"I chose Jennifer to be my doula for my delivery in May. I chose her over other doulas I interviewed because of her down-to-earth, matter-of-fact personality. I felt that I could trust her to ground me in reality and support me through it. I am very glad I chose her! She came to our apartment for two pre-birth visits and went through some great excersizes that really helped me work through some of the fears I had in going through an unmedicated birth. She is also very familiar with GW hospital and the GW midwives and had some fantastic tips for us going there. When I went into labor she was very responsive right away, giving my husband tips via phone to help with back labor. Her suggestions were amazing and really helped me cope. A few hours later we decided to meet at the hospital (my labor progressed quickly). She arrived at the same time we did and she got right to work helping to get baby repositioned (the cause of the back labor). It was great that she became an integrated part of the birth team right away. Her help was invaluable but never intrusive. She told me what I needed to hear when I needed to hear it. She fulfilled the role of doula perfectly! I would highly recommend her and I would love to have her for future deliveries. Overall I had a very positive unmedicated birth experience. And she took great pictures afterwards! And she saved my postpartum life by showing me how to use a ring-sling in our postpartum visit (I got my hands back)! Jennifer is a fantastic doula!!!"
