Testimonial for Jeni Dansand

I cannot put into words the sincere gratitude I have for Jeni; and I would go as far as to say she changed my life. I have always wanted an unmedicated birth and knew before I was pregnant that I wanted a doula. When my husband and I found out we were expecting, I was hit with a huge wave of anxiety thinking about the “pain” of childbirth and not mentally being able to get through it.

We decided to also do her birth education. Through these classes we learned SO much fantastic evidence-based information that left me empowered. She was always willing to stop and answer our questions, and I had A LOT of them as I was not only intrigued, but also working through my anxiety. Jeni took time to personally relate with me, meet me where I was, and provide additional resources that would help me achieve the birth I wanted. When I was overwhelmed by the book she recommended my husband and I read together (The Birth Partner), she offered an alternative that was right up my alley (Birthing from Within) AND offered me to try Hypnobabies. The Hypnobabies mental training was incredible. Any time my anxiety crept in, I would listen to the affirmations, and I felt recentered.  Her birth education was extremely comprehensive and truly helped us feel as prepared as possible and when we shared our birth preferences with our provider she said “wow, this is the mother of all birth plans”.

When it came time for our little guy to join us, we were met with a variety of complications, Jeni was with us every step of the way. She answered every phone call, reminded us of all that we had learned and ensured we felt confident in the decisions we were making. She joined us at the hospital upon our request, supported both of us in every way imaginable and has continued to be an amazing resource postpartum. I cannot imagine our experience without her, and you can bet that she will be at all our future births. She is worth her weight in gold.
