Mindful Birth Doula

A doula is a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth. Research has shown that when doulas attend a birth, there are fewer complications, labors are shorter, and babies breastfeed more easily. Jennifer infuses her work with relaxation techniques she has learned through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, and skillfully teaches breathing techniques, guides clients through meditations, mindfulness techniques, guided imagery, and aromatherapy. In addition, Jennifer will help guide your partner and teach him/her how to support you during your labor.
