supplemental services

Supplemental services available include plant-based nutritional guidance, meal planning and meal preparation as well as ongoing post-partum support.

Postpartum  moms need lost of nutritious foods to support healing and  breastfeeding. A plant-based diet may also help you feel more energized  and  focused throughout your day.  I am a huge foodie so I love going to food festivals, sharing  recipes and cooking for my family, specifically plant-based meals. I  have been vegan since 2013 and a vegetarian several years prior to that.  It's been a journey for sure and I know I made some nutrition mistakes along the way but I've learned what works for myself and my family and I'm excited to share that with you. Together, we'll come up with balanced customizable and delicious food options that are adapted to fit your needs.   


Grocery shopping and cooking meals can feel so overwhelming, especially when you are starting a family or adding onto your existing one. Sometimes it can feel downright impossible to leave the house when you're too tired and busy caring for a newborn. Trust me, I've been there. As both a full-time working mom and full time stay at home mom. But I want you to know that you're not alone and it doesn't have to be complicated. I've gone from barley knowing how to boil water to preparing full-course (occasionally themed) meals.

My goal is to educate and support women in their childbearing years along with their infants for a healthy lifestyle today and for a mindful, loving future.

Testimonials

"Jenn was our doula for my fourth pregnancy and delivery.  When I met Jenn, immediately I felt comfortable around her. She is sweet, kind and easy to talk to. I loved how she went out of her way to suggest natural ways to help me care for me and my baby boy. Jenn even made me homemade elderberry syrup to help me kick a nasty cold I was having a hard time getting rid of.  She was always available to help me or answer my questions. She did a wonderful job supporting my husband and I during labor and delivery. She stayed by my side encouraging me to stay focused, confident and comfortable during labor. She helped my husband out a great deal taking turns putting counter pressure on my back to help my back labor. I would recommend Jenn as a doula to anyone who asked. -Michelle Durocher
