​"The prenatal workshop was very helpful, Jen taught us that the process of birth could (and should!) be, something to look forward to, embrace, and even enjoy! We wanted as natural a birth as possible, and by teaching me coping techniques and informing us of the many different choices & alternatives that would allow this to happen safely, Jen made me feel empowered by what my body could do, and therefore feel confident in taking control of the birth of our child."           ~Zoe & Paul

What Clients Are Saying...

 "Jen exceeded all my expectations.  We hired Jen for Prenatal Classes and I am so thankful I was put in touch with her. The knowledge she shared with us is more than I could have imagined.  She gave me the tools and confidence I need to go through with the natural birth I want.  Knowledge is power!"   ~ Lisa W

"I'm so thankful we found Blossoming Birth Services!! We really enjoyed meeting Jen, she's very personable and so full of knowledge! She has great learning techniques whether it be visual demonstrations, partner building, or flash cards. There was always a fun way of teaching us something new.  I really loved how Jen included my husband as much as she did. She took the time to explain his important role in the birthing process and educate him on how he can help me in all stages of labour. Doing this course with Jen has prepared me so much for labour, I feel confident on what I learned and am looking forward to taking all this knowledge to the labour room!  I highly recommend this prenatal workshop!!"  ~Stephanie D​​

"​I recommended to my doctor that he starts telling his patients about Jen at Blossoming Birth Services. I felt and still feel so comfortable with the idea of birth that I can't wait to do it again and complete my family."  ~Samantha B

"Jen demonstrates an ideal balance of professionalism and personal care.  Her calm and warm nature makes her manner endearing and genuine. It is obvious she is passionate about birthing, and wants to share with others her confidence that all women can have their baby's birth be an amazing experience and not one to just make it through!"​  ~Odette P 

​​​"During our Prenatal Workshop, Jen taught me  how to prepare for birth (both physically and emotionally) and she helped us reason with our fears and concerns about labor and about becoming parents. Jen also taught my husband techniques to help support me during labor – which is what we were looking for as first time parents. We learned so much and Jen provided us with the right tips, tricks and tools to have a smooth, natural labor and delivery."    ~Rosie & Loren 

​"We knew we wanted to have a prenatal class so after looking into different ones, we were intrigued to find that we could have a private workshop done at our home. I came across Jen's website and noticed that she offered private prenatal workshops so we booked her for one. It was perfect! She came to our house equipped with all sorts of great information, props and activities. She listened to us and answered all of our MANY questions we had. We highly recommend Jen's workshops!"  ~ Andrea & Ryan

"Jen's Prenatal Workshop was not only educational, it was fun and engaging. She answered all of our questions and addressed our fears in the comfortable setting of our own living room.

Full Bloom Prenatal Workshop Investment & Schedule

Schedule: We will meet for two hours once a week in your home for 4 weeks or meet over two weekend days for a total of 8 hours at dates and times that are most convenient to you. We will also get together for a Postpartum reunion where you can share your birth story with me, introduce your new bundle of joy and ask and parenting/postpartum questions you may have. I recommend that you begin early in your third trimester to be completed 2-6 weeks before your due date (though you are welcome to take it at any time you wish).

Investment for The Full Bloom Prenatal Workshop: $250 and includes all of your materials (handouts and a Guide Book).

*I highly recommend my Doula clients attend a prenatal education course, therefore I offer a Doula package  that includes Birth Doula Services and the Childbirth Preparation Workshop for $900, a savings of $50 off the Workshop.*

"We cannot know the day or week labor will begin, how long it will last, exactly how it will feel, how we will react, or the health and sizes of our babies. What we can do, however, is educate ourselves about the vast array of possibilities and learn which are more likely to occur. We can decide what is ideal and what we will strive for, what are the means to creating the most conducive environment for such a birth and which people can best help us to attain those birth arrangements. Finally, we can prepare our own bodies and hearts for the process."
