I'm Jenine, the face behind Embrace Birth Services! I’m so glad you’re here.
I am a mama of three tiny humans, and just celebrated my ten year anniversary with my high school sweetheart. I am a self professed lover of music, warmth and comfort foods. I started my doula career with DONA International in 2006 and in 2015, I added birth doula training with MACFE as well. I’ve been attending births for 10 years this summer! This past fall I became Spinning Babies certified, and I am currently completing an intensive course to become a Birth Becomes Her certified birth photographer. Needless to say, I love learning and adding new ways to assist my doula families! In 2017 Embrace Birth Services was officially launched, and I'm so excited to invite you to be a part of this!
As your doula, I am there to support your unique birth plan. I believe birth is more than just a physical experience, it is emotional, spiritual, and in many cases, a transformative experience. These hours will be forever ingrained in your memory- and support of a doula who gets it can be so important in how those moments feel to you days, months and even years later. My support is customized to what you want from your doula to have a positive experience.
I believe the best birth starts with a great support team- one who provides unconditional, unbiased support in the way YOU want it. And I want to be that support for you. Grab a hot drink, a snack, settle in and look around the website and get to know me. When you're ready, send me a message and let’s get together for coffee and chat!
By hiring a Winnipeg Birth Photographer, you are able to capture the tiny details and the big moments, that may otherwise fade from memory. The soft touch of a favorite nurse, reassuring words whispered into your ear, and moments of focus and frustration take stage beside the first looks, a new latch, the meeting of siblings.
A Postpartum Doula provides judgment free assistance with newborn care in the early weeks postpartum. These visits aim to empower you, while also providing a soft space to land in these difficult days when you just need a break. Your doula will address the practical and emotional sides of integrating a new baby into your household.
