Jennifer Kula, Doula
Birth is a transformative, natural, and normal process that our bodies are designed for. Pregnancy and birth call women to become mindful of their changing body, their sweet baby, and their intuition.
As a birth doula, I provide informational, emotional, and physical support for birthing families during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I connect families with evidence-based resources so they can ask important questions and make informed decisions about their births.

Birth Doula Support in WNY

As part of my birth doula services, I provide individualized childbirth education to support you in the process of writing your birth plan. We work together to prepare for birth and postpartum and I provide informational support through that process. My goal is to offer evidence-based information about birth to support you as you make choices for your family.
During labor and birth, I provide continuous support to the birthing person and their partner. Also, I assist with the sweet bonding time after your baby is born, providing support with breastfeeding and postpartum comfort.

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

“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!”
