COO + Co-Founder, Birth and Postpartum Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor

Shannon Graber

Let me introduce myself, my name is Shannon Graber.

I am beyond proud to say I am the COO and Co-Founder of Fourth Down, alongside a former postpartum client, turned dear friend and business partner, Caitlyn Conklin.

A little background on myself. In 2007 I married my high school sweetheart. We live in Lakewood with our three beautiful children and two pups.

Prior to becoming a doula, I worked in child and elderly care. I am a born caregiver with a passion for birth and babies. I have been serving the greater Cleveland area as a birth doula after training through DONA in June of 2018.

Following training I became a volunteer Birth Doula with Metro Hospital. The time I spent there gave me the opportunity to support parents in all walks of life. It also gave me the confidence I needed to go out on my own. After spending a year supporting families on their birthing journey, I wanted to continue to educate myself on how to support my clients not only through birth, but through the 4th trimester. In June of 2019, I attended a spinning babies workshop and became a Postpartum Doula through DONA. In September of 2019, I became a Certified Lactation Counselor with The Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice.

I have spent the past 5 years supporting families as they navigate the emotional highs and lows that come with parenthood. I have continued my Doula training and currently hold Birth and Postpartum certifications through Best Doula Training. It is my absolute honor to hold space and serve you, your partner and your family.
