Why I do what I do

I believe that every woman deserves to have a birth and postpartum experience that they feel good about and to have their goals and preferences supported. My job as a doula is to help each woman feel prepared, empowered, and safe during labor, birth, and the postpartum period. I feel honored to be able to use my experience and training to provide physical and emotional support to women and couples in Midland and the surrounding counties.

Who is The Good Doula?


My name is Erica Good, and I am a certified doula located in Midland, Michigan. My husband, Ryan, and I have five children.  My passion for pregnancy and childbirth started 15 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child, but it wasn't until a couple of years ago when a pregnant friend said to me, "you would make a great doula!" that I decided to finally follow my dreams and pursue training and certification in birth and postpartum doula work. Contact me today to learn about how I can provide personalized support for you and your family through birth, labor, and postpartum.

Prenatal Visits

At prenatal visits, we will get to know each other while I provide you with valuable information about labor, birth, and postpartum. You will have time to share your vision about your upcoming birth, and together we will create a birth plan and practice techniques that we will use during labor. Your partner is welcome and encouraged to attend these appointments so that I can learn how I am best able to support them, as well. I take on a limited number of clients at any given time to make sure that you receive the full care and attention you deserve. By the time we finish our prenatal visits, you will feel confident and prepared for labor and childbirth.

Birthing Guidance

Imagine what it would feel like to have continuous and unwavering, professionally trained support for you and your family for the duration of your labor and birth experience. Applying counter-pressure, using the birth or peanut ball for support and positioning, and the rebozo are just a few of the many ways that I provide physical support during labor. Emotional support is just as important, and with me as your doula, you can be assured that you always have someone in your corner. I will provide powerful affirmations, support you in your choices, and empower you to make your voice heard in all aspects of you and your baby's care.

Postpartum Support

No matter how big or small your support system is, all new families can benefit from a postpartum doula. Whether you are looking for breastfeeding support, babywearing advice, a trusted person to care for your newborn while you and your partner are getting some much-needed rest, or if you are just looking for someone to help with laundry, dishes, and cooking while you bond with your new baby, I am trained and equipped to offer you the support that you need.  Are your family and friends asking you for gift ideas for the baby, but you already have everything you need? A postpartum doula package is the perfect group gift for new parents!
