Welcome to The Red Tent.

For millions of years, women have been attending women in childbirth. Midwives, sisters, aunts and even friends would sit with a mother through her labor, ensuring she had the loving touch and care she needed to deliver her baby with ease.

Modern day life doesn’t allow for these close female connections that we had in the past.

Enter the doula.

As a doula, my job is to support you during your labor to help you have the type of birth you are hoping to have. My job is to provide information in those times when labor or birth doesn’t take the path you’d thought it would. My life’s work is helping women feel attended to and cared for during their labor and birth experience. My role is non-medical in nature; I offer information and support for women in the Oshawa, Ontario Canada.

About

Hello, and welcome to Red Tent Doula Services!

I’m Jen, a labour and birth doula in Oshawa, Ontario. I took my training early in 2016, and am working steadily towards my certification.

I am so excited to finally be on the path of being a doula. For years I have read everything I could get my hands on about birth, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. I first learned about doulas a few years after I had my daughter. My daughter’s birth was very traumatic, and it took a lot of time and self-work to come to peace with it. When I learned about doulas, I immediately knew that if I ever had another baby, I would have a doula by my side.

When my son came along almost 9 years later, I had my husband, and my doula, by my side for an amazing birth. Shortly after the birth of my son, I think the idea was planted that I should be doing what my doula was doing for others. I had been reading about it for years!

I spent a few years thinking about it, and with the support of my husband, I am on this journey and I can not wait to see where it brings me next!

Half of this fee is due when the contract is first signed. This ensures your birthing time is blocked off and that I do not book clients within that time frame.
