If you know a soon-to-be-mom, you need to introduce her to Jen Graham.
Jen is a certified birth and postpartum doula and Evidence Based Birth instructor working throughout San Diego County. She lives here in San Elijo Hills with her husband of 20+ years, their four children and three dogs.
Jen started her doula work in 1996, shortly after her oldest son was born. She felt very uninformed about her birth options and unequipped with the tools needed to copy with labor – which sparked a quest that lead to her 20 year career as a doula.
Today, Jen specializes in unmedicated childbirth, but attends all types of births. She has experience with VBACs, hospital birth, home birth, birth center birth, family centered cesarean section, surrogacy, adoption, teens, single parents, LGBTQ and more. She also has postpartum experience with singletons, twins, triplets, special needs, sleep problems and breastfeeding issues.
There are so many benefits to having a doula – helping a new mother eliminate any unnecessary stress before, during and after birth. Jen has been present for hundreds of births and having her by your side every step along the way is not only reassuring, but also often leads to benefits such as less medications, decreased odds of c-section, a better overall experience during labor and a peaceful beginning as a family.
