Olena Yatsura

Jen became my doula soon after I suddenly found myself a single mom and my due date was

just two months away. She took me under her wing with compassion and understanding. I felt

as soon as we met that I was important to her and the process of my birth meant as much to her

as it did to me.

She met me for 3 prenatal appointments - each time with a new focus on concerns I had, pain

measure techniques, relaxation, breastfeeding and postpartum planning. She was an incredible

resource from the day we met, until now while she still visits me postpartum almost 5 weeks

after giving birth.

My birth went amazing! I felt prepared and safe. I have no idea what I would have done

without her. She fully supported me in all my decisions. We tried every labouring position and

when my body needed more relaxing she encouraged some water therapy in the shower. She

thought of everything, even providing music and dimming the lights. She reassured me that

everything was going well and that she believed in me, because of her I believed in myself

too. Jen supported me at the hospital for 13 hours and breastfeeding was a success within an

hour of birth. She has visited me every week since my daughter was born, coming each time

with new information, helping hands and getting me back into the swing of life. She has even

provided me with some baby carriers from her babywearing library.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Jen. She has gone above and beyond what I expected from a doula. I highly recommend her.
