"As soon as my husband and I found out we were expecting we instantly called Jennifer! We knew we wanted her apart of our journey as our doula and lactation consultant since day one! Right off the back, she gave us so much comfort, tools, and resources to make this experience as great as it could be for both of us!
Throughout the entire nine months, we had multiple appointments with Jennifer at our home, where she not only prepped us for labor and delivery but also began to create a close bond.
Closer to our due date we heard from Jennifer every day. It was so comforting to know that we truly had someone on our side who not only is skilled but genuinely cared. My husband and I decided to have a home birth and it was the most amazing experience. Although I labored literally for three days, I wouldn’t change my story. Jen was with us every single moment. I mean I woke up and she was on our couch. She stayed the night- our minds were blown. From her affirming me, to walking up the steps with me for hours, to encouraging my husband and family. I remember those last few pushes, I was getting tired and Jen was in one ear and my husband was in another- telling me that “I can do this”... and only a moment later I pushed out Nova!
It didn’t stop there- Jen cared for my days and weeks after having my little princess as a lactation consultant. She is truly an expert in this field. We had difficulties latching and with her expertise, we finally found our groove!
All this to say- Jennifer is heaven sent! Our birth story is so much better because of her. She is trustworthy, reliant, patient, nurturing, and an expert. We are so grateful for Jennifer and she is now apart of our family forever!"

"India Jones the doula made my birthing experience a claiming and judgement free natural experience. I sought the services of India during my 2nd pregnancy. I was induced my first pregnancy and labored 36 hours in the hospital. Nothing natural at all. I opted to take a different approach for my second child. India was patient during my pregnancy and answered all the questions l had. Any issue or problem that came up, she gave me multiple solutions to the problem. I was high risk and I recieved medical advice from my doctor. I sought a more natural approach to the matter which India provided with documentation to support the suggestion. She is very knowledgeable and no question was viewed as "stupid". No matter the time of day she was there. During my birth I had 3 additional people in the room beside her and my husband. She provided me with breathing techniques and calming strategies. She could see when my body was tensing up and encourage me to break the tension. When I had embrassing moments during my birth she assured me that everything was normal. She was never judgemental about my choices and made me feel extremely comfortable. When I could not speak up about my discomforts she was my voice. I felt like she was going through the whole process with me. When my baby was breech she got in the pool with me and we swam to get her to move in position. She assured me that if she didn't move that was fine too. If you are looking for someone to make your birthing experience natural, carefree, non judgmental and comforting, India is your go to doula!" - Ashley
"After working with Jennifer, I swear this woman is a saint. She changed our lives! I was unable to breastfeed my first child after he was sent back to the hospital for failure to thrive. I thoroughly prepared (or so I thought) to breastfeed my second son. After delivery, getting him to latch properly was a struggle. I was having more and more pain with every feeding and by day 3 I was in tears with him on my breast. I called Jennifer desperate for some help. I did not want to give up breastfeeding, but I had this fear of repeating what happened with my first child. Jennifer and I had an in depth conversation about the issues and what was going on. She agreed that it was an emergency situation and went out of her way to come over and help us that evening. Although I know she had somewhere else to be, she did not make us feel rushed at all. She sat with us and patiently went over what was going on, and examined my son and I. She quickly figured out the issues and worked with us on a solution. We were feeling very overwhelmed but she quickly set our minds at ease and helped us get my son to latch properly. She did not leave us until we were fully comfortable and confident to continue on our own. Since then I have contacted her a number of times with questions or concerns and she is always patient, thoughtful, and helpful. We're so happy and grateful to have her as part of our team! We can't thank you enough Jennifer!" ~Alaina
"Jennifer was fantastic. In my second week postpartum I was upset because breastfeeding was not going well. I wanted to exclusively breastfeed my little one but I was ready to give up. Jennifer was able to come over that day and in 2 hours give me peace of mind. She was extremely professional and had a lot of information. She was also able to answer all of my questions I had, plus more. I was successfully able to get my little one latched without pain and feeding the correct way. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a lactation consultant. " ~ Jessica M.
"I called Jennifer when my daughter was only a few weeks old. Unfortunately, breastfeeding was tougher than I could have ever imagined. The first time she came over she helped build my confidence that I can do this and it will take time to figure it out. She helped with my daughters latch to ensure that everything looked and felt ok. Over time a few other problems came up and Jennifer was there to again help with my specific needs with my daughter. I didn't want to give up on nursing and have had goals along the way that Jennifer has helped me achieve. I don't think I can ever thank her enough for her support and knowledge throughout the past four months. She is truly passionate about what she does and has been there to help every step of the way." ~ Ashley S.
"When my son was born he latched immediately. When he was diagnosed with jaundice things changed drastically. He was syringe fed and cup fed. We fought to keep formula and bottles out of his mouth. I pumped to make all the colostrum and milk I could get before he had any formula. By the time we left the hospital he wouldn't latch. The lactation consultant suggested a support group of breastfeeding women. So we went to Meet Nurse Love. I thought I had come to peace in my heart that I would just bottle feed my breast milk to my baby. If I couldn't nurse him at least he would get my milk. That's what I thought. Then I met Jennifer and my heart broke as I told her our short story while watching other mom's nurse their babies. She patiently took me to a room next door and she got my baby to latch. That moment, that support changed my thoughts, and I cried. I wanted to nurse my baby more than I had shared with anyone. He has latched ever since. He is almost five months old and nursing exclusively. I love our group. It's full of so much love, support, new information, and did I say love? I now nurse in public, discreetly without a cover because this group gave me confidence to not feel ashamed to nurse my baby in public. My husband and I are very thankful for our support group and for Jennifer. They are a second family and we love going. Without the group I probably would have not had the strength to even pump and feed my baby. Support in nursing is so important and we have a whole group to encourage each other. It's wonderful!" ~ Aimee T.
"After 17 hours of labor, a severe vaginal tear and extreme exhaustion breastfeeding was the furthest thing from my mind. My postpartum nurse was amazing at everything, except for helping my son latch. It was the worst experience ever after delivering. Not to mention, it was a weekend evening, which meant lactation services weren't available. Quickly remembering Jennifer’s business card, I made the call the following morning while still in the hospital. I was scared of what to expect from breastfeeding especially after the night I had with my nurse. I knew it was risky calling due to it being the weekend but to my surprise she not only answered but was available to do a same day consult. Nervously accepting the appointment, Jennifer’s visit to the hospital was "first class", all my fears and anxieties were silenced. Jennifer was patient, informal and caring. Her knowledge and explanation of things was simple and easy to remember. She went over and beyond to the point she requested supplies from the hospital I had no idea were available to me. The service provided during my hospital stay by Jennifer, was exceptional and exceeded all expectations. Before leaving she saw I was still a little uncomfortable and concerned as to whether I could do it on my own, in seeing that she offered to do a home visit once discharged. I was very thankful. During the home visit Jennifer brought some tools to help ease breastfeeding. My son latched with NO PAIN whatsoever, I didn't even have discomfort. He latched and we both had a successful feeding. My son is now two months old and I still pick up the phone to call for advice and she is always willing to answer my questions. Overall, I couldn't have asked for better service. I recommend Jennifer to all my friends and anyone who has had a bad experience in the past. She is the bomb.com." ~ Tekeyah G.
Mrs. Jones served as Doula for our family during the pregnancies and births of our three sons in the years 2012, 2015, and 2018.
I met Mrs. Jones shortly after becoming married and relocating to Michigan from Ohio. Upon meeting her, I found her to be friendly and pleasant; which made way to the discussion of her Doula services (one of her many gifts). For my first pregnancy, Mrs. Jones was hired as our Doula in apprentice with a Mid-wife of which she referred to us. During this time, Mrs. Jones and the Mid-wife encouraged and referred me to materials that supremely and abundantly increased my knowledge and education about my pregnant body, pregnancy, natural delivery, natural parenting, infant care, the birthing journey, and much more. This information aided me with my other pregnancies and deliveries and has allowed me to pass this information on to other families. We were so impressed with Mrs. Jones services that we contracted with her to be our Doula with each additional pregnancy sans a midwife.
I found Mrs. Jones to be accessible and responsive to our questions, flexible with scheduling appointments, wonderful at navigating in her role as Doula amidst hospital doctors and staff as well as with family members, and excellent in her Post Doula care services - she took our cloth diapers to her home to wash and prep for our baby’s arrival because our washing machine was inoperable. She really helped me during each pregnancy and we are so grateful for her professionalism, bedside manner, and the unique personal touch that she offers. Lastly, with our growing family, we found her pricing to be fair and in alignment with her service offerings.
India was an awesome support for my husband and I. Every time we met with her, especially during pregnancy, she spent time to make sure all our questions were answered. She was such a huge support during my labor - very encouraging, and did all that she could to help me get through my contractions. I’m talking back and foot massages, tens machine, applying pressure, and so much more! She created such a safe environment where I felt like I had sound advice with weighing the pros and cons on the interventions I agreed to in the days leading up to labor and during labor. With her coaching and sharing of evidence based information, I always felt like I had a choice and felt secure in my decisions. During the postpartum period she helped me so much with breastfeeding and general newborn care …. just her presence in the house was a gift. I can’t imagine going through my pregnancy and labor without her - WE LOVE YOU INDIA!!
