Jodi is a fantastic doula. I'm a Family Physician, holding OB creds, and I think Jodie offers solid, safe doula practices, and is a very valuable member of the care team.

We enjoyed her classes, and I think my wife really liked being educated about the birthing process.  She went from "go-with-the-flow" to being an active patient, invested in care.  

She stays with families until the delivery, even if there has to be an operative delivery. She also offers a balanced approach, and ensures that safety and the PATIENT'S PRIORITIES are heard. She does so in a calm manner that is not adversarial with other members of the care team.  She's seasoned, level-headed, and knows her medicine.

She does not push services that aren't value-added or non-evidence based. The services she offers with classes are also very helpful and are empowering for those giving birth, and spouses alike!



I took Jodi's birth class, and she attended the delivery of my June baby. Her advice and guidance helped me make decisions throughout my challenging delivery. I had planned on a low intervention birth, but that was not in the cards. Whenever a new intervention was proposed, I knew what questions to ask to make my decision because of what I learned from Jodi.

We loved working with Jodi. She helped us to feel educated about our options, with the goal of having a natural birht, but planning to be prepared for any eventuality. She helped me (the birhting parent) to name my specific fears and anxieties around birth and to have an action plan in place if those things did occur.

She was a huge asset to my partner during birth, giving him suggestions about how to help me and offering insights into what was happening. She was a very calm steady presence and helped support any decisions we made without pushing us into anything.


Woudl absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for birht education or support!

Jodi was an incredible doula and educator as we prepared for the birth of our first baby. Jodi got to know me and my husband while we took her Evidence Based Birth class via zoom and through several in-person meetings. Jodi took the time to get to know us and helped me build out a birth plan based on my preferences - and she was able to help address all the questions I had about childbirth and provide useful guidance about options. Thanks to Jodi I was able to release my fears about birth and I felt prepared, and even excited leading up to the birth of our daughter - and I was able to have the positive unmedicated hospital birth I had hoped for and welcome our first baby with confidence. Jodi helped me through labor and delivery and was a huge support to my husband as well so that he could act as an advocate for me. I truly can’t imagine doing it without her and I know it would have been a much different and more stressful experience with a higher probability of unnecessary interventions. Jodi was always responsive, caring and able to provide information to address our questions before and after childbirth.

I absolutely recommend Jodi’s doula services for anyone who is expecting!

Dr. Jodi was so helpful during my labor, and I am forever thankful to have had her by my side through this process. She helped educate me on the different interventions that the hospital may offer in different situations, and created a birth plan that worked for me. As a first time mom, I went into childbirth blind. I knew that I wanted to have an unmedicated birth, and wanted to avoid an induction at all cost. Thankfully, Jodi helped educate me on the different scenarios because I did end up needing an induction, and I was able to use the knowledge she shared during our prenatal visits to make informed decisions during that induction. She supported me through the induction process, answering any questions I had. Once my contractions got a little more difficult to handle on my own, I called her and she came to the hospital right away. Jodi gave me tips on how to breathe through and handle my contractions, while using positive affirmations to encourage me to keep going. Jodi also kept my husband informed on the different things he could expect from me at all stages of labor, and also different ways he could help me handle the pain of my contractions. She helped to keep me focused on my goal, and I was able to achieve the unmedicated birth I wanted, despite the obstacles thrown my way. More importantly, I felt informed and educated while making decisions. Medical decisions and hospitals can be intimidating, but Dr. Jodi helped make it less so. Thank you for all of your help!

Dr. Jodi was wonderful! Her research based knowledge was so helpful when developing my birth plan and answering my many questions that I felt confident I was making safe and smart decisions for myself and baby. When I had doubts about giving birth in a hospital and having a natural birth, Jodi knew exactly what to say, reminding me of my birthing goals, which helped me feel that I was strong enough and able to give birth anywhere! With Jodi's help, I felt calm and relaxed during labor and was able to have the natural water birth that I wanted!



We loved working with Jodi! We moved to a new area with no family around and knowing we had her in our corner during our pregnancy was SO helpful and reassuring. She is super sweet and always came prepared for our meetings and checked in on us through out the pregnancy! Unfortunatly due to a really quick birth she didn't make it to our house before little man arrived but she stayed with us until after our midwives left :) And went above and beyond bringing us a meal at our postpartum visit and was really flexible with our appointments. We'd definitly recommend her.

After birth i was having trouble with my daughter latching and Jodi was beyond calm and patient with me which made my nerves ease tremendously.
