Birth is a normal and transformative process that our bodies are designed for. Pregnancy and birth call us to become mindful of our body, our intuition, and our growing baby. Mindful Mama provides doula services in Western New York, including Buffalo and Rochester. 
I provide informational, emotional, and physical support for birthing and postpartum families. I connect families with evidence-based resources so they can ask important questions and make informed decisions about their births.

Birth Doula Services in Western New York

We work together to prepare for birth and postpartum. My goal is to offer evidence-based information about birth to support you as you make choices for your family. I provide on-call, continuous support for labor, birth, and postpartum. I support birthing families in hospitals, birthing centers, and home births. 

Postpartum Doula Services in Western New York

Postpartum doulas provide support for families after the birth of their baby. I support the transition from pregnancy, through birth, and into parenthood. I provide services in your home as you recover physically and emotionally from this transition. 

Why do I need a birth doula? 

Women who use a birth doula are:

  • 31% less likely to need Pitocin to speed up labor
  • 28% less likely to have a cesarean birth
  • 12% more likely to have a spontaneous vaginal birth
  • 9% less likely to require pain medication
  • 14% less likely to have a newborn transferred to a special care nursery
  • 34% less likely to feel dissatisfied with their birthing experience

Mindful Mama is proud to support ALL birthing families, regardless of background or family structure. I offer payment plans for families experiencing economic hardship to provide access to birth and postpartum support. 

“Jenni was my doula and she was terrific! She was my rock. She was everything I needed her to be. She was patient, kind, thoughtful, prepared, knowledgeable, and helpful. I labored 20 hours. She drove 45 minutes to my home about 2:00 am. She stayed by my side until 9:00 pm the next day. I remember her helping me in ways that my husband couldn’t do. My husband was prepared, as we studied the Bradley Method, but Jenni’s intuitions allowed her to completely tune into what I needed. I cannot recommend her enough, she was an essential member of my birth team. It would not had been so incredible without her. Thank you Jenni!”
