My Mission

Doula Jenn birth doula service’s mission is to equip and support women to achieve the pregnancy, birth experience and postpartum recovery of each client’s dream. Therefore, I take an individualized care plan approach with each client as I understand that birth is not one size fits all.

If you are in the San Diego area, my partners and I can support your birth experience.

As your doula, I provide perspective and encouragement before, during, and after birth. My role is to tailor care that promotes the well being of the mother, baby, and birth partner throughout the birthing process.

I have supported epidural births, unmedicated births, inductions and everything in-between. I have attended water births, high risk births, premature deliveries, VBACs (including a VBA3C), preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, IUGR, stillbirths, “advanced maternal age” and LGBTQP Families. I also have experience in supporting teens and singles.

My goals as your doula are:

  • Encourage you
  • Remind you that your body was made to give birth and that you are capable of it
  • Lift your spirits up when you’re feeling overwhelmed
  • Suggest movement and position changes to help labor progress and help it be less painful
  • Answer any questions you have about procedures or medications
  • Work as a collaborative team with you nurse, doctor and midwife
  • Give hands on support through various comfort measures, including helping your partner know what to do and how to do it
  • Most of all, to allow you every opportunity to achieve the birth you’ve dreamed of.
Doula Jenn supports women to achieve the birth experience of their dreams.

“My mission is to equip and support women in achieving their ideal pregnancy, birth & recovery through a personalized care plan.”

hospital birth with doula

“Jenn is so calm and easy going. She makes the whole process of pregnancy and giving birth seem so manageable and wonderful… Can’t recommend her enough! And I honestly can’t imagine going through pregnancy, birth and post natal ravine with out a doula. It’s a no brainer!”

– Hannah M.

“Jennifer was a Godsend for my family.”

“Originally we had not planned on using a doula, but I am so glad we did. Jennifer was kind and competent. She saved me from back labor by directing me in movements to help flip our baby. She compassionately directed my husband in comforting me during my contractions. She constantly stayed by our side to monitor our baby’s stubbornly dipping heart rate (the nurses and midwives aren’t always in the room). She even helped us get our son’s days and nights regulated! Hiring Jennifer was worth every cent. We are incredibly grateful for her guidance and support before, during, and after labor.”
