serving Central San Diego and beyond.
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.
"A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible."

After the interview process is complete and we have gone under contract together, we will have two or three meetings. At this time we will discuss options and goals for your birth. We can use this time to visualize your birth and answer any questions you have whether it be pregnancy, birth, or newborn related. I'll also be available for call and text support after this time and can have additional meetings if the need arises.
*This is a non refundable payment which is due at contract signing.
I'll provide informational support, help facilitate communication between you and your healthcare team, hold space for you to ask questions and make informed decisions. I can also provide any hands on comfort measures you wish and positive support through early labor, active labor, and one to two hours post birth.
*Payment due at 36 weeks to ensure I'll be on call for your birth.
We will set up a visit 24-72 hours postpartum to answer any questions you may have, offer feeding support and resources, and see that you are on the road to recovery and settling in with your new addition.
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.
