Testimonial for Jeni Dansand

I had no idea what a doula was a month or so prior to meeting Jeni. I met a friend who had used Jeni and just raved about her. I thought it was worth my time to meet with Jeni and see if a doula would work for us.

I remember the first time i met her we talked for close to three hours. She seemed so passionate and knowledgeable about her job. I remember going home and telling my husband i learned more in those 3 hours with Jeni than i did in all my OB appointments prior. He kept asking "What is a doula" and i would tell him the best i could from what Jeni said, but mainly that a doula is a birthing coach. After our birthing experience with Jeni, he said he would always use a doula after that and has highly suggested and advocated for doulas in any birthing conversation we get into.

All subsequent meetings with Jeni i learned so much and couldn't get over her passion and knowledge. I knew we made the right choice in our doula decision.  i am so grateful to Jeni for helping with our birth plan and educating me, helping me make the best decision for our family. One of the best decisions she pushed me to do was switch my OB at 36 weeks. I was very dissatisfied and frustrated with my first OB. Jeni had worked with her previously and told me what she knew about her and really encouraged me to switch if i wasn't comfortable. I am so glad i did!

Fast forward to the day of our daughter's birth. Jeni was absolutely amazing! I feel she kept me on track, breathing and taking my mind off the pain. She also made sure my husband was doing good as well! The whole experience was just amazing, i could not have asked for a better doula or better birthing experience, the whole thing was great. Our OB, nurses, Jeni, everyone was amazing, but if it wasn't for Jeni, i am not sure our birth would have went as it did, and instead it went better than we could have expected. I would definitely use Jeni again and recommend her to anyone!!
