Testimonials About Us Birth Doula Request Postpartum Care Request
April Gapsch, DONA Trained more doulas
Growing up I knew I wanted to be a wife and a mother. Having my own family has brought so much joy to my life. I value families and nurturing them is a natural progression for me. Bringing a new baby into the family is a precious time. Supporting families during this transition time is a wonderful experience. I bring emotional support to the family, baby care instruction, breastfeeding support, problem solving, and much more. I have been taking care of Mommies and babies in formal and non-formal settings for many years. I have experience with both single, twins and triplet families. I am DONA trained Postpartum Doula and would love to support your family.

I have been married for over 20 years and have four children. I am still waiting for the joyous day of having my own grandchildren. My husband and I are both native Washingtonians. We live on my husband’s original family property. As a family we enjoy being outdoors, camping, hiking and fishing. My favorite hobbies include running, cycling and reading.
