A message from Jenny:
My journey into pregnancy and childbirth began when I was 15 watching my mother labor and give birth. It was her strength and determination that inspired me when I became pregnant for the first time. When my husband and I found out we were pregnant we decided to follow the advice of other friends and family to take a childbirth class that gave us the tools we needed to have a safe and healthy birth. After the birth of our son I decided to become a childbirth educator and taught a brand of childbirth classes for 6 years. During this time we gave birth two more times, both girls. Because I had been healthy and considered low risk we chose to have homebirths with a CPM. In 2009 I became a labor doula through CAPPA and in 2011 a childbirth educator also through CAPPA.
It is a privilege to work with families during the exciting time of pregnancy, labor and birth. I love teaching women more about how their bodies work and build confidence in their ability to labor and birth. I truly believe that when a mother has the education, support and confidence she needs that she will truly have a positive experience. I believe this confidence will help her in the years to come as she navigates the world of parenting and beyond. I am very excited to be teaching Kopa Birth classes. ~ Jenny
