She has experience in attending births in all settings including hospital births, in hospital birthing centers, out of hospital birthing centers, and home births as a birth doula and midwife. Teaching about birth is one of Jenny's biggest passions. She believes in empowering women to birth their babies in a way that they envision. Through teaching classes and attending births, she is working towards shifting the current high intervention birthing culture into a model of family centered, respectful, and gentle care. Jenny believes that it is the birth right of both the mother and baby to have a gentle, loving, respectful birth.
"Jenny taught our childbirth education class and was absolutely amazing. She encouraged and empowered us to make the best possible decisions with our birth plan. Her guidance helped us to have the delivery we had hoped for and I couldn't have given birth naturally without it. I have now had three babies and owe so much to Jenny! I recommend her class to expecting mamas all the time and feel that educating yourself is so key to understanding your body and the changes it goes through during pregnancy and labor."
"If we are to heal the planet, we must begin by healing birthing."
