About Summer Birth Services
Summer Birth Services specializes in providing the Rolla, St. James, Salem, Fort Leonard Wood, Houston and surrounding areas with professional support through the childbearing years with options for pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and lactation. Every service is completely customizable for your family’s unique needs, and is delivered in a compassionate, bias-free, non-judgmental manner. At Summer Birth Services, there are no silly questions or trivial concerns.
Summer Thorp-Lancaster founded Summer Birth Services because she saw a need in the greater Rolla area for comprehensive support outside of the standard prenatal and well baby care. It has grown from a one woman operation to include two birth doulas, a lactation counselor, and a fitness instructor. Each team member is hand-picked by Summer for their dedication to pregnant people and new families.

It is an honor to be invited into a family for such an intimate event, to bear witness to a baby being born, a family finding their strength, digging deeper than they ever knew they could. This honor is one that Summer does not take lightly. It comes with a fierce love and deep devotion to the families she serves, as well as a continuous pursuit of information, education and experiences in order to provide high quality services.
Cara knows the uplifting importance of feeling heard, being understood, and encouraged to trust one’s own instincts. She knows that for many families, the birth of their child is one of the most memorable moments in life, and she is dedicated to helping create the best memories possible, regardless of the challenges that may arise.
Through non-judgmental, unconditional emotional and physical support, Cara seeks to help parents find their voice before, during, and after the birth. Cara is truly honored to support and serve growing families during these life-changing events.
After experiencing the struggles and triumphs from breastfeeding her own children, which included significant latch difficulties due to a tongue and lip tie, she developed a strong passion for supporting women during their breastfeeding relationships, especially those experiencing difficulties.
