Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula
Jennifer Rivera is not only my doula for life she is my best friend. Without her support and guidance, after multiple miscarriages, I doubt I would have had the strength to continue . She was able to give advice and information that my was not offered by my doctors. I was eventually able to maintain a pregnancy that lead to the birth of my beautiful baby boy. My pregnancy was not easy. I was a high risk gestational diabetic of advanced maternal age. Jennifer remained by my side offering help, guidance, support and helpful information. My first attempt at breastfeeding was a challenge. Trying to understand how to get a newborn to latch on when you have barely held a baby was difficult. Once again Jennifer never left my side. I am happy to say that I have been successful with breastfeeding for a year now. Not many people are blessed to be able to do what they love in life. Jennifer is a rare soul that has found her calling. I have never met a more genuine caring person and for that Jennifer will always be my doula for life.
Jen was our doula for the birth of our wonderful baby boy! She was absolutely wonderful. During the pregnancy we did childbirth classes with her to prepare, she helped me write a birth plan, and was there any time I had questions or concerns. She was an incerdibly comforting person to have. Towards the end of my pregnancy she checked in frequently to see how I was doing. When I went into labor she met us at the hospital and was there the entire time helping me breathe, massaging my back, and applying pressure in helpful areas. I could not imagine giving birth without having her there. I had an all natural water birth and to have her there made the difference between me going all natural and me needing pain meds. She provided such a comfort in her presence for both me and my husband. She allowed him to take breaks, helped me to breathe and helped guide my husband on ways he could help me. I cannot recommend a better doula!!!
