Olli Gluskin - Certified Doula
I am honored to provide families
with the support they need during the transformative process of pregnancy,
birth, and postpartum.
I recognize each family has a unique experience. My role is to get to know your needs, help you plan, gather information, and find community resources. It is my intention to help you feel empowered making the choices that are right for you, and walking alongside you as you do so.
I offer compassionate care with equity for clients of all cultures, family structures, shapes, colors, and backgrounds.
I strive to provide un-biased, trauma informed care so you can feel confident in the decisions you make.

My passion for birth work was ignited several years before I had my own children. I knew this was my calling, to serve and support, to guide birth givers through the growth and advocacy required to have an empowering birthing experience. I care deeply about supporting families through the life changing events of pregnancy and birth, as well as loss, and all the decisions that accompany reproductive health.

My life is full of joy, playing with my two young children and a sweet, rambunctious dog. I have also enjoyed working on organic veggie farms
in the Inland Northwest since 2010.
Working hard and playing in the soil is my favorite kind of therapy.
"Wow! I smile ear-to-ear when I think of the fabulous guidance and amazing work that Olli provides as a doula! Olli is trauma-informed, well versed in research, reliable, compassionate and client-centered in every way. They certainly know their stuff in the delivery room and what makes them even more amazing are the herbalistic techniques and products they use to aid the entire process- and placenta encapsulation to boot! Don’t hesitate to work with Olli- they’re an absolute treasure."

"I had a wonderful experience with Olli and her encapsulation services. She is very professional and thorough and answered my endless questions right away each time another question came up. She has multiple package options, is knowledgeable about infection risk, and is incredibly accommodating. Not to mention she is on call 24/7 for when labor and delivery hit—day or night she’ll be there to pick your placenta/cord up from the hospital. She also hand delivered my placenta capsules (that come with instructions) within a day of being discharged from the hospital! Wow... She has gone above and beyond since delivering my capsules as well—providing check-ins, a professional lending ear, and extremely helpful resources for PPD. I can’t say enough good things. I will absolutely use her again and hire her as my doula as well if I have another baby."

"Olli was absolutely wonderful! Her presence during my birth was so helpful.
It made the whole experience so smooth and pleasant despite the pain. I would highly recommend her and would use her again for my next birth in a heartbeat!"
