Testimonial for Jeni Dansand

When we first found out we were pregnant, I knew I wanted a different birth experience than those of my friends and family. I wanted intamacy, connection and calm. From the moment we meant Jeni, we knew she was the perfect fit for our birth experience. Jeni helped coach my husband and I through the last few months of pregnancy. Her birth classes were unmatched to anything you'd receive through a hospital or large scale training. 
Birth day: I was laboring overnight at home knowing I wanted to hold off on going to the hospital for as long as possible. I was connected with Jeni for the entire night and she was there to coach and help us through each part of the laboring at home process. By 4am, we knew it was time to go! Jeni was at the hospital waiting for us and immediately began coaching me through breathing and contractions. When we made it up to the labor and delievery room, things became instinctual, just like Jeni said. She encouraged me to take each birth wave and lean into it, letting my body do exactly what it wanted to. We labored on the toilet, standing over the bed and finally - the golden position - squatting, holding on to the handlebars at the end of the bed. Once we got to that final position, I reached down and felt a head! Baby girl was born 5 minutes later. It was the most magical experience!!! Completely unmedicated, trusting my body to do exactly what it needed to do. I was so proud of myself and having Jeni there to give me the confidence I needed and to support my husband through each part of the process made the birthing process so incredible. 
I cannot recommend or say enough about the tremendous value Jeni brought to our experience. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. If you are contemplating hiring a doula, trust your instinct and do it I promise you will not regret it. 

Jeni - thank you for helping to make this process the most rewarding, incredible part of our lives thus far.
