Midwives and Doulas in Lake County


Although there isn’t a midwife or doulas’ office on every corner, there are quite a few practices in Lake County. Many rely on word of mouth among moms, pediatricians, and OBGYNs to share their information with prospective clients. We’ve gathered up a list of Midwives and Doulas through word of mouth. Some of these our writers have used; readers recommended others.
