About Me

My name is Jasmine and I recently moved to New Jersey with my husband. We have been married for four years and are blessed with two beautiful boys. It was through their births that I began to discover the true beauty in birth and the need for more support for new and expectant parents. I am incredibly excited to start this new chapter of my life here in New Jersey, where I hope to provide holistic support and guidance to expectant parents during their childbirth experiences. I LOVE my job and I feel so grateful to be able to help people through such a transformative time. I cannot wait to continue my journey as a birth professional and make a positive impact on the lives of families in this community 🌿🤍

Welcome!

I'm so glad you’re here! Birth is one of the most powerful, beautiful, and sacred moments in a person’s life, and I am here to help guide you through it.

What is a doula?

Why hire a doula?

What should you expect?

A doula is a physical, emotional, and informational support person during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Studies have shown that continuous support during labor can be effective in producing more favorable birth outcomes.

  • 10% decreased need for pain medication

  • 31% decrease in unsatisfactory birth experience

  • Higher likelihood of spontaneous vaginal birth

  • Shorter labors by an average of 41 minutes

  • 25% decreased risk of c-section

  • 38% decrease in baby’s risk of a low APGAR score

Having a doula during the postpartum period can provide support for parents while they navigate life with their new baby.

Before you choose to hire me as your doula, we will meet for a free consultation to decide if I would make a good addition to your birth team. If you choose to hire me, you can expect prenatal appointments and continuous support during labor. After you give birth, I will continue to provide support for up to two hours. We can set up a time during your first two weeks postpartum for me to make one postpartum visit for up to two hours. Additional postpartum visits can be arranged.

I will be on call from 37 weeks of pregnancy until you give birth. During labor, I will be there to provide continuous physical and emotional support for you and your partner. Some labor coping techniques include massage, aromatherapy, acupressure, position changes, and hydrotherapy.

After labor, I will continue to support you as needed for up to 2 hours. We will arrange for one postpartum home visit within the first two weeks following birth. Additional postpartum visits can be arranged.

Daytime Support

Overnight Support

As your postpartum doula, I am here to provide you with the support you need in the comfort of your own home. You have the flexibility to schedule my visits based on your preference. Whether you require assistance during the day or overnight, I am available to accommodate your needs. For daytime support, I offer shifts that range from 4 to 8 hours, allowing me to assist you with various tasks and provide guidance as you navigate through the postpartum period. If you require additional support during the night, I also offer overnight shifts that span from 8 to 10 hours. My goal is to ensure that you feel supported and empowered during this transitional time, so please don't hesitate to reach out and schedule a time for me to come and provide you with the care and assistance you need.

My duties as your postpartum doula include:

  • Light housework

  • Emotional & physical support through recovery

  • Informational support on recovery from childbirth, infant soothing, and coping skills.

  • Assistance with newborn care to allow parents to rest, shower, etc.

  • Basic lactation support (referrals may be given for support beyond my scope of practice)

  • Light meal prep

  • Running errands

  • Sibling support

The ways in which I can assist you may vary from person to person. I am here to cater to your specific needs.
