Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
I have experience at local Sutter, Kaiser, and Mercy hospitals as well as UC Davis and Marshall Medical. My doula services will compliment and greatly enhance your (and your birth partner's) hospital experience. I often work with women who want epidurals, as well as women who are seeking natural hospital births. I work well with OB's and nurses as well as Midwives. My job is to support mom and her birth partner in their decisions about their birth.
Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
Often women will labor at home for a while before heading to the Birth Center. I am available for home support as well as at the Birth Center. We will spend time during prenatal visits talking about how to be prepared for each part of your labor.
Attends home births? Any Home Birth
I enjoy attending homebirths. I work well with Midwives and laboring moms, tending to any needs either may have (of course keeping mom at the TOP of the priority list). Sometimes this includes helping with siblings, ensuring mom and/or birth partner are properly hydrated & nourished, and even labor massage when desired. The only restriction is that I will not attend a planned unassisted homebirth (homebirth without a midwife or other licensed medical professional in attendance)

I decided on a doula late in pregnancy. I met Jenica and knew right away she was the perfect fit for us. Towards the end of my pregnancy my Dr said I should be induced. This was exactly what I didn't want. Jenica helped us through what ended up being almost a week of trying to deliver. She has experience that helped and what she wasn't too sure she found answers right away.  (of course I had those strange situations) She was very supportive for my boy friend too! Made sure he was resting and eating. I never felt alone during this long process which at times could have been scarey, but with her information I knew I was making the best decisions for my little baby! I would recommend Jenica and would use her again if God blesses us with more babies.

We interviewed alot of doulas, which I recommended to anyone. Jenica was the best for us because of her loving, caring and supporting nature. She truly cares about you, your birth and your baby. Even before our baby was born I received the best advice from Jenica which ended up making the birth of my second baby be the greatest most powerful birth I could have imagined. I felt supported in my every decision. Before, during and after birth. I loved how Jenica was open to any birthing environment and never pushed any agendas of her own. She is totally and completely there for you. She is also a prenatal masseuse and I had some of the best massage ever. Because of Jenica I had the birth I wanted. I highly, highly, highly recommend her!

 Jenica was a life saver during both my labors & deliveries. She was also really helpful during my pregnancies in answering any questions or concerns or fears I was struggeling with. She was so wonderful at making sure my husband was apart of this experiance as well, & was more than happy to answer any of his questions or concerns as well.

When the big day came, Jenica was by our side. She was extreamly helpful during the whole laboring process. She had amazing tips to help with dealing with contractions, she was an amazing support when things got tough & was very informative when things didn't go as planned.

I would recomend Jenica to everyone interested in having a doula! She was amazing!!
