Birth Doula

Jordyn (she/her) has always been a helper, growing up as the oldest sister to a large brood of brothers. A life-long learner, she took every child and family development class in high school and studied Family Studies & Psychology at Western Michigan University. She spent the beginning of her career in the mental health industry. Having her son at the very beginning of the pandemic reignited her passion for family care and led her to train with DONA International as a birth doula.  

Experiencing Hyperemesis Gravidarium during her pregnancy was challenging. Still, birthing at a time when outside support in labor and post-partum was not allowed solidified to Jordyn the importance of nurturing the parent (not just the baby) during this transformative period in their lives. Each pregnancy and birth story is unique, and Jordyn is prepared to support, listen to, and nurture the families she works to empower. 

She is passionate about perinatal mental health and work-life balance. Throughout her years in the mental health setting, she was the chair of a wellness committee, where she advocated for expanded family benefits. Jordyn was successful and was the first person in her company to be paid for maternity leave. 

Jordyn and her family live in Walker, MI. Often found in the kitchen with an audiobook, she also enjoys traveling and spending time with friends.

I cannot recommend Jordyn enough!  Before and during my birth, she was able to alleviate my fears/weaknesses. She knew what I needed without having to ask, which was so helpful during my birth. Jordyn is very knowledgeable and wise. If I had a question, she was always able to find me an answer. After my daughter was born, things got a little hectic in the delivery room. Jordyn calmed my nerves and was able to keep me relatively at ease during an unfamiliar and uncomfortable time.

I am thankful for all the support and kindness Jordyn showed my family and me during such a special time in life. This is her passion, and it shines through when she is doing what she loves, helping mamas, just like me and you!
After my experience with Jordyn and Alyssa, I tell everyone they need to use Gold Coast for their doula needs. Knowing that I had someone in my corner to advocate, explain, support, and be there for me, my husband, and baby was extremely helpful. They were able and willing to answer any and all questions. They helped calm my nerves during my entire pregnancy, labor, and after. I am so happy with my experience with them.
