Jacqueline is a Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula and Certified Breastfeeding Counselor.
In 1989, as she prepared for the birth of her first child while living overseas, Jacqueline was awed at the amazing design of the human body to give birth naturally. Two of her children were born in a hospital and two at home. Years later, when she was first introduced to the profession of a doula, she knew she wanted to support women during this amazing and important time of birth as well as the postpartum period.
As a Birth Doula, Jacqueline enjoys supporting families and delights in watching and nurturing the growing relationship between parents and their newborn. When women are supported, birth can be both a joyful and empowering experience. This is significant for the joys and challenges that lay ahead in parenting.
As a Postpartum Doula and Certified Breastfeeding Counselor, Jacqueline enjoys helping parents to have the best possible start with their precious little ones. She takes great joy in nurturing families during the postpartum period and seeing parents grow in confidence as they are able to rest and bond with their baby.
