Lisa Falkenstein graduated from Kent State University in 1997 with a BA in Family Studies. After working in various social work positions and working with many families in various capacities, she has found her calling. Lisa’s love for families, motherhood, and breastfeeding led her career choice as a postpartum doula in Cleveland. Helping build families, establishing breastfeeding and empowering women is her passion, and as a result she completed her certification as a Postpartum Doula and a Breastfeeding Educator through Birth Arts International, became a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC), a Certified Newborn/Infant Massage Instructor through Baby’s First Massage, and a Certified Belly Binder through Sacred Pregnancy.
She believes that birth and motherhood are a sacred time in a mother and family’s life. Every mother deserves to be mothered postpartum. Her goal for every family is to provide them with resources, education, empowerment, and confidence to work herself right out of a job!
Lisa is a happily married mother of two breastfed beautiful children and has an amazing husband. They reside on the westside of Cleveland.
After working for over 8 years part-time through mostly referrals and full-time since 2013, Lisa founded Nurtured Foundation LLC Postpartum Doula Services in late 2014.
