CLEbaby is a full-service doula agency with a team of seasoned specialists. There are two types of doulas: birth doulas and postpartum doulas.

A birth doula supports families during pregnancy, birth and immediate postpartum. She can help create a birth plan and connect new families with resources they can rely on going forward.

A postpartum doula supports families for the first few months after birth. She will take care of things like baby care, sibling care, preparing healthy meals, doing the dishes or laundry, and even providing overnight care if needed to help moms transitioning back to work.

Both types of doulas know the ins and outs of working with hospitals and medical staff. They pride themselves on having forged positive collaborative relationships with medical practitioners for the best experience for new and expectant parents.

CLEbaby’s team of 10 doulas covers about 10-20 births every month at hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio and are on-call 24/7.

Childbirth Technique Helps Reduce Fear and Pain during Labor
HypnoBirthing is a trendy style of pain management during labor and delivery. The educational course emphasizes natural childbirth and teaches self-hypnosis techniques to combat fear and pain.

CLEbaby offers a five-week class that covers special breathing techniques, gentle self-hypnosis, meditation and visualization to help women through labor.

In addition to HypnoBirthing, teachers from the agency offer customized childbirth classes to expectant parents that take place within their home. Parents can pick and choose topics of interest.

Addressing the #1 Complaint of New Parents: Lack of Sleep
A growing service at CLEbaby is its In-Home Pediatric Sleep Training. It’s hard for parents to take care of themselves and their babies when they aren’t getting any sleep.

Working with a company out of New York City, the agency offers the individualized Mommywise Sleep Training, which takes place within the family’s home over the course of 3-4 days and nights. A sleep trainer identifies the issues going on in the home that would best promote sleep for the baby, including naps, sleep environment, meal times and bedtime routine. Four weeks of unlimited support follow the in-home service to make sure parents have all the tools they need to overcome obstacles. The method helps teach babies how to self-soothe to fall asleep and has produced a 100% success rate here in Cleveland.

Preserving the Placenta
Placenta encapsulation is a modernized approach to an ages-old tradition that’s been used over the centuries as an avenue to help moms feel better and recover from pregnancy and childbirth.

CLEbaby offers trained specialists who send a kit to new parents so they can transport the organ home, where they sanitize the home and encapsulate the placenta.

Benefits are said to include hormonal balance, increased energy, increased milk production just to name a few.

CLEbaby has won numerous awards, including Best Doula in Cleveland Expertise Award, Best Pregnancy/Postpartum Care by Northeast Ohio Parent, and founder Ashley Sova was named into the “Class of Fascinating Alumni” at Cleveland State University

CLEbaby works through most area hospitals, as well as clients’ homes. Call 216-694-8266 or visit for more information.
