Testimonial for Jennese Birritteri

I found Jennese in my third trimester with my second,hopeful VBAC, baby. Upon my initial chat with her, I knew I needed her on my team. She was my cheerleader, some ground to stand on and a touch of a back bone I needed. It just felt right.

I thought I just needed someone to help me during the physical labor.  Unknowingly, what I also needed was someone to help me through the mental labor that is processing your previous birth, truly pplanning for a new experience and navigating the emotions of adding a child to the family. Jennese, however, knew. Without ever saying what I needed, she was able to pick up on cues to help me build up my confidence and supported fully.

She was able to talk me off the ledge when I was spiraling and held my hand when I was nervous. She also checked in with my husband to answer any questions, qualm any fear and give a confidence boost when needed. When I was struggling with the prospect of dividing my time between my two babies, she listened through my tears and provided the words of support I needed. When I was scared to change providers she empathized while also cheering me on.

During my birth she was a calm, confident, force in my corner; rooting me on and holding my hand (or leg!). She helped me navigate intense contractions, position changes, comfort measures, and spoke powerful birth affirmations to reassure me I was doing great.

Her care continued for the following weeks after birth; she continued to check in on our new family. After our official time together ended, I was so sad. Jennese is truly a kind and loving soul and someone that everyone should know.

I am unsure of how my birth would have gone if she wasn’t a member of my team but I can confidently say, it happened the way it did because she was. She helped me achieve a beautiful, powerful, and successful VBAC. Jennese is the right amount of gentle, perfect dose of reality, a touch of sass and a whole lot of heart.
