Simply put, Jennifer is a wonderful human. She is warmly energetic, intuitive, articulate, knowledgeable, and thoughtful.
We initially did not plan to hire a doula until we met Jennifer. After attending a few birth classes that she instructed, we were drawn to Jennifer because of her sense of humor and evidence-based sensibility. We made something of an impulse decision and enlisted her help late in the game (just a few weeks before my due date). Nonetheless, she quickly comprehended our needs and priorities and we immediately felt ten times more confident knowing she’d be by our side.
Jennifer just seemed to know all the right things to ask and say at all the right times. I was 10 days past my due date when we went in for an induction. Jennifer was constantly in touch and appeared immediately after we texted her in the wee hours of the night after I went into labor. During labor, she was incredibly attentive and encouraging. She asked questions that we didn’t think to ask and was careful to confirm things were proceeding as we desired.
My birth experience was surprisingly calm and sweet, and I felt so empowered by Jennifer’s support. Words simply cannot express how grateful I am to have such a positive memory of my son’s birth. It’s truly one of the best gifts. Thank you, Jennifer!
