As a Childbirth Educator, Birth and Postpartum Doula, my goals are to empower Mothers and Fathers to make the right decisions for themselves and their families, by providing up to date and accurate information to their specific needs. I hope this encouragement will bring growth, confidence and enjoyment, and I strive to be a creator of space, a physical support person, and an emotional rock for parents during this life changing period. I hope to be able to help make each woman's birth a positive and fulfilling experience to remember, and an incredible story to tell, because each Mother only deserve the best, and because more positive birth stories NEED to happen, and be told!

Hello Lovely Mama,
My name is Deena Devora Jacob, and I hope you will call me your BirthBuddy.
Your Birth doesn’t need to be something you fear. Your body was made with the incredible ability to CREATE and BIRTH a human being; as well as provide for his or her needs afterward. There are fabulous tools to be learnt for relaxation, and unbelievable research done on the effect deep relaxation has on a labor. Most of all though, studies have shown that women with constant support by their sides, labor for shorter, are more easily able to handle pain, are less likely to use epidurals, and are less likely to end up with cesarean sections. Your Partner, friend, or family member can play an incredible roll in early labor as well as in the birth room, but not every Partner or person is made for the emotional stress and pressure of labor and birth. There is nothing like the constant support of a woman in the throws of active labor, or in the aftermath of a beautiful birth. I aim to be the one you call on, and hope you will let me be a part of this lovely spiritual experience in your lives.
