My husband and I reached out to Jenn after my sister recommended her. I also happened to go to High school with her but hadnt really kept in touch much since then. I am so thankful to have had her there for the birth of my son and throughout my pregnancy. She was always available to answer any questions I had. Having her there once I was in labor gave my husband a chance to rest for a bit after almost 20 hours of labor. She also supported me through getting an epidural and my C-section. I was very fortunate that the hospital allowed her and my husband into the OR with me. After delivery she helped me with latching my son and breastfeeding. She was available through texts over the next several weeks to help and support me with my Breastfeeding journey and all those new mom questions that seem to arrise. My son is now 2.5 months old and we still stay in touch. I highly recommend Jenn, her professionalism and knowledge as well as her emotional support during the toughest 26 hours of my life made my birth experience so much easier.

After my cesarian for my first child, i knew immediately that i would want to try to have a vbac for my second child. Jenn was a pillar of strength during my c section, so i knew i had to have her on my team for my vbac. She was, once again, an invaluable asset. She shared information, statistics, and tips during my pregnancy that reinforced my decision. She was there for me when my family told me i couldnt do it, or that it was too dangerous to try. She helped me navigate 3 weeks of false labor. And when the time came for my vbac, jenn supported and encouraged me from start to finish. She kept me calm and focused, talked me through transition when i thought i was dying, and helped us welcome our second daughter into the world. Jenn even helped hold my breast to feed my newborn while i was loopy and being stitched up. She wasn’t just our doula, she has become family to us and we are so grateful to have had her present for the best days of our lives.

Let me start off by saying I couldn't have gone through my labor without Jenn by my side. As soon as I had decided to have an all-natural birth, I knew immediately I wanted Jenn to be my birth doula, and she was everything I needed by my side, and more. Upon signing up with her, I knew I was going to be taken care of and have an amazing experience. She was able to take the anticipation and fear out of an all-natural birth and assure me I could do it. She was my coach, friend, and support through the entire process. I ended up having a long active labor and she never left my side. She was right there with her essential oils, breathing and movement techniques, and massages. She held me while I was in the middle of contractions and didn't think I could stand or squat anymore. She gave me encouragement and determination. She also kept my husband calm and engaged, and deciphered anything the nurses and doctors were trying to tell me while they were the last thing I wanted to concentrate on. I seriously couldn't have had the all-natural labor I wanted without you, Jenn. Thank you!

Jenn is as compassionate as she is knowledgeable. I trusted her to give me accurate info--AND I trusted her to treat my chaotic pregnant lady emotions with respect. She is the perfect blend of understanding and reasonable! No mumbo-jumbo new-age foolishness with her, only proven science and a listening heart. You really can't go wrong with Jenn as a doula! The best of both worlds for sure.

Having Jenn as our doula was undoubtedly the highlight of my high risk and complicated pregnancy (aside from meeting our daughter) . She was there for me at all hours, available for emotional support and to answer all questions I came up with. I asked for a c section after 53 hard hours of labor, and I was full of guilt. Jenn assured me that I wasn't a failure, and even held my hair back when I was sick in the recovery room. She helped me with breastfeeding, even going so far as to come to my home when my daughter was 3 months old following her lip tie revision. We will absolutely be working with Jenn again when we have baby #2, and both myself and my husband would recommend Jenn to anyone in need of a birth and postpartum doula.
