Let me introduce myself... my name is Shannon Jimenez. I am currently 28 years old and a mother of two beautiful boys (Thane, 6 and Holden, 2). We have two dogs and two hedgehogs. I am an animal lover through and through. I completed 2 years of vet school before I had my first son. I became a mother at the age of 20 and had what I would call a traumatic pregnancy and birth. I was so young and had no idea what to expect as most new mothers don't anticipate how intense pregnancy and labor can be. Even though it was traumatic, I was a new mother and so so in love with my new son. Second time around I did a lot of research on how to better have support and know how my ideal labor would go. Game changer! My second birth was magical and exactly how I would've dreamt it up. After having such different experiences, my heart started pulling me to become a Doula to help women and empower them. I want to help women see the beauty and strength their body can provide and how great the birthing experience can be with the right support system. Let me assist you have that incredible and empowering experience and support.
There are many reasons to hire a Doula; statistics show having a doula can: greatly reduce chances of needing a c-section, make it less likely to need an induction, less likely to request pain medicine, possibility of having slightly shorter labors and parents in the long run be happier with the birthing experience.
Top 10 reasons you should hire a Doula
A birth Doula is basically a walking birth plan. We are here to assist and advocate for the mother and the family. Tending to your every need and want. If things cannot go as planned, we are here to help guide you on the next steps to take and recommend things to make transitioning to new plans easier. My wish is to help make this an intimate experience about you and your spouse (if applicable) and about what the next chapter in your life holds with your new bundle of joy.
My Doula services are a flat rate fee. The fee covers my care for you from our date of contract signing through our postpartum visit. I strive to serve you the best I can, however childbirth is not predictable. Should something arise during labor, there are no refunds if it is a short birth or a c-section (planned or emergency). There is also no extra charge should it be a long labor.
