We recently had our third baby and this was the first time having a postpartum doula. Because of Jen and her support, this was the best postpartum experience I have had, by far. I wish I could go back in time and hire her for past births! Asking for help doesn’t always come naturally to me, but Jen is just amazing- she is so receptive on what could help you. She is an amazing cook and nourished me with the exact type of foods a postpartum woman craves. She played with my girls and had them helping too. She’d pick up around the house and help me with the mounds of laundry that come with having 3 kids. And one of my favorite things was that she gave me self care and was just there to talk about it all- the emotions, the challenges everything. She’s like a birth and mom guardian angel. So so grateful for her!

Jen was such a fantastic support for us as our birth doula. Our meetings leading up to our son's birth were informative and her style really complemented the hypnobirthing class I was taking at the time. She was a crucial support for both my husband and myself on the day of our son's birth. When Jen was in the birthing room she made me feel safe, understood and supported. She was so intuitive to my needs during labor and she was a fantastic advocate for me with nurses and hospital staff. Our labor was very long and came with a few curve balls, and Jen was always careful to make sure I was truly comfortable with every decision I made, especially when things went off course from our birth plan. I will be forever grateful for all of the photos she took as our son was being born; because of her, the most important moment of our life was well documented while allowing us to be fully in the moment with our newborn son. Postpartum, she was a wealth of knowledge and I'm so grateful for her guidance, especially since this was our first child. The tips and tricks she taught us truly saved us during those early weeks. We don't know what we would've done without her!

Jen embodies beauty and kindness, making her the perfect Doula for my prenatal and postpartum care. Her unwavering presence and dedication were evident as she attended to my every need, alleviating any worries about childbirth and newborn care. Throughout the entire birth experience, her support and nurturing made all the difference. Jen's weekly visits, filled with treats and assistance ranging from newborn care to soothing massages and belly binds, were invaluable. My husband and I are deeply thankful for Jen's calming and lighthearted energy, and we consider her not just a Doula but a lifelong friend gained through this journey.

Jen was an amazing she is thoughtful and kind. She is definitely the ride or die person you want through your labor and delivery. Jen to me is a Swissarmy knife of knowledge. It was extremely helpful to have her along side us through our birth and postpartum journey. Grateful to her for the support and encouragement in becoming first time parents.
