Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I began my work as a doula offering volunteer services to teen mothers through a program in Milwaukee, WI and was active in the local childbirth profession networking group. I then trained and worked for a postpartum doula program at a large hospital in western Massachusetts. I concurrently completed a year long Beginning Midwifery program. In 2011, a fellow doula and I started Riverbend Doula Network in the Viroqua, Wi area to connect doulas with prospective parents. I took several years intermittently off from doula work when my children where young but remained active in my studies and advocacy. During that time I facilitated a New Parents Group for Open Door Midwifery in Viroqua. I am currently enrolled in a Postpartum Social Support network training through Postpartum Support International. Thank you!

Jaclyn

Our postpartum doula, Jessica Krueger, was amazing. At four months postpartum we would love to still have her here! She slips right into whatever roll that is needed in a super comfortable way. Our 2, 3 year old and newborn all took to her the moment she walked in the door which is so important!  It freed mom (me) up to actually take a shower, take a breath and feel the support I so desperately needed. We recommend her to all mommies and feel like everyone so deserves this kind of excellent support during this huge transitioning process!
