My name is Jacqueline George and I'm a DONA-Trained Birth Doula! I'm also a wife, a mom, a registered nurse, a yoga teacher, and a small-business owner, just to name a few things!
I have always had a passion for birth, from the time I was two years-old and my mom was pregnant with my sister. We would read "A Child Is Born" and look at all the amazing pictures together. I always thought my nursing career would take me into Labor & Delivery, but life had other plans for me. I worked in emergency medicine for five years and met my wonderful husband, then in surgical recovery for two years, and finally hospital administration for two more years. It was only after having to my own son that I realized how much I wanted to go back to where it all began for me: labor and birth.
I gave birth during the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we had amazing nurses and doctors, I would have loved to have a doula there providing constant support for myself and my husband. After I was discharged home, I completed my prenatal yoga and birth doula certifications, knowing now what my purpose was: to provide support to birthing women and their loved ones. It has taken eleven years, but my path has come full circle. I hope I can provide care, support, and empowerment to many mothers, babies, and families in the future!
