My name is Jennifer Light and I am currently working towards my certification as a Birth Doula with DONA (Doulas of North America).
My first experience providing childbirth support took place in 1995, when a friend asked me to be her birth coach for the delivery of her first child. It was a profound experience to witness this miracle and to see firsthand the incredible strength and fortitude required of the birthing mother.
Flash forward to 2003 and the birth of my own beloved daughter. My childbirth experience was the most empowering of my life. It served as a potent reminder of how extraordinary it is to be fully present in the moments of a new being entering this world.
Now, as the mother of a teenager, I am called more than ever to embark on this new chapter of my life, in the service of women as they welcome their newborn children into their families. All birthing mothers deserve unconditional support as they cross this threshold and I am honored to offer that support in my capacities as a Birth Doula.
