Jennifer was so amazing as my doula, seriously such a great decision to have her at my birth! Jennifer has such a sweet and gentle way about her that makes you feel so safe. She is so ‘there’ but totally not invasive. She is great at including the husband in the birth, not isolating him or taking over whatsoever. Her words of comfort and wisdom really helped me during some of the hardest contractions and made me feel like it was really going to be ok, which as anyone who has given birth knows is huge! Jenn never made me feel embarrassed or awkward and just had such a calming, almost motherly presence about her which was just beyond comforting! She also supported me after the birth soooo much as I pestered her with tons of questions, she is one knowledgeable woman! Both my husband and I are beyond happy that we had Jennifer as our doula ??

Jennifer was such a calm presence during the birth of my daughter. I so appreciated having her there by my side. She seemed to know just what to do to keep me in a relaxed state when I thought I would be anything but!! Jennifer was very knowledgeable and was a great advocate for my baby and for my care. My pregnancy was high-risk, but this did not faze her and I was pleasantly surprised by how much she knew about my relatively uncommon disease and the effects pregnancy had on my health. She went above and beyond for my daughter and I! She helped to keep me calm when my little one had a brief stop in the NICU too. Just having her there was such a reassurance. She was also somewhat of a baby whisperer as she held my little one to allow me to sleep (sigh!). Thank you so much for everything, Jennifer!

Jenn was my doula for my third birth (I didn't have a doula for the first two).  The experience was wonderful and I am so glad she was there.  She was very attentive emotionally and physically during the labour.  At the last minute we stayed home for the birth as things progressed quickly (the midwife was there as well).  Jenn was so calm and helpful throughout the experience.  Looking back the birth couldn't have gone better!
