My name: Jennifer Saleheen My age: 34 Location: Huntington Beach, CA
Why I Became a Doula: I became a doula because I wanted to be a midwife. I chose a midwifery career path because I have a passion for herbs, fertility, and natural birth. And then I fell in love with being a doula. I love watching women discover the power within themselves as they transform and become more confident in their bodies. It's incredible for me to be able to mother each of these beautiful women as they enter motherhood themselves. The moment the new parents cradle the soul they created together, the love that is written in the expression of their faces is a snapshot forever imprinted in my mind. I love being able to help create lasting and beautiful memories that the birth couple can cherish forever. Someday I'll be a midwife, but today I just love being a doula.
My Goals as a Doula
I want women to know that birth can be an empowering time filled with beautiful moments.
I want couples to make informed choices based on their goals for their childbirth.
I want women to feel safe and protected so that they can give birth relaxed and without worry.
Change the World
I want to encourage women to bring out and connect with the amazing, beautiful, confident, fearless, and powerful mother that is within us all.
