Testimonial for Jeni Dansand

I cannot say enough positive things about Jeni! My husband was not overly comfortable about having another person present at my son’s birth; however, after my daughter’s homebirth, I was adamant about having an extra set of hands to help with birth prep and cleanup. Jeni proved to be so much more than that and we were so thankful to have her attend our son’s birth. Jeni put so much time and heart into things like researching ways I could improve my diet, suggestions on supplements to help control my history of post-partum hemorrhage, creating affirmation cards, and so much more. Jeni took the time to learn exactly what we hoped for during the birth process as well as our expectations for her, so when she showed up, she knew where everything was and got right to work on the tasks we needed her to do. She worked quietly in the background, as per my husband’s request, but was by our side whenever we asked her to be. It was so wonderful to not have to worry about anything except for working through labor. She offered suggestions when needed, such as changing positions, eating food, or drinking water. When the labor got tough, she gently encouraged me by pouring hot water on my back and quietly reminding me to breathe my baby down. She had warm and cold compresses readily available and seemed to think about every little detail to make the birth process as smooth as possible. After our son was born, Jeni took a few pictures of our first moments together and then got to work cleaning up so that we didn’t have to worry about anything. Ultimately she was so respectful and considerate of everything we asked for and an irreplaceable member of our birth team. My husband and I were beyond pleased with Jeni and thankful to have her as our doula!
