Nice to Meet You!
Welcome! My name is Lexy Gerkensmeyer, my pronouns are she/they. I am a LGBTQ+ full-spectrum doula and the owner of Earthbound Birth Services in Ventura County, CA. I offer birth and postpartum doula services, prenatal guidance, and abortion and miscarriage support. My road to birth work began after I received my AA in Holistic Health Sciences. I continued on to study Human Development and Family Studies as well as Ethnicity, Sexuality and Gender Studies at University of Nevada Reno. After receiving my BA degree, I began birth doula training through DONA International and have been serving families full-time ever since.
Specializing in alternative medicine, I aim for an integrative approach to birth work, offering a range of natural labor management techniques to compliment your traditional medical care. I love working with expectant parents and their families to help them navigate the birth process and welcome new life into the world.
As your Doula, my goal is to give you and your family the attention and knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your pregnancy and labor. Each new birth is a unique experience and in return I will provide you with the encouragement and motivation you will need to achieve your dream birth experience.
