...Jeni's approach during our home birth was incredibly grounding. She was extremely present with me without being overbearing in the slightest. She knew exactly what to suggest, gently say, or touch to offer me comfort and/or progress at each turn...
JB, Pawling, NY
"Preparing for labor and going through labor is not something we are meant to do alone. Jeni helped me feel prepared and once labor began she brought me and my husband so much comfort."
JO, Sandy Hook, CT
"Jeni was a practical, emotional, and spiritual lifesaver when our plans for childbirth changed unexpectedly!...Jeni was absolutely essential in minimizing and managing the trauma of an unexpected medicalized birth..."
SH, Newburgh NY
"Working with Jeni was one of the most important decisions my partner and I made during the pregnancy. She was so educated on childbirth, breastfeeding, and infant care, and delivered the info to us warmly in a private session."
AK, Garrison NY
"When searching for a doula, it was important for me to find someone who was practical and who aligned with our preference for a medication free birth. One of Jeni’s biggest assets is that she meets couples where they are, and doesn’t judge."
