TRAINING & CERTIFICATIONS

My name is Lexi Zuo. I’m a wife, mother of five, and certified doula living in Elgin, Illinois.

I grew up well versed in the birth world and always knew I wanted to work in this field. I got my start in doula work over 10 years ago while living in Uganda, East Africa. It’s now an honor to serve families in the Chicagoland area!

I understand both the incredible joys and the surprising difficulties childbearing can bring. I’m passionate about evidence-based education, but never push specific birthing styles or preferences on my clients. My desire is to provide compassionate, non-judgmental support for families with all types of pregnancies and all birth plans. No matter how you give birth, you can have a qualified doula providing educational, emotional, and physical support every step of the way!

In my free time, I love relaxing with my family, curling up with a good book, and serving my local church.
