Take a look below at what’s all included as part of your instruction!

Dr. Jodi was so helpful during my labor, and I am forever thankful to have had her by my side through this process. She helped educate me on the different interventions that the hospital may offer in different situations, and created a birth plan that worked for me. As a first time mom, I went into childbirth blind. I knew that I wanted to have an unmedicated birth, and wanted to avoid an induction at all cost. Thankfully, Jodi helped educate me on the different scenarios because I did end up needing an induction, and I was able to use the knowledge she shared during our prenatal visits to make informed decisions during that induction. She supported me through the induction process, answering any questions I had. Once my contractions got a little more difficult to handle on my own, I called her and she came to the hospital right away. Jodi gave me tips on how to breathe through and handle my contractions, while using positive affirmations to encourage me to keep going. Jodi also kept my husband informed on the different things he could expect from me at all stages of labor, and also different ways he could help me handle the pain of my contractions. She helped to keep me focused on my goal, and I was able to achieve the unmedicated birth I wanted, despite the obstacles thrown my way. More importantly, I felt informed and educated while making decisions. Medical decisions and hospitals can be intimidating, but Dr. Jodi helped make it less so. Thank you for all of your help!

Jodi was an incredible doula and educator as we prepared for the birth of our first baby. Jodi got to know me and my husband while we took her Evidence Based Birth class via zoom and through several in-person meetings. Jodi took the time to get to know us and helped me build out a birth plan based on my preferences – and she was able to help address all the questions I had about childbirth and provide useful guidance about options. Thanks to Jodi I was able to release my fears about birth and I felt prepared, and even excited leading up to the birth of our daughter – and I was able to have the positive unmedicated hospital birth I had hoped for and welcome our first baby with confidence.
