Jennifer loves Birthing From Within’s powerful approach to birth as a rite of passage, acknowledging the sacred path to parenthood. She works with folks who know that there really is more to learn about birth and parenthood than just gathering information or creating a birth plan. Jennifer also accepts doula clients on a case-by-case basis.
With nearly 18 years of experience teaching yoga and as an Embodied Yoga Therapist, Jennifer weaves in somatic and mindfulness practices into her classes, workshops and private sessions. She has a lot of experience serving those who may have had previous challenging births or perhaps whose lives have been influenced by trauma or grief of any kind.
As a birth and death companion, Jennifer also does a lot of work with folks who have experienced or are still working through abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth and/or infant loss. She has studied with Stephen Jenkinson in his Orphan Wisdom School and Steven Martyn in his Sacred Gardener School. These teachings have deepened her approach and skills in creating rituals and ceremonies for parents.
Jennifer lives with her partner and three children in Chelsea, Quebec and she is fluent in both French and English. She also tends to bees and makes beeswax candles!
