I’m Jocelyn

I get it—being in labor comes with ​a whole world of feelings, from joy ​to stress. You don't have to ​navigate this journey alone. I'm ​here to offer you balance, comfort, ​and the support you deserve.

My Journey to Becoming a Doula:

"I was drawn to becoming a birth doula because I saw ​firsthand the difference that informed, loving support can ​make. Having gone through my own birth trauma, I realized ​that a little help goes a long way during this tender phase."

Experience and Credentials:

"I bring 4 years of heartfelt service to my role as your birth ​doula. I am certified in labor and birth support as well as ​breastfeeding education and have attended numerous births ​and lactation consolations. My experience has taught me ​how to effectively support clients so they can truly enjoy this ​special chapter."

What Sets Me Apart:

"What sets me apart is my commitment to you. You're not ​just another client; you who deserve to feel confident, heard, ​and to be cared for. I tailor my support to your unique needs, ​whether it's helping you through pregnancy, childbirth, ​and/or with breastfeeding."

What I Believe:

"I don't just focus on having a healthy baby; I take a holistic ​approach that includes nurturing you. Childbirth requires a ​supportive birth team, and I aim to be a valuable part of ​yours."

My Approach:

Personalized Support:

"Your story is unique, and so are your needs. Whether this is ​your first baby or you’re adding another bundle of joy to your ​family, I adapt my support to fit your situation."

Knowledgeable Care:

"I don't just go by the book; I stay updated on the latest ​evidence-based practices in labor and lactation care. I bring ​you tried and true methods that work."


"Life doesn't operate on a 9 to 5 schedule, especially with a ​new baby joining the world. That’s why I offer labor support ​during the daytime, nighttime, and even on the weekends.”

A Calming Presence

“Jocelyn was such a calming presence while my husband and I were navigating the birth of our first child. ​She took the time to understand what my hopes and expectations were, and provided support in the ​hospital accordingly. When the doctors offered options, Jocelyn was able to translate the medical language ​and provide insight on how it fit my desires without adding pressure in either direction. I felt in control of an ​otherwise overwhelming experience, and we are so grateful that we were able to have her there.”
