Birth Team

Childbirth is expensive, but your support doesn’t have to be.  We believe every family deserves support and Stork Helpers was founded to bring experienced, affordable, personalized doula care and support to families.  We know that each pregnancy is filled with unique challenges; our goal is to simplify the process and make you aware of all your options so you can feel confident and supported from the day you find out you're pregnant.

Whether you are having a homebirth or hospital birth, water birth or cesarean, natural birth or a medicated birth, we have personally experienced all of these after being a part of over 150 births as doulas. We currently provide birth doula support, placenta encapsulation and childbirth education to families across Cincinnati, Dayton and Northern Kentucky. 

As your partners for your childbirth journey, you will be given peace of mind knowing that we are available for you anytime day or night (seriously), 24/7/365.

Placenta Encapsulation

Nurturing Postpartum Health

The placenta is an incredible organ that provides a lifeline to your baby for nine months.  Now you can use it as a lifeline for you during postpartum.  Placenta encapsulation can assist Mama during the postpartum period using the natural nutrients coming from the placenta.  Placenta encapsulation can help with several aspects of postpartum including energy, postpartum depression, milk production and more.
