Gold Coast Doulas, a West Michigan-based provider of pregnancy, birth and newborn services, is expanding nationally with new virtual offerings that will refine its knowledge and offerings for the area's expecting mothers.

The shift in focus was brought on by a realization that with the COVID-19 crisis and safety
protocols, the landscape of pregnancy and birthing has vastly changed. In fact, Kristin Revere, co-owner of Gold Coast Doulas, was in an interview on a live podcast early in the pandemic when the conversation provoked a number of questions in the birth world, and for mothers and families.
There were questions that needed to be answered.
Multimedia expansion in birth work
Gold Coast Doulas is run by Revere and co-owner Alyssa Veneklase. In addition to providing judgment-free birth planning and birth doula services, the company offers sleep and lactation consulting, and in-person day and overnight postpartum doula support and infant care.
In the effort to provide ready and efficient resources for West Michigan mothers and families, Gold Coast has developed a robust offering of information on its blog and is 115 episodes deep into the Ask the Doula podcast.
'Becoming' provides for mothers everywhere
Becoming a Mother is the new six-week online course for mothers and families developed by Gold Coast Doulas.
"'Becoming' is the culmination of years in the business, and a real pivot during the COVID crisis to understand the challenges of becoming a mother during this time, and to provide the resources that can best aid in the birth planning and delivery every individual mother wants," Veneklase said.
Revere teaches the first three weeks of the course on pregnancy planning and childbirth.
Veneklase teaches the following three weeks on postpartum planning, caring for a newborn and sleep. And then the conversation continues with experts in the areas of pelvic floor therapy, hypnobirthing, chiropractic and much more.
"Whether it's the first time or the fourth time expecting for a mom, we're helping to plan and coaching through the process with instruction relevant to this time from our team, and from professional experts around the country," Revere said.
