Clients say…

Jenny was helpful from the beginning. She had a lot of information to help us think through our birth preferences. When my husband finally called her the day I was in labor, Jenny was calm and soothing. She was very helpful keeping me comfortable during the toughest part of the birth. Jenny stayed with us after the birth to make sure we felt settled. After the birth, she checked a lot. She also visited two weeks later. She brought her different baby wearing devices and troubleshot breastfeeding issues with us. Jenny is a jewel to have during your labor.

Let’s Face it. Birth is Weird.

And everyone – from your mom to your doctor to your college roommate – has something to tell you about it. They all know what will happen, what has to happen or what can’t ever in a million years happen. But the fact is, a lot of that stuff they tell you is a myth, based on nothing more than tradition or provider preference. In this quick little guide, you’ll get an evidence-based overview of 10 common myths about labor and birth. Get a free copy for requesting a consult!

Curious about midwives working in hospitals in Bethesda? Check this out!

What’s it like to give birth in Bethesda, MD? The only hospital in Bethesda is Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. So unless you are in the military or are planning a home birth, it is pretty unlikely that you will actually give birth in the city of Bethesda. But, just up the road, there is the fantastic Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. This hospital has a stellar midwifery group as well as some great OBs who work there. At Silver Spring Doula, we LOVE Midwifery Care Associates, who pare art of the OB group of Simmonds, Martin, and Helmbrecht. Both of these practices have offices near Bethesda. MCA is awesome, for real. Their midwives offer evidence-based midwifery care in a state-of-the-art hospital setting. They actually care about you and your hopes for your birth. You are not just a number with them. Because the nurses at Shady Grove work with midwives a lot, they are all well-versed in supporting normal birth. This is HUGE if you are planning an unmedicated birth! Even if you’re planning to get an epidural , MCA is a great choice for women-centered care in Bethesda.

Jenny was a wonderful doula. Right away we felt so comfortable with her. She brought lots of helpful information to our meetings. During the end of my pregnancy I had a lot of pressure to be induced due to preexisting high blood pressure. Jenny was available to talk to me about this and help me in making my decision. She helped me feel like we were making an informed decision. When I was in labor Jenny’s help was invaluable. She was really great about helping me stay focused and breath during contractions. I know that I would not have been able to labor naturally for as long as I did without her help. She was amazing! If we have another child we will definitely have Jenny be our doula again. I can’t say enough good things about Jenny! We would definitely recommend her to anyone.

My husband and I couldn’t have had a better person attending our birth. She has such a comforting and familiar energy about her. Jenny was thorough and informative at our sessions leading up to labor. She took the time to familiarize herself with my individual needs. During labor, she was right there, doing what the nurse and midwife couldn’t. It felt like I had a best friend there, encouraging me to give it my all. She went to the store to get items we needed since our baby was early and we arrived at the birth center unprepared. Being a mother herself, it was nice to have someone around that had already been where I was. We can’t think of anything she could have done differently. She was fantastic from our first interview with her, to the home visit to check on me and baby. Her services were priceless.
