Meet the Doulas

Jenne Paddock, LCCE, CD(DONA)

My journey to becoming a doula really began in 2008 with my first pregnancy, which ended in an early miscarriage. The sacred, beautiful, powerful, poignant world of birth was opened to me then and my interest and love of all things birth grew stronger through the years that passed. In that time I have brought my own 4 children into the world, and began supporting other women in their birth journeys in 2013. I completed both my DONA and Lamaze certifications in 2019, and am honored to continue learning, teaching and supporting birth.


As a doula my style is intuitive, calm and gentle. I usually know when to offer a suggestion, a piece of information or a comforting touch. . . and also when to be still and simply witness the beauty and power of a woman in labor. I have a deep respect and reverence for birth and I am a true believer in a woman's sovereignty and autonomy to give birth in whatever way SHE feels is best.

As a birth doula, I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience.  I draw on my professional training, knowledge and experience as a doula and mother to provide continuous emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with other members of your birth team to make sure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor.  I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort.  


I have been working with pregnant and birthing women since 2002.  I have six children of my own whose births have inspired me to help other women have satisfying birth experiences.  I became a certified birth doula through DONA International in 2009.  I have also been trained in Lamaze’s 6 Healthy Birth Practices which help simplify the birth process with an informed approach that helps alleviate fears and manage pain.
