Clients say…

Ultimately, our goal was a natural birth in a hospital setting and we couldn’t have done it without Jenny. I look back on my birth experience and describe it to friends as “amazing” and “empowering” — Jenny was a big part of that. I will forever be grateful for the role she played in bringing our daughter into the world in the most loving, peaceful environment possible.

You couldn’t regret choosing Jenny as your doula.

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!

Jenny is awesome! I could not have asked for a better doula for the birth of our son. From the first moment my husband and I met her, we knew she was “the one.” She is warm, smart, and wise, and she has a joyful sense of humor that helped to keep us grounded throughout the process. We desired and prepared for a natural birth, which Jenny helped us achieve, despite an almost 10-pound baby! She supported us well in our use of the Bradley method. She was such a rock of encouragement (and massage techniques!) during labor and also really empowered my husband to take the active role we had envisioned. I felt so cared for. As a physician who, before our birth, already had a favorable opinion of doulas in general from the data I’d seen, I must say that Jenny took this appreciation to a new level. She has my most enthusiastic recommendation!

Read More Testimonials!

Jenny was a fabulous doula and I really don’t think we could have gotten through the labor without her. She helped us every step along the way, from the very start weeks before the labor, when she taught me the best positions to get into for laboring, and during the labor she was amazing, all the way to weeks after the labor. During the labor, Jenny helped keep me and my husband calm. She was a great advocate for us and helped push back on the doctors if we were ever unsure about any of the interventions they were pushing. Jenny helped us stick to our birth plan as much as possible, and was so so helpful to my husband, who was a bit of a wreck! Im so glad we had Jenny during our labor and birth and would definitely use her again. Jenny came over a day after our son was born and checked in with us, and also turned our placenta into placenta pills, which I took as a supplement after the birth.

I highly recommend Jenny. She is a fabulous Doula and we would have been lost without her!
