"Jen was an amazing source of support throughout my pregnancy & delivery- I would hire her again in a heartbeat! She was current on research, well-networked with other doulas and midwives, and very responsive to my millions of questions. Her background in counseling was a real plus when working with busy doctors & nurses during delivery, too. As a single mother, it was a gift to have such a supportive presence during delivery. Cannot recommend her strongly enough!" Mama C.

"I simply cannot imagine my last pregnancy or the <VBAC> of my daughter without Jen's strength, guidance, and support. She and my husband were a dream team for me. I could not have hoped for more from anyone. Jen's passion for helping women believe in themselves and for going above and beyond to help mamas achieve the birth experience that they desire is evident in everything she does. Jen is an extremely dedicated professional; she is on a constant quest to learn more and to be the ultimate resource that all mamas deserve. I could not recommend Jen more highly. I would be happy to share more about my experience as Jen's client anytime if you would like to get in touch. I can promise you that you will be in good hands with Jen as your doula. Her warmth, intelligence, and passion will be a wonderful asset and essential part of your upcoming motherhood experience." Mama C.
"Jennifer has lovely birth energy. It was wonderful to have her with us at this beautiful home water birth." Nancy Wainer, Certified Professional Midwife, author of Silent Knife
"Jennifer was truly a God-send. I had communicated with her for the first time about a week before my waters unexpectedly broke at 33.5 weeks. While I was in the hospital waiting for labor to begin, I phoned her and she came to meet with me. Immediately I knew that I wanted and needed her to help me and my husband through the birth of our second child. The next day when I was induced, Jennifer was available to me via phone, and quickly came to be by my side when I conveyed to her that things were taking a turn for the worse, and the doctor was mentioning an emergency c-section. Although I wasn’t able to continue laboring and have the VBAC that I desperately hoped for, having a doula by my side was an integral part of my birth experience. While I was filled with emotions of anger, disappointment, fear, and happiness, Jennifer was by my side, caressing my head, telling me that I was strong, and reminding me that I would get to see my beautiful baby girl in a matter of moments. Although she only met us a day prior to the delivery of our daughter, I felt like she had been there throughout my entire pregnancy. Jennifer maintained contact with me during my daughter’s stay in the NICU and was thoughtful enough to pay us a visit one afternoon! Her calm and encouraging demeanor made a difficult process a little easier for me and my husband and I am extremely grateful that she was my doula." Mama T.
