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!
