Who am I?

 I am a DONA trained Doula in the Central San Diego area. I believe in physiological normal birth and, am passionate about making sure your birth is the one you envision and deserve. I support all types of birth, my goal is that you are educated, empowered, and supported in your most vulnerable and life changing moments. 
In addition to completing the DONA International Birth Doula program, I have also completed the five part Doula Finishing Series with the Birth Education Center, as well as their specialized breastfeeding and VBAC support courses for doulas. I have trained with Nicole Morales of Spinning Babies, and am a part of the volunteer doula program with Operation Doula.

Hey, that's me!

 Hi, I’m JennaRay (she/her)! Not only am I a doula, I'm also a military spouse, california transplant, and mom to a one year old boy!

My husband, Jeff, and ​I have been together since 2012 and love living our best life in San Diego. Our son, Locke, was born on December 31, 2017 using Hypnobirthing techniques at UCSD Jacobs Birth Center.  After my own less than ideal postpartum experience, I am passionate about providing comprehensive support to all the families I serve, and normalizing the struggles that so many of us have.
