Labor of Love MidMichigan has a Tiering Process in order to serve clients. 
Our goal is for NO ONE to go through childbirth and postpartum alone. This is why we were founded. 
If you are a client seeking services, see below our Tiering to see if you might qualify.
Tier 1
  • Those who have NO physical support (no person to be with you, doulas are not able to provide finical support)
  • Those who have uncertain support (ie. deployed partner, rocky relationship, partner with a demanding job and unsure of availability to be in the birthing room with you)
  • Those seeking an adoption - placing your child in the care of someone else

Tier 2
  • Those that have support, may be limited but still have concerns about pregnancy, labor/delivery and newborn care. But are unable to hire a doula.

Tier 3
  • Those that have support, would like the benefits of what a doula provides.
    • Additionally we ask these client to consider making a donation to Labor of Love MidMichigan to continue to serve other clients. 


If space allows for Tier 2 or Tier 3 in our program, we ask that both Tiers be willing to use this experience as a training for new doulas. 
*An experienced doula will always be present with the training doula. 

Call to see if there is space available. 
If there is no space, we offer other doula support referrals in the area.

Who can Labor of Love Doula NOT support?
Do to our insurance/liability we are not able to support home births.  Though we are not oppose to home births we would be happy to give a referral to a doula that can support you through a home birth, we are not able to provide that service.
