Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I have been an apprentice midwife at Juneau Family Birth Center for the past 4 years and have acquired a comprehensive knowledge and experience within the child-bearing year which includes supporting families at home, in the hospital, and the birth center setting. Supporting families and doing my part to ensure they have a safe and peaceful birth and postpartum is a process I am passionate about! I've also traveled to developing countries and experienced maternal healthcare there. I recently began traveling to outlying Southeast Alaska communities to support families in their birth experience and can't wait for my next opportunity! Email me with questions or concerns and let me help you develop a plan to create the the birth experience that's best for you and your family.

I have had the pleasure of attending births with Jess as a photographer and I was fortunate to have her at my own birth. Jess is confident, loving, honest, knowledgeable, and so very patient. She is everything you never knew you needed. She is so intuitive about birth and knows exactly what you need when you need it, whether that is a shoulder to cry on, counter pressure, or a firm talking to that boosts your confidence. Apart from the support of my husband I do not think I would have had as wonderful (and it was seriously so wonderful) of a birth. It does not stop there; she was so supportive and helpful even after our daughter was born. I cannot imagine having a baby without the support of someone like Jess. Words do not do justice to express the value having Jess on your birth team will add.
