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. 

I am so grateful that Jenni was our doula and highly recommend her! As prepared as we were and as highly supportive as my husband was, I found Jenni’s role in our birth to be critical to us having a positive birth experience. She was professional, knowledgeable, supportive, and most of all: knew what to do and what to say when I needed it! Leading up to the birth, Jenni had plenty of useful advice and resources to share.

“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!”
