Jenni Werndorf, CD(DONA)
Each birth is uniquely beautiful and deserving of validation and celebration. As a birth doula I have been trained to provide continuous emotional, physical and informational support before, during and immediately after labor to help create a positive and satisfying birth experience. It is my belief that ALL women deserve access to this type of support, regardless of their income level. It is my great privilege to be able to support ALL birthing women, and their partners, during this magnificent journey....

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. After earning a bachelors degree in Gender Studies from USC, I worked with pregnant and parenting teens. Eventually I went back to school to earn a teaching credential and a master's degree in Education. While in graduate school I got married and had two babies (11 months apart) and decided that rather than begin working as a teacher, I would become a full time homemaker/mom. And now that my "babies" are amazing young men who have headed off to college, I have the opportunity to begin a new chapter in my life by supporting other women as they begin an extraordinarily transformative and exciting chapter in theirs!
