LA Tier 2 Birth Doula

"...right to choose is the center of her philosophy"

“…right to choose is the center of her philosophy”

Torrey is a DONA trained birth doula and placenta encapsulator in Long Beach, CA.  She is also a graduate of South Coast Midwifery’s doula internship program. A woman’s right to choose is the center of her philosophy and her goal is to make sure your birth experience is positive with unequivocal support and advocacy; your birth, your body, your way. She believes that being a doula means holding a privileged place in a sacred space and is overwhelmingly grateful to be invited into that place and to be a part of the Carriage House Birth community.

"Jenni looks forward to helping moms feel safe, comforted and heard through their birthing and new mommyhood journey."

“Jenni looks forward to helping moms feel safe, comforted and heard through their birthing and new mommyhood journey.”

Jenni is a birth and postpartum doula who was compelled to become an integral part of the “mommy world” after becoming a mom herself.  As she describes it, “When I became a mommy, I was overcome with emotions.  There were the intense feelings of unconditional love and a commitment to do anything for the sake of my son.  There were the feelings of being overwhelmed at the newness of it all.  And, of course, there was the exhaustion.  I knew that life would change, as every parent that comes before you is quick to warn.  What I didn’t anticipate, and what I could not have contemplated before becoming a mother, was the starkness of the change.  There was no such thing as just me anymore.  And, while I wanted the role of mommy, the intense responsibility of being “mommy” and the inability to shed this role, even for a second, took my breath away.  The mental adjustment to the role of mom was an indescribable feat for me.  And with it came complete adoration for motherhood – for every mother that ever was or would be or wanted to be; for every mom that struggled and loved and cried and tried with everything she had.  I had new eyes for the world.”

 

Jenni’s new eyes led her to Doula Trainings International and its amazing tribe of doulas.  She completed her training with DTI in June of 2015 and is working towards certification.  Jenni lives in Hollywood with her husband, 2-year old son, old man dog and old lady cat.  She’s grateful for her wonderful network of moms that she affectionately calls, “The Mommies” and looks forward to helping moms feel safe, comforted and heard through their birthing and new mommyhood journey.
