Certified Birth Doula (DONA)
Hi! My name is Jacinda! I am a massage therapist (which comes in handy during labor), a licensed esthetician, a mother and a foster mother to little ones, and now a birth doula! Ever since I was very young, I have been amazed at the miracle of pregnancy and childbirth. At age 13, I witnessed my first birth. After that day, I knew that I wanted wanted to do something involving babies and pregnant Mamas. A few years ago, when I was pregnant with my son, I began to research natural childbirth and came to the conclusion that I needed a doula to assist me and my husband. My husband and I were both amazed at the help she provided and how everything went so well with her assistance. I was convinced that if I had not had her with me, my experience would not have turned out as wonderful as it did. Having the desire to help women have a positive experience as I did along with my love for birth, led me to pursue my career as a doula.
I began attending births at the beginning of 2014 and over the summer received my formal education through a DONA International certified course. I have thoroughly enjoyed helping women and their families during this important and special time in their lives, and I look forward to sharing your pregnancy and childbirth with you!
