Testimonial for Jennese Birritteri

After a traumatic 1st birth experience with a difficult recovery, my pelvic floor therapist recommended we look into doulas for our 2nd and I am so glad we did. After our initial interview we were convinced that Jennese would be a welcome addition to our delivery team.

In the virtual meetings we had with Jennese prior to delivery we found her warm, knowledgeable and extremely supportive of our wishes. She would even welcome our daughter's frequent interruptions. I had a lot of hang-ups around this delivery, but Jennese worked with us to create a birth plan that reflected our preferences and coached us on staying flexible.

Once labor started, we quickly realized that I would be going through another prodromal labor, which triggered fears that this delivery would be equally traumatic. With our first the prodromal labor + real labor went on 4 days straight with no break which left me utterly exhausted when it came time to push. Jennese addressed these fears head on and coached me through ~2 days of prodromal + true labor. With her guidance, I was able to stay in good spirits, rest and keep my energy up. I believe this made my labor go faster. 

Once we were at the hospital, we were disheartened to learn that despite months of work our son was malpositioned (like our first). However, this time Jennese worked with my epidural to position me to encourage our son to move on his own. At one scary point, her quick thinking and expertise saved me from a potential emergency C-section. When it came time to push, I was able to do it on my terms in ways that felt natural. At my postpartum check-up my midwife described my delivery as "inspirational" and I honestly do not believe it would have been possible without Jennese's support, which continued postpartum with feeding recommendations and regular check-ins.

We are so grateful to Jennese. If we are ever blessed with a 3rd child we will definitely seek out Jennese's doula services again.
