Lynnette Nichols

Bed Rest Doula

Postpartum & Infant Care Doula

Lynnette’s first passion in life has always been working with children, and as a doula she continues to do what she loves while supporting other moms. Lynnette is a Certified Elite Postpartum and Infant Care Doula through ProDoula.

Lynnette’s past careers have given her skills that are a great asset to any new mom. As a graduate of the Culinary Institute of Michigan and former personal chef, she can lend an expert hand with meal prep or new meal ideas. Lynnette decided to take a break from the food industry to do a little soul searching and worked in both a daycare and nanny setting. While she enjoyed the children very much, she felt strongly that helping moms and babies postpartum was something she is uniquely suited for.

Lynnette lives in Ludington with her husband Kyle, and three children. They are a blended family that enjoys spending time together, whatever the adventure may be. As a former Yooper and lover of the outdoors, Lynnette and her family can be found several times a year enjoying all the Upper Peninsula has to offer, from hiking to kayaking, sightseeing to snowshoeing.

Lynnette looks forward to supporting your family in a caring, nonjudgmental manner. She supports families in Ludington, Silver Lake, Manistee, and Pentwater.

With Lynette’s help my husband and I were able to get much needed rest with our newborn daughter. As new parents know, getting enough rest is difficult. With the additional rest I was better able to care for my daughter during the day. It also allowed my husband and I to go to bed at the same time.

Lynette is wonderful. She has a calm presence. She is a great listener and she’s willing to offer advice/tell her experiences in a non-judgmental way. Initially, I was nervous to have a new person take care of my baby, but Lynette made me feel comfortable from the beginning.

Since we don’t really have doulas service in our home country, we found ourselves not knowing what to expect. Thanks again for sending your doulas here, their knowledge and expertise changed our lives dramatically and made parenting so much easier! More than anything, their warm support and kind words brought both me and my wife to tears.
