Jessica Guerriero

Jenn Seif is one of the most amazing women I have ever met! We were so blessed to have her in attendance of our home birth this past August. As a family we instantly felt at ease and open with Jenn, we really connected with her on a human level. It was refreshing to feel like the center of attention when it came to our birth and prenatal care. Jenn is gentle, informative and detailed in her work. She made every visit feel more like a visit from a friend than from a care provider, which for me was a big deal because we just connected. We are very lucky to remain friend with Jenn and her family still and the gifts she has given me as both a service provider and as a friend are immeasurable. I know that you'll love Jenn as much as we do!
