Doula Trainer


This training went above and beyond my expectations! Jesse was an absolutely amazing teacher. she took time for my questions and comments. She explained everything so well and made sure we understood at the end. I received a wealth of knowledge. I felt like a friend not a student. This was more than doula training, this was personal growth for myself as a woman.
— EJ, Doula trainee 2015
I want to thank you so deeply for the experience you lent to us all this weekend. It was empowering, inspiring and I feel thoroughly propelled into my truest passion! Endless thanks to you.
— Sofia W, Doula Trainee

Advocate


Jesse has been an incredible advocate and ally for doulas in Oregon over the past decade.  As a trainer, mentor and business leader, Jesse has helped raise the collective standard of professionalism across the doula community.  Her experience has allowed her to act as a liaison with the maternity care system and to help build the first on-staff doula program in the state.  She has been foundational in the development and implementation of the new Oregon Doula Association and will continue to be a powerful advocate for doulas as we move toward new avenues of professional integration.
