Francine Kazmierski

Francine (she/her) has been working as a certified doula for 3 years now. She is also a mother of 2. She specializes in working with twins, and strives to help moms feel supported and educated through their postpartum journey.

Francine has a laid back approach as a doula, supporting families where they are at. She is very personable and enjoys connecting with families of all types. I’ve always loved working with babies and babysat many years of my life starting in middle school.

Francine intends to build on her doula work to become an RN in the NICU, which she is currently in school for. She intends to continue serving in a volunteer capacity offering postpartum services outside of her paid work supporting families in need. Francine wants all the families she works with to feel educated, empowered and confident as parents.

I doula because it is something I’m good at and it is rewarding to share my knowledge and wisdom with families. 



“Francine is reliable, had to call her in a pinch and when they lacked what they needed. Babies are her calling, she has known it her whole
life. ” -Michele M.

“Francine was always on time, had great communication, followed best practices, and provided great support to me as a postpartum mom. She also supported us with sleep training towards the end of care. Francine was a calming presence and we appreciated her medical background, she was able to explain what she was seeing. We would without a doubt hire her again.” -Sarina A.
