Jessie CarpenterAndover, Minnesota About Me
Hello! My Name is Jessie, owner of JLC Birth Services. My personal birth experiences led me to a career as a doula. My first child was born via c-section after a long traumatic induction, where my wishes were not heard. My second born was my first of three VBAC’s (vaginal birth after cesarean.) I had an epidural with him and a subsequent spinal headache. After that experience I told myself that if I had any more babies they would be unmedicated births. With my third born, I had my doula Anna by my side. She was incredible. My daughter was born at 9lbs 12oz, unmedicated. My fourth child was also unmedicated and Anna was there again to help me navigate a very short and sweet labor.
These experiences are what led me to wanting to help other mothers and their loved ones through this incredible journey, in whatever capacity that might mean for them. I became a certified Birth Boot Camp doula in June of 2019. I have also worked part time as a registered nurse for over eight years in postpartum, pediatrics and NICU. My passion is new mothers and their families.
My hope is that with my education and experience I can support families during this incredibly personal time with an unbiased, research based approach.
I look forward to working with you. ~Blessings Doula Services Offered
