Jenica Thompson | CMT, Birth Doula
My name is Jenica Thompson, and I am a DONA trained Birth Doula, as well as a Certified Massage Therapist, specializing in prenatal massage. I am also a member of Destiny Christian Church where I work with an amazing team, loving our community through our Outreach ministry. I have a passion for children, and I am currently pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education. I believe that child development begins even before birth, which is why I originally became a birth doula.
I became a Certified Massage Therapist in 2001, and received certifications in Prenatal Massage and Infant Massage Education in 2002. In 2008, I attended my first birth as a birth doula. This experience led me to see more clearly the need for women to be empowered by other women during birth. I spend time preparing mothers and their birth partners for their upcoming birth, educating both parents on the procedures and medications used in hospital births, providing physical and emotional comfort, and coaching dads to be more effective birth partners for their wives. This is one of my favorite parts of the job, and I look forward to meeting you and supporting you in whatever way I can!
I provide prenatal consultations and birth doula services to those who will be delivering in area hospitals, birth centers, and at home. I also provide faith based services for those who desire it as well.
