Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I have been working as a survivor advocate and consent educator for the past few years, and come into birth work after finding myself at the immense call towards supporting people through their pregnancy and reproductive journeys, no matter the outcomes. Supporting survivors of domestic and sexual violence to find empowerment and agency within their lives, especially during deep and transformative moments, is of such deep importance to me. Medical advocacy and supporting BIPOC and LGBTQ+ clients through the medical industrial system is important heart-work to me as a community care provider. I am moving towards offering community-based supports such as herbal care, herbal education, and community reproductive and health education outside of and informed by clinical spaces and providers, and am very invested in supporting families of color, and queer/trans families, along their reproductive health journeys and transitions.

Working with Jin postpartum was probably the best investment our family made. Coming home from the hospital and settling in with a new baby was overwhelming, but Jin supporting our family made this new journey and transition easier for all of us. They brought so much light into our house with the best care not only for our new baby but us as new parents. From support with lactation and chest feeding, to cooking hardy and delicious meals, to words of encouragement and just general listening Jin was amazing. They allowed us to show up how we were each week, and affirmed our experiences - both the fun growth moments and the more challenging aspects of newborn life. We felt cared for as a family and we appreciated all that they did to support us. We highly recommend working with Jin if you are given the chance!

We could not have asked for a more loving, kind, competent doula than Jin. We are so grateful to have worked with them during this formative time in our family's life. Jin was communicative and clear, held space for our needs and was flexible about timing. Our baby loved spending time with Jin. It was beautiful how they showed up to hold space for whatever we needed - acupuncture, foot baths, herbal teas, changing our bed sheets, taking out our garbage, holding our baby while we napped. They helped us during lactation struggles in the early days, and encouraged us to do what we needed for our own self care when our baby was a bit older. Jin's loving presence made us all feel calm and well cared for every time. Highly recommend working with this wonderful human!

I am so happy to have found Jin for our birth and postpartum doula. They showed up with the kind of empathy and compassion I didn't even know we needed. They were open and timely with their communication, which was especially helpful for us as first time parents. Jin was so supportive of all of our opinions/thoughts/feelings, offered guidance when asked, and was open to feedback and behavior changes when we needed. They were a fabulous support for myself and my partner during a 48 hour induction/labor/birth process, and a lifesaver for our postpartum days. It was really nice to have a constant source of support with knowledge/experience in the area that weren't the hospital/medical staff, who were constantly going in and out. I highly recommend, and will absolutely reach out to them if we decide to grow our family.

Jin was extremely respectful and supportive of my choices. They modified their approach flawlessly based on my current needs when in labor, vs what I had imagined I would need to feel supported. Assisted us with helpful prenatal moves based on my specific needs, teaching us various methods of comfort, moves for preparing my body for birth, and ensuring we knew when and how to use them. They were wonderful to work with and would strongly recommend them to anyone!! Cannot say enough positive things about their skill, care, and warm personality. Love them!!

Dear Family,

if you are considering having Jin as your birthing dula, I personally would NOT HESITATE.

Jin is a capable and experienced Dula who understands the sacred experience of birthing. Their respect for our boundaries and needs were honored and encouraged. Also, Their voice is soothing and calming, like a steady stream falling down a small collection of polished stones. They bring warmth, refreshment and healing with their presence and years of wisdom. I felt completely safe in their care and instantly knew I didn't need to worry. They worked well with my partner and calmly coached them through 10 hours of labor.

After our home birth, Jin came to visit as often as we needed and was always available to speak through my worries and fears that arose. in my experience, I noticed they are sensitive to all people, accepting and completely nonjudgemental. As a trauma survivor, Jin was able to kindly and lovingly help me through emotional experiences that arose unexpectedly. Furthermore, I could not recommend them higher to any human who feels in their being a desire to work with them.

Trust yourself. You know what you need. Honor your truth.

Jin’s presence and care was an incredible gift to us, helping us navigate a vulnerable postpartum period. We didn’t know what to expect, so we met with them beforehand and created a postpartum vision to help become more clear on our needs and desires for a smooth transition into parenthood. Once baby arrived, they were there physically and emotionally for baby and us, tending to our needs and adaptive to each parent- birthing or not. Every day during the rollercoaster of postpartum was different, and they met us where we were with so much tenderness, skill and amazing energy. Our queer, interracial family felt cherished and honored in such a beautiful way by Jin, and it helped us to feel so excited for our journey as a family in those sacred and challenging first weeks.

Working with Jin was a wonderful experience for my family. I appreciated how much intention they put into their work, and their ability to just “know” what would be most helpful. Their intuitive care helped us all feel supported and held as we adjusted to the arrival of our new family member.

Jin was excellent! They were really attentive to our and our baby's needs, very flexible, and a great communicator. They were always on time, cleaned up after us and themselves (including washing bottles/pump parts and baby laundry), and were great with our pets too! I appreciated their wholistic approach and that they were also able to help us start the transition to the crib. Highly recommend.
