Meet Your Nurturing Guide: Jaime Collado

Jaime Collado, Doula & Owner of Nurtured Bend

Hello, I’m Jaime, a mother, doula, and your companion on this transformative journey into motherhood. I’ve experienced the myriad of emotions that come with pregnancy and growing a family, and I am here to share in every moment with you.

Having been where you are, I remember the mix of excitement, worry, and curiosity. Each family’s journey is wonderfully unique, and I respect that deeply. I’m here to offer you personalized guidance with compassion and empathy.

With my nutrition degree from Bastyr University and years of experience as a doula, I merge emotional support with science-based health care in my approach to birth and postpartum. I’ve had the privilege to walk with many families on their transformational paths – each one an empowering, joyous experience.

Compassionate, Fun, & Family-Oriented

"Jaime was such a pleasure to work with. I really recommend getting a Doula for your birth, especially Jaime. She's caring and kind and was focused on our wants and needs. She clearly put her needs aside for the sake of mine during the birth of our daughter and it was just incredible. We also had a lot of fun together and I enjoyed seeing her again after birth to talk about everything that happened. Great support and great person. She is part of our family now."
