Jennifer Young is a Certified Lamaze Childbirth Educator and has been teaching Childbirth Education Classes in the Ottawa area for over a decade. Jennifer has undertaken training with Ottawa CEA, CAPPA Canada Childbirth Educator and Lactation Educator, and has taken Birthing From Within training. She is a DONA trained doula and has attended many births in between giving birth to her own three children. Jennifer has witnessed home, hospital, natural as well as cesarean births. In addition, her own three birth stories are unique, having experienced a cesarean birth for her first child, which encouraged her to enter into the childbirth field as a teacher. Her first birth gave her the strength and courage to facilitate empowering birth choices which enabled her to have positive natural births for her two younger children.
In addition to working as a Certified Childbirth Educator and Doula, Jennifer is also a Registered Massage Therapist and certified Yoga Instructor. She furthered her yoga training and now teaches many styles; however, her passion is working with pregnant and postpartum women. She is highly respected in the birth and yoga community and is often asked to train other yoga teachers on how to teach pre and post natal yoga. Jennifer is a Registered Massage Therapist and is certified through the CMTO and a member of the RMTAO.
