Meet Megan

MEGAN BENANDER DEHAVEN

Megan has been around pregnancy, birth, and babies her entire life. She’s one of eight siblings, and her husband is one of five; their son has 22 first cousins! Needless to say, she has a knack for caregiving and feels at ease around kids of all ages. Megan’s sweet personality coupled with her love of birth & babies made becoming a doula a natural career transition for her. As a native Clevelander, she’s spent the last few years in Columbus, and is excited to be back and serving growing families in CLE.

Megan lives on the Eastside with her hubby Patrick, son Nolan, daughter Heidi, and husky rescue dog Pearl.

Meet Mandy

MANDY BENANDER HEINRICH

Mandy has enjoyed working as a pediatric nurse for several years, and adores caring for children. It’s safe to say that Mandy knows her way around the hospital, but is keenly aware of her differing roles as both a nurse and a doula and the unique importance behind each. She loves that with doula work, the focus is solely on making sure her clients have the most positive experience. Coming from a family of eight kids, Mandy learned patience and responsibility from a young age, and supporting growing families comes natural to her.

She lives in Cleveland Heights with her husband and two kiddoes, and loves traveling, cooking vegan dishes, and hanging with her big, crazy family.
