Meet the Pride team

We are Dominique and Jaxon Richardson. We are both extremely proud to get to know you and to be a part of your story. 


Dominique Richardson

Co-Owner, Labor Doula, & Community Educator


Hi, I am Dominique and my pronouns are they/them. I completed my certification with CAPPA as a Labor Doula in July 2013 and I am currently obtaining a second certification with Childbirth International. I am a certified Infant Massage Educator and I love teaching parents ways that encourage bonding and comforting their baby. I have also completed workshops and trainings with Spinning Babies, American Red Cross for adult and infant CPR, and infant loss.


I graduated from Stephens College with a bachelor's degree in psychology and minor in women studies. Since 2008 I have worked as crisis hotline volunteer, sexual assault advocate, and case manager for children, adults, and families living with mental illness, developmental disabilities, and addiction. I wanted to work in the social service and mental health field because I love helping people realize their inner strengths to achieve their personal goals. As a doula, I try to create an environment for my clients that is calm, informative, and supportive, so they can make the best decisions for their bodies, family, reproductive journey, and gender affirming care. I also teach my clients self-advocacy because it is important that your needs, and choices are heard and validated. 

When I'm not wearing my doula hat, you can find me curled up with a warm blanket, a great paranormal romance novel, while sipping on a delicious herbal tea, or you may find me in the kitchen cooking and baking tasty foods and treats (my gluten-free, pumpkin spice, chocolate chip, banana nut bread is out of this world). Most of all I love being out in nature, hiking and kayaking with Jaxon and our Great Dane, Schmidt. 


Jaxon Richardson

Co-Owner, Photographer, & LGBTQIA+ Care


Hey, my name is Jaxon and I am the creative energy behind Pride Doula Services. I have a degree in graphic design and I love anything that has to do with creativity. I love to play the piano, cook delicious foods, make hot sauces, woodworking, and crafting. I also professionally renovate homes and enjoy connecting with nature through gardening. But photography has always been a passion for me. I love capturing beautiful photos of families, animals, and events. I believe photography is more than taking pretty pictures, it is preserving lasting memories that families will cherish forever. 


My partner, Dominique, and I have worked together supporting new families for over eight years now. It has been a joy to be accepted as an important part of each families' journey in postpartum and infant care. I have been providing child care for over twenty eight years now. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to help care for and assist in raising so many amazing little human beings.

I just turned forty this year and only two years ago I came out as transgender. I found out quickly that navigating medical care as a trans man it is downright painful. Transgender patients especially are far more likely to face discrimination from medical providers. This discrimination stems from lack of information of trans health and limited access to LGBTQIA+ positive resources. Many transgender and gender diverse people in small towns have little to no access to healthcare and many have been refused medical care. After experiencing so many difficulties ourselves, my partner and I have decided to provide medical accompaniments, postoperative home support, and resources for our extended LGBTQIA+ family.  

Pride Doula Services Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple: We are here to support YOU. We are here to help you make the best decisions for your body and your your family. We believe that everyone deserves to have evidence based informed care to meet their individualized needs. We understand that family building and LGBTQIA care can be uncertain at times, but know that our support is constant and we want to help you through these experiences. We also embrace the belief that "it takes a village" and we are constantly building our referral network with other community providers to offer clients additional help needed that may exceed our abilities. We also understand that our doula services may not be the right fit for everyone, but we will do everything we can to refer you other doulas in the community who may be a better match for you.
