Jen is amazing. I don’t know how I would have made it through labor without her. She helped me think through my hopes and desires beforehand, and then graciously and calmly helped me navigate choices when my plans went out the window during labor. She is so knowledgeable and reassuring. I felt genuinely cared for. My husband was also very grateful for her presence and expertise. She advocated for me with the nurses at riverside for really practical things like getting to use the shower during labor, without causing tension. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with a doula as a first time mom. I highly recommend her!

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Linsey and Jenn and I can't imagine what we would have done without their help. We had recently moved to Ohio and did not have a network in place to help with the birth and they filled the support role for us perfectly. They helped us identify our birth priorities and figure out what we needed to do during the birthing process while we were in a panic. I really liked that we had access to both of them which helped ensure that if one was away on a birth we had another person we were comfortable with. 

Things went so well that we were able to labor for the most part at home where my wife was most comfortable. We definitely intend to use them again when our next child is due (way down the line).

Linsey and Jen are very caring, helpful, and knowledgeable about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum issues. They met with my husband and me twice before the birth, sharing information with us and helping us pinpoint our birth preferences. They also met with us once after the birth to check up on us and make sure we were doing okay. 

When my blood pressure was high at my 39 week checkup and my midwife wanted me to go to the hospital for additional testing, Linsey was really helpful in explaining to me what I would likely experience at the hospital with that additional testing. When my midwife strongly suggested inducing that day because of the high blood pressure, Linsey talked through the pros and cons with my husband and me and was a great sounding board to help us make an informed decision.

Although one of my birth preferences was to birth naturally with no medication, I decided part way through to get an epidual. Linsey was kind and nonjudgmental about that decision, which was wonderful because as a woman in the birthing process, I'm sure it would have been really upsetting to feel judged during such an important moment. Unfortunately, I ended up having to push for nearly 4 hours because my baby was turned a little sideways. Linsey offered valuable suggestions, and my husband and I think that her final suggestion of pointing the bottom of the bed downward a bit was one of the things that really helped to get our baby out! 

After the birth, I had a few questions about breastfeeding, and Jen was really helpful with answering my questions over the phone. She made me feel better as a first time mom who sometimes felt she didn't know what she was doing!

I am really thankful to have had Jen and Linsey by my side for this process. Everything went really well and I have no regrets about how the birth process played out. Thank you!! :)

I took Linsey's hypnobirthing class with our first pregnancy and a refresher class with our 2nd.  The class was so educational and effective at relieving all concerns and fears, that we were confident and excited about the birthing process.   i truly believe that because I was so relaxed and confident, that is why the birth was fast and easy.   I had the same result with the birth of our second son.  Linsey is full of great information and i thank her for the wonderful memories we now have of the birth of both boys.   I highly recommend her as a hypnobirthing teacher and I'm certain her knowledge and great personaility would be perfect as a doula too.
