Senior Doula, Childbirth Educator and Lactation Counselor
Certified Labor and Birth Doula, Certified Childbirth Educator, Certified 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.
I have nothing but great things to say about Jenn’s doula services! She was extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and reliable. She took her time to get to know and understand my husband and me. She replaced whatever fear I had of childbirth with confidence and encouragement. From the first day I met her, she was fully committed. Day or night I could always rely on her to answer my call. She helped me through my extremely challenging birth during COVID, when my husband was not permitted to attend. She was by my side the entire time supporting me through labor, delivery, and breastfeeding. We will be sure to hire Jenn for any future children we are blessed with." Aly N.
