Comfort Measures Birth Services

Lydia Nelson provides pregnancy, labor, and postpartum care and assistance tailored to the unique experiences of their clients.

Before setting her sights on birth work, Lydia Nelson worked as a sexual health educator.It was through this she got the experience working with many different groups to educate them on their choices in sexual and reproductive health, and support them through whatever choices they made. It was because of that work that Lydia saw the intense need for this kind of assistance through pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. She is passionate to not just help people through these experiences, but providing care tailored to each person's specific needs. She knows that everyone's situation is different, and is enthusiastic and driven to provide the kind of care that makes her known to be a calming, caring, and knowledgable resource for those looking for a labor and postpartum doula or family planning educator.

My children are grown now, but I haven’t forgotten the pervasive guilt that parenting can engender. Unfortunately, I can’t help
