ABOUT

Jamie Platt, BSN, RN, CLC, CBE, CD, CPST

I have always been inspired by the strength of women and the miracle of birth. This is why I’m a professional Doula and proud to serve families throughout West Michigan. I provide unbiased and evidence-based information and emotional support that benefits women and families during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum.


Every birthing person deserves to have someone there to guide and assist them in making educated choices about their pregnancy, and remind them that they can trust in the strength of their bodies during this time.  I am proud to be a Registered Nurse that provides holistic care to all my patients and doula clients.  There is not a one-size-fits-all plan, and our health care system should provide care according to each birthing person's needs and wants. 

I work at Spectrum Health as a Labor & Delivery and Postpartum Nurse, and teach Childbirth Education and Infant/Child CPR classes at Metro Health.  You can also find me teaching classes at Renew Mama Studio and West Michigan Midwifery.  I am a parent to two teenagers and two littles.  I am grateful for the opportunity to take the younger two to nature classes and homeschool activities, and as a family we enjoy exploring nature, being next to any body of water, and going on adventures!
