LOVE BIRTH SERVICES
Every birth is unique.
Whether it takes place at a hospital, birthing center, or at home, each birth is beautiful and deserving of personalized support.
No matter how or where you choose to birth your baby, you can benefit from having a professional birth assistant. I am with you all the way to guide you and support you so that you feel less stress, less discomfort, and feel that YOU are in charge of your healthcare decisions. I am there for your support during your most vulnerable time so you can focus on the most important things.
You deserve a doula.
You can also find me on Doulamatch!
I am a Stillbirthday and Birth Arts International certified full spectrum doula and breast/chest feeding educator in training with Birth Arts International. I serve the Central Ohio area within an hour of NE Columbus. I will travel further than my typical range on a case-by-case basis. I am also opening up my skill base for supporting people through other life circumstances like surgeries and disability.

A Bit About Me
My name is Jessica Love. My pronouns are she/her. I identify as a neurodivergent leftist queer. I decided to become a doula after a wonderful doula attended the birth of my third child and made me feel supported and heard in my healthcare choices. I am dedicated to the community effort of improving birth and healthcare related outcomes for families in central Ohio or wherever I may reach. I am interested in herbal remedies and holistic healthcare. When I am not working, I enjoy playing retro video games, generalized geekery, a million craft and construction hobbies, reading, gardening, collecting bones, and continuing my education. I am an advocate for bodily autonomy, informed consent, universal healthcare, education reform, and social justice.
I will always be my genuine self around you so that you feel comfortable being your genuine self around me.
Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding services or pricing. I am editing my website again. Check the page with my service packages for information about offerings and pricing. If you would like to schedule a consultation, please email me with your service of interest and also your estimated due date if you are searching for a birth doula.
Thanks for your patience.
