    Jessica is calm, thoughtful, and incredibly responsive to individual family needs. While working together providing parenting support and education through a pediatric healthcare organization, I witnessed Jessica’s trauma informed approach as she brings awareness and curiosity to every interaction. As a colleague, she is collaborative and adaptable while keeping the needs of parents and families her first priority. I have witnessed her blend education, support, empowerment, and advocacy to work with parents in a way that leaves them feeling seen, equipped, and more confident.

I'm a mom of 3 whose passion began from her own pregnancies and births. I recognized the lack of genuine support, and became obsessed with all things birth. I followed my calling to be a doula, and am honored to offer holistic, trauma informed support to women. My doula support package includes unlimited prenatal visits, on call birth support, and a postpartum visit. I provide assistance in putting together a birth plan (template provided). Many different handouts, resources, and referrals are made available to all my clients. I am also a home herbalist and enjoy making herbal products for my clients and the community. I offer Blessingway ceremonies as an add-on or stand alone offering. I look forward to chatting with you to see if we're a good fit for your birth!

Care philosophy

I trust in birth as a normal physiological process. Together we explore how this process works, and prepare body, mind and spirit for the transformation of birth (and postpartum). My induvidualized support encourages you to nurture your intuition, and establish your goals and values as your guide for a birth that you can look back on with joy. It is an honor to serve women in this sacred space!

I began my journey in 2015 as a birth doula. I work within my own practice before joining a doula cooperative. Through that experience, I met a variety of other doulas and honed my special skills to support families. I expanded into providing postpartum, VBAC, and lactation support. I am also currently working on becoming a childbirth educator.

Care philosophy

I believe in providing education and supporting your family in finding the options that fit best for you. I use my experience and education to reduce any fears around pregnancy and birth

A postpartum doula in Kenosha, WI is meant to help the entire family and their role is not just limited to the birthing parent and newborn. A doula provides physical and emotional support to parents and siblings, but they also offer information and advice regarding how to feed, bathe, swaddle, and soothe the baby.

They also often help with postpartum depression issues, and are considered child care “consultants” rather than medical professionals. Many postpartum doulas in Kenosha, WI offer a range of services that can help with parents trying to adjust to a newborn child. These services often include:

  • Sibling care
  • Assist with household chores
  • Parent-baby bonding
  • Physical and emotional recovery

A postpartum doula in Kenosha, WI can have a lasting positive impact on a family and help them feel more confident about their parenting role and the way that they feed and nurture their baby. They might offer advice regarding feeding, bathing, and parent-baby bonding.

It is important to note that a postpartum doula might offer advice but is not expected to provide medical care of any kind or serve as a replacement to an accredited physician. Postpartum doulas are also not qualified to prescribe medication.

Many new parents want to know about certified postpartum doulas and how exactly they are certified. Since the demand for postpartum doulas has greatly expanded in the last several years, the number of reputable postpartum doula training and certification programs has grown in Kenosha, WI. Training criteria can differ from program to program, but most follow a similar curriculum which includes core academic curriculum and practical hours and real-life care experience.

One of the most common national postpartum doula training certifications comes from DONA International. A postpartum doula usually receives about 27 hours of practical training before they are a certified postpartum doula.

There are also CAPPA-certified postpartum doulas in Kenosha, WI, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.

As a reminder, because postpartum doulas are not trained to be a medical professional and diagnose and treat medical conditions, a certification is not required for them to practice.

As their names suggest, a birth doula’s main priority is to provide support services before, during and in the moments immediately after childbirth. A postpartum doula’s obligations usually begin after the birth, for several weeks or months. In many cases, your birth doula will also be a trained and certified postpartum doula, which can provide a continuity of care that many parents find extremely valuable.

Many parents want to know whether a postpartum doula or a baby nurse would meet their needs and expectations. A baby nurse might be focused on making sure that a baby sleeps or feeds properly, but that might be the extent of their role. A postpartum doula generally offers more holistic services for their clients.

A postpartum doula in Kenosha, WI is expected to be more involved with the family as a whole. They might remain involved in sibling care or also provide emotional support to the partner as both parents adjust to becoming new parents. This may even include support for older siblings, light housework, and even meal prep. A postpartum doula provides more physical, emotional, and informational support than a baby nurse.

You can hire two types of doulas in Kenosha, WI: a birth doula and a postpartum doula. The birth doula is during your pregnancy and through the birth of your child. They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

A postpartum doula will support you for the first few weeks after the baby is born. They provide in-home assistance, including teaching you how to take care of your newborn, acting as lactation consultant, and can provide some night nanny services.
