Aloha! My name is Jackie.

 

I was born and raised on the east side of O’ahu, currently residing in Kailua. I have two young children, Liam and Hailey.  Before pregnancy, I always had a fascination with birth. I, almost every time, was brought to tears listening to peoples birth stories. Just seeing their faces light up when they talked about the long-awaited moment they got to meet their baby made me even more excited for when my time was to come.

 

A few years later, I became pregnant with my first and I knew that I deeply desired a natural birth. I was so excited and looking forward to having my own story to share, but that soon turned into fear when I thought to myself “wow, this is really happening” *insert panic emoji here lol. Aside from all the amazing birth stories I’ve heard, I quickly realized that I was somehow holding onto fearful images ingrained in my mind from the way birth is portrayed on TV, and from my own family's stories. I knew that I needed to do something to change that if I wanted the type of birth I desired.

 

Then, a few dear friends of ours recommended the Birth Believers course. We jumped wholeheartedly into the class feeling hopeful but not knowing what to expect and we were blown away. Not only did the course completely change my perspective, but we felt so well informed that we decided the right option for us was to plan for a home birth.

 

We went on to have an amazing birth with the Birth Believers including the fundamental support of a doula and It was shortly after that I realized I not only was more in love with the birth world but I truly felt a calling to be a part of it. I wanted to be a doula, and to further my education in hopes that I could provide the same support that helped me through labor.

 

Birth is beautiful because of its spontaneity and the surrendering that takes place in its natural process. I believe mothers deserve more than what they see on TV and more than what our broken system in America provides. Although birth is spontaneous and doesn't always go as planned, it is my goal as a doula to help mothers feel safe, supported, and satisfied with their pregnancy and birth experiences (no matter where they choose to birth).

 

Aside from furthering my birth education, I enjoy spending my time outdoors. I love getting in a good weight lifting session alongside my husband, spending time with my children in our pool outback, and curling up on the couch with our three cats watching a rom com.

 

Someone once told me, to find the right doula is like finding your “Cinderella glass slipper”. It is my hope to be the right ‘fit’ for you and it would be my honor to support your family through one of your most significant moments together in welcoming your baby into the world.
