Years of experience working with families has helped us understand that doula support and evidence-based information inherently go hand-in-hand.


So when you hire Lumos doulas, the classes you need to be ready for your babe are included.


Our philosophies at Lumos focus on options and a firm belief that there is no “right” way to do this growing, birthing, and raising of tiny humans.

First Birth?

Families having a bub for the first time have access to our full Lumos series – a 20hr set of classes that cover childbirth (including coping and labor support) and infant care (including breastfeeding, infant soothing, and postpartum recovery).

The investment to work with Lumos team doulas for families who are having their first babe is $1300.

Have a little (or littles) already?

Families who have had a babe before are able to register for our Birth Basics Express class – a one-day course great as a refresher; clients reflect on how surprisingly useful it was.

The investment to work with Lumos team doulas for fams who’ve had a bub before is $1100.

Included in Lumos doula services:

Monthly Group Prenatals
Comprehensive Childbirth, Breastfeeding & Newborn Care Education
OR (if you’ve had a babe before) A One Day Birth Refresher
An In-Home Prenatal
Birth Labor and Immediate Postpartum Support
Birth Followup Visit


We also offer postpartum doula packages, additional lactation support, and photography to our birth doula clients at Lumos; these are optional, and we will walk you through the options if they are of interest to you.

The ladies of Lumos are worth their weight in gold! Great prenatal classes, birth and post partum support that’s really second to none. Seriously, they are just the best. They have taken care of every detail in helping you prepare for baby and are the kindest, most thoughtful human beings on the planet.

My wife and I have had a terrific experience with Lumos. Their birth classes are second to none and you couldn’t ask for better support. I would recommend them first when considering doula services in Madison.
– Bob

Lumos is incredible. They are kind, strong, and respectful, and have become an important part of our birth and postpartum community! They are truly advocates for their families and the most amazing birth partners, helping us understand our options and impact every step of the way, and helping me recognize my power as a woman giving birth. Their knowledge and presence leading into our birth and postpartum are valuable in ways that we had never imagined prior to going through the experience with them, and that are different from many doula models in the Madison area. Their innovative model allowed us to build a relationship with the full team and meant that no matter what we needed, and when, we had the experience and expertise available to us. We recommend Lumos without hesitation – talk with them once. You’ll get it.

I know my patients are in good hands when they choose Lumos. The doulas support families with respect and caring during this transformative period. My patients feel supported in their choices and not judged by this group. The doulas also work collaboratively with OB providers to help ensure mothers and babies stay healthy. The comprehensive package Lumos provides offers pregnant and postpartum women the support they need to remain healthy and feel good during a physically trying time. I am appreciative of all the things Lumos does for women and their families and highly recommend them to my patients.

-Leila Midelfort, MD Family Physician Wildwood Family Clinic Madison, WI

The Lumos team was essential to our entire first birth experience, we couldn’t have imagined it without them. The classes and group sharing informed us and prepared us in addition to standard classes at the hospital. Knowing we had knowledgeable support meant everything. Your birth plan can go out the window very quickly and having the calm Lumos team there to breakdown options and allow you to make informed decisions in stressful times is indispensable. Lumos was both so amazing and caring for us like family throughout. Their lactation consultant helped us more and made life easier in one home visit than in multiple consultations at the hospital. We highly recommend the doulas to give you peace of mind and help make your birth experience the best it can possibly be given any circumstance.
