About me

Certified Holistic Health Coach, doTERRA essential oils educator, and DONA Certified Birth Doula, Jessica's passion for health & wellness flows from her heart into everything she does. Jessica's own struggles with wellness and infertility are the reason that she is so passionate about helping others. She knows the frustration and helplessness of less-than-optimal health and how overwhelming it can be to find the answers you're looking for. She also knows the sacredness and importance of birth and how meaningful it is to have as positive an experience as possible when bringing new life into the world. Jessica ensures that you will feel heard, cared for, and valued as an individual. Each person is different and that's one of the things she loves most about her job - each day is a new adventure! Jessica’s philosophy for birth is that every single one is unique and sacred. It is her job to mother you and give you the space and support to birth your baby in whatever way you need. There is no single correct method, each birth is special and each birthing woman has options. She makes sure you know what those options are and have the support you need to make the best decisions for you and baby.

Service introduction

As your birth doula, I will provide emotional support and physical comfort to ensure a positive birth experience. I am a non-clinical provider who will draw upon my knowledge and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and communication with your health care provider to ensure you have the information needed to make informed decisions in labor. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort. I will support you to my fullest in facilitating the kind of birth you have envisioned for yourself and your family. I will follow the standards of practice, and code of ethics by DONA International.
