Jen is a DONA International trained birth doula, APPA certified placenta encapsulation specialist and a birth + newborn photographer serving clients delivering in the Baton Rouge area.  She began working as a birth photographer in 2010, and in 2013 was encouraged to take doula certification training.  She fell in love with being able to serve families during this time in their lives! In 2014, Jen added a rebozo certification,  placenta encapsulation services, and private/group childbirth education preparation class to her clients. 

Jen is chipping away at completing her Social Sciences/Sociology/Social Work degree while raising her family and growing her buisness.  

Her future goals include combining her long experience as a doula and her degree to further help families during pregnancy and their transition as parents, biologically or through adoption.

Read more about what doulas can offer on the FAQ page. Jen receives ongoing and continuing education through in-person workshops, seminars, and webinars, and will be adding several certifications within the next year.
