Hi! I’m Amanda Laskowski, perinatal educator, community builder, and founder of Cincy Postpartum (, based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I am trained by CAPPA as a Postpartum Doula and Lactation Educator.  After my own experience welcoming two daughters into the world, I felt called to take my prior skillset in working with adult learners on college campuses to support families in the tender postpartum season/early years of new parenthood. I wanted to fill a noticeable gap in postpartum care in my community. I am the creator of #CincyPostpartumCircles and I facilitate these support circles for moms+babies in the 4th Trimester, in the back-to-work transition, and for moms further out postpartum. Both inside and outside of these circles, I’m a networker, and love connecting local families to just-in-time resources and local perinatal experts/service providers.

Early parenthood requires decision after decision for you and your family. When we work together, I support YOUR choices, but I am alongside you to provide evidence-based information and practical guidance as you navigate the grey.

I am trained to support all families in the postpartum season. That said, as a patient/client myself, I often seek providers with shared identity and experiences. It may be useful to know that my personal postpartum experience includes: two spontaneous vaginal births, a NICU stay, pregnancy loss, transitioning to daycare/full-time outside the home employment, two breastfeeding + bottle feeding journeys (a year of exclusive pumping, and a combo nursing/pumping journey),  and healing birth injuries through pelvic floor therapy. I live in the city of Cincinnati, which has been a wonderful place to call home as a transplant from Wisconsin. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and a Masters of Science in Student Affairs and Higher Education from Miami University (OH). My graduate education centered on adult learning & identity development, DEI, organizational change, and counseling. In the first dozen years of my professional life and before founding Cincy Postpartum in 2022, I sat alongside University students, supporting them in their transition to higher education and their new identity as a college learner.

Inclusive, compassionate care is always my goal.  The way our various identities intersect with our role as a parent– race, gender, class/employment status, marital status, spirituality– are front of mind as I work with clients. Gender affirming/LGBTQ-inclusive and anti-racist care is of the utmost importance to me. My goal is to support you in making the best decision for you and your family.
