Jennifer is a consummate professional. She is trustworthy, responsible, hygienic, friendly, prompt, and takes direction very well. Jennifer was there when I needed help the most, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a post partum doula. My children and I will always remember her for her cheerful and friendly demeanor.

Jen was a lifesaver for my family and me during the "fourth trimester" after welcoming our second daughter. I had a tough time with my firstborn and experienced postpartum depression. I wanted to be proactive this time, enlisting support ahead of time. From our first meeting, I knew I could trust Jen to take good care of us. We worked with her for almost three months.

Throughout our time working with Jen, she had a remarkable knack for knowing exactly what I needed, whether that was a meal, a break or a nap. She is extremely punctual, responsible, flexible and full of energy without being at all overwhelming. She has a sixth sense with newborns and a seemingly neverending supply of patience and knowledge. Jen was also great with my three year old, helping to entertain her and provide some much-needed attention at a time she was feeling left out. 

Jen truly made my postpartum period much more enjoyable and easier to manage. I highly recommend Jen to all families seeking a postpartum doula!

As my due dated approached, I couldn’t help but be intimidated by the common tropes of new motherhood: the exhaustion, the chaotic pile-up of dirty dishes and laundry, the isolation, the frantic internet-searching for practical advice, the inability to eat or shower—let alone heal. Added to this, I was expecting twins. I could not be more thankful to Jennifer for ensuring that this cliché was not my reality. What you need to know about Jennifer is that she is professional, unobtrusive, upbeat, informed, frank, non-judgmental, and tirelessly active. She ran errands, helped keep the nursery stocked and organized, cooked, washed dishes and clothes, helped me figure out breast- and bottle-feeding, and assisted in caring for the babies. Mostly importantly, she made everything logistical recede into the background, so that I could focus on recovery and bonding with my babies. Bringing home two healthy girls was my dream come true. Jennifer provided me with the rest and support I needed in order to experience that joy fully, in the moment.
