Testimonial for Jennese Birritteri

Our son was born in October of 2022. We met Jennese through Your Birth Tribe in my second trimester where we immediately clicked with her through doula speed dating. We booked her the same night we met. As loss parents, this was a big decision for us as we needed someone to really understand how pregnancy after loss felt. During our pregnancy, my husband’s mom got sick and passed away 23 days before our son was born. Jennese was there to guide us through this massive loss and all the complicated feelings that came along with it. She used not only her doula training, but her own life experiences to help us navigate it all. When she came for our first prenatal visit, we ended up talking for hours - much longer than we all intended but it just felt like talking to an old friend even though we had just met in person.

It was so great to have Jennese there through a long and difficult labor. But honestly, as I was mostly in ‘labor land’ and then very weak after birth, she was an invaluable person for my husband. She was there with him encouraging him to eat, drink, and was a perfect person to talk through the feelings of suddenly being a dad after a scary delivery on top of all the events of the previous year.

When the baby blues hit when we got home, we were on the phone with her as she helped us through those feelings. And now, I just love to keep up with her as she’s just a great all-around person!

The bottom line is this: our experience was at times quite difficult and Jennese handled it with grace and helped us through at every step. Through loss, a long labor, a scary delivery, roller coaster postpartum, she was there. She encouraged us that there could be grief AND joy, difficulty AND ease, sadness AND happiness. That’s a lesson we hold with us every single day.

Jennese is an incredible person to have in your corner.
