Jennifer was wonderful. She was calm, comforting and extremely knowledgeable about the phases of labor and what would be helpful at each point. I truly believe I was able to have the natural childbirth I wanted without an epidural, because she was there with me. She constantly provided me with new positions to try to allow labor to progress naturally. She not only provided me with physical support but mental and emotional support as well. It was so helpful to have her there to give my husband a break when he needed it. I felt like she was calming when I needed her to be, but was also able to get me to focus when I felt like it was too much to handle. I could not recommend Jennifer more if you are looking for a doula. For reference I had a 26 hour labor, 12 hours of which were at the hospital.
Jennifer was wonderful! She stepped up to help me at the last minute after I went in for a routine appointment and was told I needed to be induced that day. My regular doula was not available so I was very thankful to have Jennifer's help.
Jennifer reached out to me right away and was available and very responsive to me by phone and text until it was time to come to the hospital. Because I had to be induced unexpectedly, I felt overwhelmed and stressed. Jennifer helped me come up with questions to ask the doctors and she was very supportive of my choices and respectful of the doctors and nurses.
Jennifer has a background in massage and aromatherapy so she was able to provide stress relieving techniques and offered hands on assistance when I was experiencing discomfort. She was a champ and provided great support for me and my family. Thank you, Jennifer!
