Meet Jen. Doula Services and Birth Education.
Birth Wisely, St. Louis, MO.
“She is very supportive of every woman’s right to her personal choices as an expectant mother. I was relieved that classes never felt “preachy,” and steered clear of any personal bias or agenda. Having experienced childbirth now, I realize that there is no “right” or “wrong” way, but there is most certainly and educated and empowered way! Jen gave us the tools we needed to have OUR “perfect” birth story. I’m looking forward to future pregnancies when we can and will take classes with her again. Thank you, Jen!”~ Heather

My Doula Support Philosophy:
A mother and her partner, during the preparation for and process of birth deserve emotional, spiritual, and physical support, choice and respect.
Jen believes that all women and their partners are entitled to choice when it comes to labor and birth. Acquiring knowledge and technique regarding pregnancy, labor and birth is your key to unlocking the world of maternal care, and gaining control of your experience. This course is designed to help you understand and embrace the natural bodily function of birth. Few experiences can be as empowering and rewarding as realizing your body’s full potential to bring life into the world. Using empowering and practical information from her educator training and drawing from her doula background, she is prepared to lead you and your partner to the birth you want. Jen’s course will teach you how to understand the process of labor and birth. It gives you and your coach tools to recognize and cope with labor, guidelines for consumerism, and many other topics surrounding labor, birth, breastfeeding, and parenting. Birth is a magical, wonderful time of life. All babies and their parents are precious and deserve the best care and attention. Jen’s goal is to help you through this time and focus on the ultimate goal of a healthy, positive birth experience.
