Testimonial for Jennese Birritteri

This is the message I sent Jennese after the delivery- "I don't think I can express in words how much your support meant to us and to me". But I have to try and share with you the difference she made to our journey from couple to family.

In addition to the testimonials, it was the way my husband and I just clicked with her at our first meeting that did it. Jennese was easy to talk to & her confidence reassured and comforted me. While working on the birth "plan", she was non-judgemental, providing information but leaving decisions to us. She helped us articulate our hopes and fears so we were on the same page regarding birth preparation. I wanted a doula to ground us and help my husband help me so I could focus entirely on the process as no close friend/family member was going to be there. She gave us exactly that, mentally equipping us for the birth. After a pregnancy plagued with nausea, anemia, dizziness etc, I was finally starting to feel confident about the last stage.

Then the pandemic restrictions hit. I was perturbed by how things I was drawing my strength from were slipping away. However, with changing times Jennesse adapted as well. Our prenatal sessions went online. She observed us using the rebozo (a beautiful gift from her) and we practised how to use it while pushing. She was available via phone and text and guided me through the initial false alarm and the real deal of labor. When admitted at 2 am, she stayed on the phone with my husband for hours until our son was born. She coached me through him and I could feel the energy change when he started to worry and she calmed him down. The support and comfort of having someone experienced in our corner was invaluable. This continued postpartum where she gave me a safe space to share my rollercoaster of emotions while I made sense of it all.

Jennese- thank you. You really helped me and us navigate the biggest change in our lives in one of the most challenging times.
