Childbirth Educator, Labor and Birth Doula, Lactation Counselor
Hi, I’m Jenn. My passion for birth began 30+ years ago. Long story short, after a traumatic fear based c-section with my firstborn, I dedicated myself to understanding birth. I successfully sought to achieve VBAC births for my next two children. I earned my certificate as a medical and laboratory assistant and worked in ob/gyn and laboratory services before attending my first birth for a friend in need.
As a lifelong learner, I sought more education and earned a degree in legal studies, and worked in a position helping people who were hurting from different ailments for a few years before returning to the birth world in 2011 where I officially trained to become a certified childbirth assistant. I focused on labor and birth support, postpartum, lactation support, and childbirth education with Commonsense Childbirth School of Midwifery in Orlando, FL.
Serving expectant families is such a blessing. I am a proud mother of 3 amazing adults who are married. We were blessed with our first grandchild nearly 2 years ago. In my downtime, you can find me swimming, hanging out on my SUP, I recently found out that I enjoy surfing (who knew??) and hiking.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! I look forward to meeting you, encouraging you along the way, helping you find your voice in your circumstances, and supporting your growing family in this vulnerable, yet fiercely empowering journey!
I am currently the instructor for the Monday evening BEST Birth classes and also teach private sessions. I am accepting doula clients for 2023.

We took the child birth classes with Jennifer as our instructor at BEST BIRTH Hawaii and it was such an amazing experience! She made us feel so comfortable and full of relief from the first night of class on! Everything that she taught us throughout the six weeks of class was beyond anything that I’ve seen looking into other classes before coming across BEST BIRTH. It was everything I felt I needed the most knowledge on! Jenn was so supportive and has also been such a big help even after I gave birth. If you are looking to learn more about birth and want to feel prepared going into parenthood I 100% recommend their birthing classes and reaching out to BEST BIRTH for their additional services also. -Teja
