I offer my private clients TWO prenatal visits which include a 45min-1 hour yoga class (private), guided meditation, builiding of a birth plan, general discussions about what to expect in an attempt to have questions and/or concerns addressed before the birth. I will also be on call two weeks before and after the guess date, present at the birth and available for 1-2 postpartum visits. All of my clients have access to my lending library and to me even after babies are born. My goal is to offer birthing people and their teams support in whatever capacity they deem necessary form me. I want them to feel supported and empowered to make the best choices for their family but providing evidence based knowledge and tried and true techniques. I love to help parteners feel involved if they so desire.

My practice as a doula is based around EMPOWERMENT.

I want mommas to walk away feeling as powerful as I witness them to be. My services include TWO prenatal visits, unlimited support at your birth & ONE postpartum visit. Additionally, I remain "on-call" 24/7 via text/phone/email from the time of hire until our postpartum visit.

{Birth Doula}

Website: JennaRay Rufin, Birth Doula

Email: jennaraydoulayay@gmail.com

JennaRay is a DONA-trained Birth Doula, currently working towards her certification. Her role as a doula is to provide physical, emotional and educational support throughout the labor and birthing process. She has completed the Birth Education Center Professional Doula Series, including VBAC for Doulas and Breastfeeding for Doulas. She has observed HypnoBirthing childbirth education and plans to complete Rebozo Certification later this year.

JennaRay became intrigued by the birth process when a close friend introduced her to HypnoBirthing in 2014. During her own pregnancy, it was a no brainer to seek a HypnoBirthing education class. JennaRay was diagnosed with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in pregnancy which carried over into the  postpartum period. She became passionate about the importance of maternal mental health and the concept of ‘mothering the mother’ after birth in order to minimize and normalize mental health challenges facing pregnant and postpartum families. She is passionate about childbirth education and informed decision making. She truly enjoys guiding families on their journey to a more educated, empowered, and ecstatic birthing experience.

I am excited to join you on this magical and empowering journey through birth because every family deserves love and compassionate support into parenthood.

Our first meeting is free and a good way for us to get to know each other. I provide two prenatal appointments. During the first appointment, you and I can talk about your birth history, birth plan, concerns, and answer questions. You will have text, phone, and e-mail support from then on. During the second appointment, I will go over comfort measures that you and your partner can practice during early labor. At 38 weeks, I will be on-call for your birth. You can reach me by phone for 24/7 support. Once in labor, I will come when you are ready for me and support you in whatever way you need, while using comfort measures. After Baby’s birth, I offer two hours of continued support to assist with feeding and bonding. At your postpartum appointment, we will talk about your feelings in processing your baby’s birth, breastfeeding support, and any other support your family needs. My fee for this package is $550. I accept cash, check, and Venmo.
