Music Therapy Assisted Child Birth
What We Believe
We believe that every birth and delivery story is unique yet all are deserving of a special, spiritual and supported experience.
We believe that music, relaxation, energy work and introspection & expression promoting methods aid us in discovering a centered, grounded and trusting birthing experience.
We believe that women are strong, resilient and fiercely loving and our main mission is to illuminate the power and resources that already exist within her.
What is Mamabird Birthing?
Jenna received her certification in the Sound Birthing Method in March of 2016 under the instruction of Music Therapy Assisted Child Birth guru and expert, Mary Dicamillo.
Jenna's approach to Music Therapy Assisted Child Birth is informed by the Sound Birthing Method and incorporates additional elements of meditation, relaxation and empowerment techniques into the birthing process and extends beyond prenatal and delivery to include postpartum support.
Jenna's extensive experience working with premature infants and their caregivers on the NICU, PICU, maternity units, labor and delivery units and with mother's hospitalized on bedrest provides her with a specialized awareness and understanding of the medical setting which aids her ability to advocate for mothers and to maintain a calm and supportive atmosphere amidst potentially chaotic and stressful situations.
