You may call me Jessi and I’ve been a DONA-trained Birth Doula since 2011. As your doula, I am especially focused on easing your pain and lending you comfort, helping you get all the information you want or need along the way, and encouraging your partner to massage, assist, ask questions, and do everything he or she can to make you more comfortable and courageous throughout your birth experience.
Every birth is unique and amazing and being invited to join in the journey is one of my greatest joys. I can’t wait to hear about all of your dreams, hopes, and fears about your upcoming birth. I understand that choosing a doula is a very personal consideration, which is why most of us offer a free consultation as an opportunity to test out our compatibility with each other. I am no different. Please contact me for an opportunity to get to know me, and I you, and decide whether we might be a good match. I want nothing more than for you to experience the euphoria and strength and joy that comes from experiencing an empowered labor.
In addition to being a doula, I’m a wife and mother of two, gardener, writer, and dreamer, as well as holding a degree in geology. I have experience with couples, families, and single mothers, both medicated and unmedicated births, emergency post-birth scenarios, and postpartum depression. So far all of my clients have delivered in the hospital but my talents are just as applicable in a home birth or birth center if that’s what you’re hoping for.
