We are proud to announce the birth of our baby boy, Amber James!
He was born at home after a short and intense labor and both Amber and I are doing great. I will be taking some time off from attending births to bond with Amber but I will be available for placenta and childbirth education services this fall.
I live in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania with my husband and our three children. My life's journey changed direction in 2009,
after the birth of my first son turned out to be not what I had
expected. After a long and eye opening challenge, I was inspired by my
own doula to support families in their birth journey. In 2013 we
welcomed our own VBAC baby. His birth awakened my passion for VBAC
births as well as helping first time parents to feel empowered to avoid a
cesarean birth when possible. This summer we welcomed our third child into our family. His home birth was a fast and intense experience that will forever change the way I view birth.
I am a certified labor doula through Childbirth and Postpartum Professionals Association (CAPPA).
I provide labor doula support, placenta remedies, private childbirth
education, and birthing pool rental services to home, birth center, and
hospital births in the Philadelphia area within an hour of Horsham, PA.
(additional locations on a case by case basis). I am also a
breastfeeding peer counselor with Nursing Mother's Alliance. I was featured in an NBC 10 News story on placenta encapsulation. View the video of this story here. I look forward to working with you and meeting your new addition to your family.
Monday-Wednesday 1-5pm I will be in the office to answer emails, phone calls, etc. I will be available for 7pm in home appointments.
Saturday & Sunday I
will be available for in home appointments on a limited basis. Please
use the form on the "Contact Jennifer" page to schedule an appointment. As always, if you are already a client of JHDS
please call if you need anything.
