"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."

"Jennifer has been and is absolutely amazing! From the first day I spoke to her on the phone, she had the best vibe about her. I knew that I wanted her to be our doula from that moment. What drew me close to her was that she’s vegan. I’ve been on my vegan journey for over a year now and it was really comforting knowing that she’s vegan also. What I liked about her the most was that she wasn’t judgmental about the things I told her I wanted and she supported me 100%. When we met her in person, she was so warm and just absolutely full of life and love. When my significant other met her, he told me once we got in the car that she was the one he wanted in the room with us. Because of her, my labor and delivery went so smooth. I’m not going to lie, it was painful but she helped me through the pain and without her I wouldn’t of been able to do it. She made sure everything went the way we wanted it to, she’s phenomenal. I found her on google and I’m so glad that we chose her and she chose us!"

"My girlfriend was so happy when she found Jennifer, she kept telling me we had to have her at the l&d because she was vegan and just wonderful. When I met her, I knew she was going to be perfect to have in the room and help my girlfriend and me get through the labor. She taught me different techniques to help while she went through contractions and she made everything so easy. The way she affirmed my girlfriend with kind and supportive words and made sure she was comfortable during it all really made me happy. I felt really comfortable knowing that I could leave the room and my lady wouldn’t have to be alone. I know that if we decide to have another baby, we will definitely be having Jennifer there by our side."

“Having Jenn as part of our birth journey and postpartum was one of the best things that could have happened to us. As preparation for labor, she taught us some techniques to help us cope with the contractions, which proved to be incredibly life-saving during the four days I was laboring at home. During those challenging times, being able to have Jenn’s support really helped us get through it. From Jen we really valued, not only her knowledge and resources about the process, but also how generous she was with her time — always available to answer any questions and kept checking on us to see how things were going. We totally recommend Jenn. We feel lucky to have had her as doula in our journey and we are sure that you will feel the same.”

"Giving birth during the COVID-19 pandemic had its challenges! Including not being able to have Jenn with us in person at the hospital. Is it even possible to have a doula if they’re not with you in person? Yes! Thanks to technology she was with us before, during, and after. Jenn regularly checked in with me on how I was doing and especially in working through the additional stress due to the pandemic. She wanted to make sure I felt secure in my birth plan and if not she reassured me she was there to listen and help guide me till I was. Through it all she conducted herself professionally but also in a very caring manner. Additionally, over the course of a few weeks, she and her family put extra effort into staying healthy during their shelter-in time with the expectation she would be joining us whenever I went into labor. From the start, Jenn made it her goal that I felt as prepared as possible for labor and delivery as well as entering 4th trimester with my newborn."
