Jenn's journey to becoming a Doula began with the birth of her daughter, Ivy. Her labour and delivery experience and the first few weeks of motherhood opened up her eyes to how valuable it is for expecting families to have a strong, caring support team to help prepare for childbirth and a new baby, both physically and emotionally. A Doula can be incredibly helpful for a growing family, providing important information and advice, and to help them with unexpected bumps or worries along the way.
Jenn is a Certified Birth Doula with DONA International, a Certified Lactation Educator and a Childbirth Educator. She uses this knowledge to support and prepare clients during pregnancy, birth and the early parenting period. Jenn believes that empowering families through education and having that connection through the first weeks and months after having a baby is the best way to provide an experience that everyone feels good about.
Jenn is an active member of our local doula community currently holding the position of Ambassador for Alberta and the Northwest Territories with DONA International and is the current President of the Calgary Doula Association.
When she is not attending a birth, or working with new or expecting parents, she loves to spend time with her family and friends. Jenn is a very proud mom and stepmom to 5 beautiful children. She and her family enjoy traveling, being outside with their Great Dane, Olive and learning new recipes in the kitchen - even when they don't turn out!
She is deeply passionate about supporting women and their families throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond, and has found her true calling in becoming a Doula and Childbirth and Lactation Educator.
