I am Jen and I live in the north Chicago suburbs. I am a mama of 3 boys (1 cesarean birth and 2 home VBACS). 15 years ago I met a doula for the first time. She was the mom of the kids I was nannying at the time. Before that I had never heard of a doula or the term “birthworker.” When I had my first baby, I hired a doula and I am so grateful I did! She was so supportive before, during and after my birth. She helped me process the birth during the first few weeks of healing and it made the world of difference. For my second and third births, I hired a midwife/doula and I asked my best friend and sister in law to attend as well. Having a team of amazing women support me during labor is the way I love bringing my babies earth side! These empowering experiences have led me to become a doula myself. I am excited and honored to serve mamas so they can feel supported and become more informed in their pregnancy birth journeys!
