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.
