Jacquie has over 30 years of diverse experiences with children and families as a respiratory therapist at Boston Children's Hospital, as a founder and coordinator of an after school program, as a provider of childcare, and being a full time mom to her own four children, and now as a DONA trained postpartum doula and a certified lactation counselor.
Her postpartum doula services are comprised of a variety of emotional, physical, and practical support measures that she draws from to meet the needs of your individual family. Her role is to nurture a new mom through the recovery of birth as well as to support partners through the transition period of adding a new baby to their lives.
Jacquie helps new moms to fill their toolboxes with evidence based information, resources, some humor, and positive nurturing to meet each mom's own specific needs. She has been referred to as "a breath of fresh air" whether she is supporting a family during the day or at night. She is aware that a family's needs will change day to day. Jacquie also knows that sleep deprivation during the early postpartum period can have serious complications. Knowing that a caring doula is with your baby all night will allow you a solid nights sleep which will nurture confident healthy parents.
