More about Jessica Birth Doula

childbirth educator, birth doula, birth assistant, midwifery student

I am a wife of 20 years to my husband and mother to 6 beautiful children in my arms. We have also experienced loss in pregnancy and know that road too well. I've counseled many women and men through their time of loss, too.

It was our experiences in pregnancy and having natural births that led me to study

childbirth education and become a certified childbirth educator, as well as a birth doula (a support person for women and partners at their births). I've had the privilege of guiding over 300 women and families through their own journeys in pregnancy and birth. I look forward to walking alongside of you and providing the confidence, knowledge and support you need to make your birth your own!

I've been trained as a childbirth educator by the AAHCC and trained as a doula by DONA, the AAHCC, and toLabor. I'm certified by Karen Strange in Neonatal Resuscitation Certification, I've been certified in CPR, and trained by Lactation Education Resources for breastfeeding support. I've earned a bachelor's from Clemson University and take many continuing education classes in the areas of childbirth, doula support, and midwifery to better serve you. I've taken several courses at a MEAC accredited midwifery school to better educate myself for students and clients I serve in the Maryland-Pennsylvania-Virginia area.
