I was referred to Jennifer late in my pregnancy by a yoga friend who had her as a doula and was I so lucky to have been able to have her as my doula! She answered all of our questions throughout and was incredibly knowledgeable--often elaborating on our inquiries which left us feeling more confident, empowered and safe, which was especially appreciated since this was our first birth. She was very communicative, punctual and above all seasoned in all types of birthing situations and it really shows. She knows how to best prepare you for the entire process, whether it's what foods to eat and stay away from, what exercises to do and how often, what to expect postpartum and so much more--definitely don't forget your pen and paper because you'll need to take notes! And, even with all of the information she gives you before the actual labor and delivery, during labor and delivery, she will still be there to advocate for you if needed and help you process/weigh any real time decisions you may need to make in the moment and we absolutely needed her in that respect for our experience-- we truly don't know what we would have done without her. She also is understanding of and respectful of all birthing experiences/preferences; her goal is to help you achieve your dream birth as best as she can. She is caring and fun but also takes her role very seriously. We are hoping to try for another little at some point and fingers crossed we are able to have Jennifer as our doula again. For those in the back, I repeat: Jennifer's the best.
