Jennifer’s initial inspiration to work in childbirth was imparted by a dear family friend who was an amazing labor and delivery nurse. Jennifer has worked with children for over 10 years as a nanny and, during that time, she married and started a family of her own with two wonderful children. While pregnant and learning as much as she could to prepare herself for birth, Jennifer’s interest in childbirth was reignited and she realized her calling was to help other women. She attended the births of countless friends and family members who recognized her intuitive ability to provide support. Now, after fulfilling a longtime dream of helping another family by being their surrogate, Jennifer decided it was time to begin working on her next dream by completing her labor doula training.
Anne was born and raised in Alberta, Canada and moved to Columbia four years ago, when she married her husband Charlie. Together they have two little boys. Anne has always loved traveling and volunteering internationally, listening to women share their birth stories. Anne’s passion and interest for birth started over ten years ago as her sister prepared to have her first born. Fast forward to her own experience with her first and having a doula present, she became more fully aware of the importance of having options and being empowered. Empowerment is what Anne would have for all her clients no matter the type of birth they desire. Anne believes this is a transformative experience for you and your partner and can’t wait to assist you on your journey as parents. Anne is currently in training to become a childbirth educator and hopes once certified to start teaching classes in the new year.
Kelly has always had a love for caregiving, motherhood, and family. Her calling to birth work specifically began during her pregnancy with her first child, Rosemary, whose life and miscarriage was profoundly transformative for her and gave her a passion for birth and maternal health. Ever since she has been gathering all of the wisdom she can through reading, classes and most importantly the stories and experiences of her fellow mothers! She believes that the childbearing year is a such miraculous and critical time, and it is her privilege to accompany women through their unique journeys. She desires to see every woman (and the entire family through her) nurtured and empowered toward wholeness with the help of skilled and loving companionship.
Prior to beginning her work as a doula, Kelly earned a bachelor's degree in English with a minor in Community Development, and went on to study permaculture design. Most of all, she loves her husband, Steven, and their little girl, Juniper!
