Testimonial for Jeni Dansand

My husband and I had Jeni for the birth of our twins! Leading up to the birth I had a bunch of questions and some anxiety with how the birth would go. Jeni was great as my go to person for asking questions about anything! I could text her anytime and she always gave a prompt reply. She was not pushy or opinionated, she just shared the facts and let us make the final decision. She was also very encouraging during my pregnancy, I loved receiving her weekly congrats texts for making it another week with our babies inside me! I am so thankful she helped us set up a birth plan as well. During labor we were able to correspond with her and keep her updated with my progress and she was very helpful with ideas and telling us what was what. Although I hated it, she suggested me sitting on the toilet to keep contractions regular, and it worked! She helped us figure out when was best to go to the hospital. It was just so nice to have someone to communicate with through labor at home. We really appreciated having her at the hospital to keep my husbands spirits up through my long labor! She was respectful of my faith and recited Bible verses with me which was so helpful. She came to the birth with a shirt that had birth affirmations on it and at first I thought, "that's so cliche!" But near the end of my labor I was reading her shirt over and over to help me make it through! I had back pain during contractions and she knew just where to put pressure to help. Jeni also took pictures of the labor and delivery which I can't wait to see! And she reminded us of our birth plan and gave suggestions as to what to ask the nurses and doctor. After my 1st baby came naturally, they had to do an emergency c-section for our 2nd baby. They wouldn't let my husband or Jeni to stay in the room, so they went back to the labor room with our 1st daughter to wait and my husband was grateful she was there to wait with him. I would have Jeni attend the births of any future children of ours!
