Ryleigh Cochran

Birth Doula
Postpartum Doula
Bed Rest Doula

Ryleigh was raised in Grand Haven, but now lives in Muskegon with her husband Brody, and their two little girls, Penelope & Gemma. She has always loved kids and watched after them in many different roles. She babysat at young age through high school, was a full time nanny for newborn twins, and has been a part of various children’s ministry teams at church while working in the nursery.

Since a young age she has always had a servant’s heart that was extremely eager to serve others and make a difference. Ryleigh had always been interested in being a part of a woman’s “village”, lending a helping hand or a listening ear, and providing support wherever she can. Although she wasn’t quite sure where she could turn her passion into a profession, when she had her two daughters she realized just how extremely important it was for women to have the support they needed in such a  sacred part of their life. Ryleigh had truly felt a “now or never” calling to become a doula!

In 2023, Ryleigh got certified with ProDoula as a labor doula. She became Elite Certified with ProDoula in 2024.

Ryleigh believes that after having two total opposite births of her own, and a loss in-between, there is no right way to get a baby earth side, and will support each and every family as they desire. She will be your listening ear, snack runner, cheerleader, and gentle presence to depend on during your birth. Women can do far more than society gives them credit for, and she is here to educate and empower women as they become the mother they were built to be.

Ryleigh is a Certified Postpartum and Infant Care Doula through ProDoula and a Certified VBAC Pro through VBAC Academy. She loves offering judgment-free
support in the postnatal phase.

When not working, Ryleigh likes to bake, eat Mexican food, and watch rom coms. She can be found going on adventures with her girls, roaming the aisles of target or “attempting” DIY projects around her house.

Ryleigh was kind and understanding to my fears (rational or not). She quickly offered up information and options pertaining to my situation, but was not pushy.
It was like bringing a friend along. I thought maybe I’d be cautious around a “stranger” but I felt very comfortable sharing my very vulnerable sides in front of her.
She met all of my expectations. She was a great asset to my labor experience. I have no idea how I could've had an unmediated birth without her support! My husband tried to help, and he did, but there's just something about receiving support and encouragement from another woman who has given birth before.
