Jennifer delugach | RN, Postpartum Doula, CLEC

Jennifer is a nurturing caregiver with a passion for helping families during the childbearing year. She is a RN, licensed since 1999, with experience as a postpartum and well-baby nurse, childbirth educator, and midwife assistant. She is also the mother of 3 almost grown children. Jennifer has a bachelor of science in Biological Sciences from UC Davis and she completed her prelicensure nursing education at UCSF. She was an ICEA certified childbirth educator until 2006. In 2011 Jennifer enhanced her education with the lactation educator counselor certification (CLEC) from UCSD. She is currently working towards her postpartum doula certification from DONA international and launched her postpartum doula business in September of 2017. Jennifer thoroughly enjoys postpartum doula work supporting family members with diverse backgrounds, lifestyles, parenting styles, and breastfeeding goals as they connect and bond with their new babies and with each other during this special and sensitive time. Jennifer recognizes the challenges new parents face when receiving conflicting advice from family, friends, health care providers, and others. She believes the doula's role in providing nonjudgmental support to the parents is unique, beneficial, and respectful of the fact that the parents are responsible for their babies 24/7 and must do what they believe works best for their family. Jennifer is available to work days and nights. She is honored to provide in-home postpartum support including feeding support (breast, bottle, pumping, or combo), practical household help, a listening ear with an open heart, and education.
