My Mission

My doula passion was ignited in 2010 and is to equip and empower women to achieve the pregnancy, birth experience and postpartum recovery of each client's dream, through endorsement of an individualized care plan approach. I serve the Northern Virginia & the D.C. Metro area and tailor care to promote the well being of the mother, baby, and birth partner throughout the birthing process by providing perspective and encouragement before, during, and after birth.

My Services Include

  1. A free consultation to go over my contract and get to know each other.
  2. A prenatal visit to go over birth wishes.
  3. Unlimited text/phone/email support throughout pregnancy.
  4. Continuous support at birth.
  5. A postpartum visit to go over your birth, help with any newborn questions or problems you're having and give breastfeeding support.

I can discuss medical recommendations with you to offer options and support in your choices, as well as acting as an advocate for your decisions. I will also encourage relaxation, position changes, pain management and comfort measures to decrease the discomforts of labor where possible.

Reviews

 
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."

I can't say enough wonderful things about working with Jennifer.

"She was kind, supportive, motivating, and just a wonderful presence to having throughout my labor.  She was able to assist me and work with my husband to help with pain management.  I ultimately ended up needing to get a c section and I would have thought that I wouldn't necessarily need a doula for that but having Jenn there made all the difference in the world!  She was so helpful when it came time to discuss the options. I would absolutely use Jenn again as she made the experience so much better.  Having an extended labor ( over 40 hours) that results in a c section can be incredibly overwhelming and she absolutely helped keep me calm, assisted with my pain, and was just a wonderful person to have in the room with us to support both myself and my husband."

Hiring Jen was worth every second! I recommend Jen to all my sisters, friends, and will contact her again for my third pregnancy and labor. 

"Meeting Jennifer was a tremendous blessing! Tired of all the interventions with my previous pregnancy, I wanted to go as unmedicated as possible. I knew it would be painful so I started to get Jen's help. From the day I met Jen, she answered all questions and helped me for the big & most special day. That day came and Jen was with me from the beginning to the end, helping me manage every wave with different techniques, just as if solving a puzzle; every technique worked like magic, just like there is one key for every lock. For example, when I was going through transition,  Jen would tell me what to do and/or she would do it for me, the best thing for me was that it often involved my husband.  Even when I was being stiched  up and my husband walked away with the nurses and the baby, Jen distracted by talking to me."
