care Doula. Jessica wants to help families celebrate and adjust seamlessly into their newly born family structure.

Jessica lives in Jenison with her husband and 2 small dogs named Oliver and Watson. She enjoys sewing, crocheting, and cultivating her green thumb.

It is beyond words how amazing Jessica is. I really feel I couldn’t have done it without her. She was the best support system for my husband and I during the most special, difficult, and intimate time in our lives. I  wouldn’t do it again without her.
Birth Support
Jessica was so attentive and was always ensuring that I was comfortable. She kept me calm and reassured me. She let me know everything that was going on so I stayed calm and confident.
Chelsea, Birth Support
During my pregnancy, Jessica was very supportive by being available 24/7 via text message for any questions or concerns I had. She was a constant source of positivity, encouragement, and compassion.
Birth Support
I would highly recommend Gold Coast Doulas. They were an amazing support system during pregnancy and especially during the labor and birth process. I would say that having a doula was one of the most beneficial parts of our care team. We will want their care and support again in future pregnancies. Jessica was our labor doula and she was amazing. It was so meaningful to have a care person there consistently throughout labor to be supportive for myself and my husband. Her compassion is beyond measure for what she is doing for her clients.
Megan B., Birth Support
Jessica was my doula during birth and she was phenomenal. We had an unexpected emergency preterm birth and she jumped right in like it was nothing. She was a constant support for my husband and I for our entire labor and birth. She was calming, kind, and positive and it was so amazing to have her there just for us. She helped me advocate for myself with the medical staff, and she helped to show my husband the best ways to help support me during the hardest parts of labor. She was just there for me to help hold my hand and remind me that I could do it, and in those moments it’s what I needed most.
Birth Support
Jessica was amazing with our twins! She kept them on the same schedule and didn’t have any issues with our identical boys. We went with night shifts and it was amazing getting a full nights rest for the first time in months. I would highly recommend any twin parents to work with Gold Coast Doulas.
Birth Support
Jessica was warm and welcoming to all of our questions and concerns. She is a person who feels like you’ve known her forever when you’ve only just met.
Birth Support
Jessica 100% exceeded my expectations! She was there for me and also helped my husband. She kept us both calm throughout my pregnancy, labor, and birth. I couldn’t have done it without her.
Birth Support
My experience with Jessica as our postpartum doula was amazing. I looked forward to her visits that we scheduled on a weekly basis. She helped me out so much not only around our home but also with care for our son. She was a wonderful support person for me as a new mom even just to have her company to visit with and ask questions to was more than I could have asked for.
Postpartum Support
Our postpartum doula was Jessica, who we also had as our birth doula. It was so cool to have her postpartum care after she supported us through the birthing process and she could follow along with our growth as a family. She was an amazing support system for me as I navigated new motherhood. I looked forward to our weekly visits and having the help from her with our son or around our home where it was needed. She was a wonderful person for me to talk through things with. I simply just enjoyed her company as I was needing that compassionate support at that time.
Birth and Postpartum Support
Jessica was amazing! Our experience with her was absolutely perfect.
Postpartum Support
Jessica was amazing. We really enjoyed her support. She is kind and compassionate about her role as a doula. I was always comforted in her company. She helped care for me and our newborn son in those first few weeks home.
