My name is Jeanna (pronounced "g-nuh") and I am so glad you're here!
Helping moms like you by taking out some of the overwhelm in your motherhood journey is what gets me up in the morning.
All About Me
After having my first child with incredible hands-on help and encouragement of my own doula, best friend, & my husband in 2016, I felt a tug in my heart to pursue training to help other women try to achieve beautiful and empowering births as well. After spending many years studying and working within the fields of interior and graphic design, I began looking into other career paths that would allow me to use my gifts to serve others, with the goal to help women and families in our community more readily access comprehensive, diverse, and affordable resources and support from pregnancy through post-partum.
After completing my training with DONA in 2017 while 12 weeks pregnant with my second child, I started BDBDS with the belief that childbirth is an opportunity for mothers to discover and use their innate strengths and abilities to achieve the best and most positive birth possible, as they define it, and carry that confidence into parenthood. But it wasn't until my son was a few months old that I realized that this would not be a hobby, but rather my newfound career. It is an honor to serve as both a birth doula and birth photographer to such incredible individuals and families in our community, and now, serve mothers virtually all over the world.
My hope is to raise awareness for birthing disparities and make education & support as accessible as possible to moms everywhere. Every birth deserves to be honored, and every mother deserves to be supported throughout her entire journey. It does take a village, and I am honored to be chosen to walk alongside so many incredible women and hold space for them in these transformative seasons.
I'd be honored to have the opportunity to get to know you and hear more about your birth goals and wishes. Contact me for your free consultation. I'd love to see if we're a good fit!
