Client Testimonials for Jennifer Darwin

Genève Campbell

I gave birth at UCSF and Jen was both our white glove labor "concierge" as well as my tireless advocate. As a former L&D nurse, the nurses and midwives love and respect her, and everyone on the floor wants to participate in her births. You will attract a dream team of hospital labor support, and for good reason. From working to rotate the baby from posterior to anterior during an arduous back labor, to enabling me to labor at home until nearly transition, to relieving my exhausted husband after an all-nighter, Jen did it all. I was able to have the epidural-free birth I wanted, and it was the most empowering experience of my life. If you're on the fence about getting a doula in general, or working with Jen in particular, do it. We're so, so, so glad we did.
