Testimonial for Jennese Birritteri

Our family chose to work with Jennese during my first pregnancy and if we are lucky enough to bring more children into the world, we will absolutely hire her again in the future. I regularly tell those who will listen that the two best investments I made during my pregnancy were my doula and a chiropractor (who Jennese recommended, so really she gets credit for both). Beginning during my pregnancy, Jennese ensured my husband and I worked together to think about what kind of birth experience we wanted to have. She facilitated meaningful conversations between us and prompted us to think about things we wouldn't have otherwise. She also provided us with amazing resources whether it was evidence-based articles to answer questions I had, referrals to trusted specialists, or pointing us to birth classes that fit with the experience we were hoping for. We approached the birth of our first child feeling as ready as I think it is possible for two new parents to feel. I appreciated that Jennese took the time to really get to know us both and worked with my husband and I as a team, recognizing the birth was not just about me as the birthing person. Due to pandemic restrictions, we had planned for Jennese to attend our birth virtually, but at the last minute, policies changed. Although I am sure Jennese would have been an incredible virtual doula, I am endlessly grateful she was able to be there in person. Jennese and my husband were my advocates in the delivery room, suggesting different positions, ensuring I remembered to stay hydrated, and comforting me with cool washcloths and encouraging words. My husband remarked afterwards that he was impressed with how well Jennese worked with the delivery team and he was thankful to have another set of hands that was focused on my comfort and well being. If you are considering hiring a doula, I recommend Jennese whole-heartedly. Her experience, knowledge, and kind heart will make the perfect addition to your birth team!
