Jenny has been a passionate homebirth midwife since 1989 and is the founder of Albuquerque Homebirth, a practice that specializes in water birth, hypnosis for birth, Total Body Modification, CranioSacral care, independent placenta educator. Jenny is famous for making women feel empowered and in control by putting them back in the driver's seat of their own birth without being narrow minded about what birth should look like, knowing that each woman's birth is going to be different. Her intuition about what a mom needs at any point in labor is always spot on, whether it is to be left alone for awhile, do some craniosacral or give her words of encouragement. Her ability to just flow with what ever is needed and if there is a "crisis" no one ever really realizes how worried she might have been because of how calm she stays, therefore, no one else gets worried. A quote from a repeat client, "Jenny, you are the perfect blend of "Hippie, Voodoo, Zen Master who flows with birth and Master Medical Midwife who can take charge when needed"
