I had a wonderful birth experience with Jenny West with Every woman Doulas. I contacted Jenny early in my pregnancy as I wanted to have my baby boy drug free and knew I would need an excellent support team to accomplish this goal. Jenny came to our home for our first meeting and I immediately felt a comfortable connection with her. We met again several times as my pregnancy progressed to discuss and plan for a continued healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery. She made certain I was educated regarding all my
options and was familiar with the usual labor and delivery process as well as the most common complications so that we could avoid as many surprises as possible. I was almost induced a week before I actually began labor in earnest and Jenny provided significant reassurance while my little man took his time deciding when to arrive. Throughout my pregnancy she was always immediately accessible by phone and email. When the day finally came she coached me,
provided reassurance and assessment over the phone until I felt I needed her in person. Once she arrived at our home she was a constant pillar of strength for not only me but my husband and mother who were assisting with my labor. I labored actively for about 34 hours with back labor before my baby came, obviously we hadn’t expected such a long process but with Jenny’s assistance and
guidance we were all able to endure. She recommended and assisted me with multiple methods of pain management that did not include medication. I delivered a healthy baby boy drug free with APGARS of 9 and 9 and no complications. Without the support and guidance of my Doula I do not believe my team and I would have been able to endure the marathon of my labor and delivery. In the greater Pensacola area it was difficult to find a medical team that supported my wishes or a drug free delivery with minimal interventions. Jenny not only assisted me in finding supportive providers but also provided significant reassurance that even if we would need interventions they would be necessary and minimal. This was of utmost importance to me as believe the woman’s body is not only fully capable of delivering without interventions but is designed to do so. Jenny completely shares this belief and was essential in assisting us with the delivery that we so wanted to have. Thank you, Jenny!!

I had an excellent experience with my doula Jenny West. She was very kind, understanding and caring whenever I had any concerns or problems during my pregnancy. It did not matter what I was going through or when I was going through it, she was always available for me to talk to I feel that Jenny is very reliable and knows alot about giving birth. She was always encouraging me to believe that I would get through all the troubles I had during my pregnancy and while I was giving birth. I also felt that she would encourage me whenever I felt that something was going wrong during my pregnancy and that means alot to me because I know that most people would have feed into any fears I had. I would recommend her to anyone and I already have some people in mind.

Jenny was the doula that assisted with my brith. She was amazing. My water had broke in the morning and she promptly came over and helped me labor at home. She had a wide variety of techniques to relieve pain/anxiety. She was supportive and assertive in helping me carry out the birth plan that my husband and I wanted. I know my husband benefited from her as well, as she was very supportive of him as well. I would highly recomend Jenny and if I was staying in the area I would use her for future births as well.

Having Jenny as our doula made our birth a wonderful experience! When unexpected issues arose she stayed calm and confident while helping through each hour. My husband and I were very impressed with her knowledge on all things childbirth. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and her services to expecting families!
