Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator
Jennifer moved to Fort McMurray in 2005 from Newfoundland and quickly fell in love with the region. She is very passionate about supporting women during and after pregnancy, especially when so many of them are far away from their families. Jennifer volunteers with a few organizations, including the Baby Friendly Initiative and Wood Buffalo Women & Baby Care Association, both of which are focused on supporting women and their families. Her interest in pregnancy and birth goes back to her childhood when she badgered a neighbour for the last 6 months of her pregnancy! Jennifer has been a doula since 2011 and is always reading new studies so she is up to date on the latest research based recommendations. She believes that mothers, along with their support person, need to be educated on what is available to them during pregnancy and labour, so they can make informed decisions and have their best birth. Jennifer is the mother of two children, who sometimes get bored when she is telling them about the latest research!
