I could not have gotten thru my 29hr unmedicated birth without the guidance and TLC that Jennifer offered me. To say she's amazing is an understatement. Not only did I benefit immensely from her services but my husband did as well. He remained calm and comforted throughout our labor and delivery experience thanks for our awesome doula. Everyone should labor with Jennifer!!
"I just want to say THANK YOU so much for the Reiki session on Friday! I felt really great the rest of the day and all weekend. I had a big "to do list" and tackled everything on it over the weekend. I haven't felt this energized in a while! I wish I could do Reiki more often!"
"Child birth is a very emotional, joyful and hormonal situation. When I first found out I was pregnant, my partner was very supportive and seemed to be in lock-step with the process. However, when we reached the 7 month mark, the process became too much to bear and I was left with the concerns of labor alone. I began doing research and decided to hire a doula. I interviewed 5 doulas prior to hiring Jennifer. From the start Jennifer showed support & concern for my current situation. She provided very supportive advice during the interview process; I knew she was the doula for me.
Jennifer has extensive knowledge of natural/alternative procedures which was a plus for me! I was able to call her at any time with questions and concerns I had and if she couldn't answer my question then (this didn't happen often) she would get the info for me within 24 hours.
During labor, which occurred at 1 a.m., Jennifer helped me time my contractions, called my doctor and met me at the hospital to walk me through the process and kept me informed of my progress. She was extremely encouraging and cheered me on as I went through the laboring process. I could not have delivered without her! She applied pressure points to my back during contractions and that alone is a reason I will hire her again (back labor is extremely painful).
When I made decisions that were outside of my birth plan, she didn't skip a beat! She supported my decisions and her level of support never changed. Now that my bundle of joy is here, Jennifer's support has not stopped. She has given me postpartum support and provided encouragement during my breastfeeding complications.
Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable & very supportive. She builds a friendship which makes her customer service one of a kind and priceless. I am very pleased with the service & friendship she provided. If I decide to have another child, I will definitely hire her again!"
"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 was not offered by my doctors. I was eventually able to maintain a pregnancy that led 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 reason, Jennifer will always be my doula for life!"
