Client Testimonials for Jennifer Carr

Courtney Jo Rhine

Jennifer was our doula for our first pregnancy (July 23rd 2016). She also did our child birth classes. She is very knowledgeable about what she is doing, and helpful throughout the entire process. All the "stupid" questions I had, she was able to answer. She never made us feel dumb for asking something or not knowing something. My labor & delivery was very difficult and went far away from what was planned (something that no one had control over or was able to change). She stuck by our side every second of the journey. Even in the extremely difficult moments for everyone, I was able to count on Jennifer to be helpful and know what needed to be done. She was even strong and confident enough to send my husband away for a bit when he desperatly needed a break, and was able to handle everything just fine.

One fear I had was Jennifer's? family/personal life getting in the way of my delivery. This is not bc of anything she did or anything that happened, but bc I was so worried of being left alone not knowing what to do if something came up that wasn't planned. She never let anything get in the way of our delivery though. I was very impressed. When she says she is there 100% she means it.
