Our Mission

Living Heart Doula Services is focused on supporting families, right where they are in their pregnancy and in their birth journey. By supporting mothers in birth, we build stronger families and healthier communities. It is my goal for clients to have a compassionate and empowered experience.

About Jessica Vogtman

I am a coffee loving California transplant, and have lived in Maryland since 2003. I have my degree in Biology from Notre Dame of Maryland University, and am a certified Labor Doula through Birth Arts International. I became immersed in natural living while working as a zookeeper at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, and had the love and support of my co-worker and doula, Julie Grove, during my first birth in 2012. 

After my first birth experience, I began hearing the birth stories of friends, neighbors, and community members. While hearing their stories, I felt how much our culture leaves families to flounder without support. I wanted to be a part of the growing change, helping parents grow their families with confidence and compassion.  

I'm a believer that all families deserve support during this time, and this includes natural, medicated, and cesarean birth.

I am located in Westminster, MD. While I primarily serve Carroll County, I do travel as far York County, PA, Baltimore County, and Howard County. Its my main priority to be able to attend to you quickly!
