Becca Hansel

I am so grateful to have had Jennifer as my doula for my second birth. I didn't have a doula for my first birth, which ended up being quite a traumatic experience for me. After finding out I was pregnant with my second child (a surprise), I struggled with fear and anxiety leading up to the second delivery. Jennifer was patient, kind, knowledgeable and was willing to go the extra mile to help me in my birthing journey. She never seemed judgmental of where I was emotionally, or of my thoughts or feelings. She was understanding, sympathetic and encouraging. She provided lots of great resources. She was right there during the labor, a calming presence, providing encouragement and offering the reminders I needed. I am so thankful for her assistance prior to & during the birth (which went a lot better)!

Jenn helped to prepare me for my third pregnancy before, during and after the arrival of my son. During my pregnancy, Jenn recommended several books to gain insight and mental focus for the natural childbirth I desired. She also took the time to help calm my fears created from my previous two pregnancies. Once my labor began, I was able to remain calm and confident because I knew she would convey my desires to the doctor and nurses when I would be unable to. With Jenn’s help, everything on my Birth Wish list was met! What a rush, after the complication and drug free arrival of my baby. Baby Peter arrived in such a gentle, caring manner, that I feel it has shaped him to be the happiest of babies and most easy to care for. We would live in a better world if all babies arrived to mothers who felt as much love, caring and support as I did from my Doula, Jenn!

Hiring Jennifer to be our doula was one of the best decisions we made as a part of our birth plan. I felt so encouraged and supported throughout the whole process, I'm not sure I could have done it without her! From a tactical perspective, Jennifer identified various birthing positions, and other tools to use during labor -- like a birthing ball and the tub -- things that I might not have thought of without her.

I was also grateful to have her there alongside my husband. I could hear them talking about the different phases, but I was in the zone, and didn't really want to talk. My husband really appreciated the support he received from her as well.

Jennifer is warm and comforting. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. My husband and I are both 100% sold on having a doula for labor and delivery, and will certainly call Jennifer again if/when we have another baby!
