Meet Your Gold Coast Doula-Lynnette
We love asking our Gold Coast Doulas questions so you can get to know them more. Meet our infant care specialist and postpartum doula, Lynnette Nichols and learn about her inspirations and background.
Before I became a doula, I was the manager at Lemon Creek Winery’s Tasting Room in Grand Haven. I worked there for five years.
2) What inspired you to become a doula?
I saw a segment that Gold Coast Doulas did on Fox 17. Listening to them describe the role of Postpartum Doulas really moved me to want to learn more. I have always loved children and supporting other moms; it really does take a village and I have been blessed to have some amazing people come into my life. I am excited to take on this new career and support families during such an important time in their lives.

7) What is the best advice you have given to new families?
No one knows all the answers and no one is the perfect parent.
8) What do you consider your doula superpower to be?
I don’t think I can answer that yet and look forward to finding out.
10) What is your favorite place in West Michigan’s Gold Coast?
I live in Grand Haven and absolutely love it. If I didn’t live here, I’d be here all the time. If I am not spending time at the beach or on the American Legion deck, I love going to Grand Rapids and enjoying the great restaurants.
11) What are you reading now?
I am reading Eat, Move, Sleep by Tom Rath. My daughter is considering going into kinesiology and nutrition; she recommended the book to me.
