In addition to being a childbirth doula, I am also a poet and a writer. Feel free to visit my poetry home, Sanctuary Poet ... check out my latest collection of birth poems, Epiphany ...  or visit my blog, Christian Doula Thoughts.

Jane's Professional Organizations:

I am a childbirth doula through DONA (Doulas of North America), a childbirth educator through BirthWorks International, and a lactation counselor through Lactation Education Consultants. I have received additional training from ALACE/TOLABOR and Mercy in Action that has aided me in assisting midwives in homebirth. I often write for Midwifery Today magazine, and I am a member of Christian Midwives International.
