My name is Jenn Carlson and I live in Springfield, VA with my rock musician/film critic husband of ten years, Eddie. We have two beautiful daughters who are four and seven years old. I also attended Norwich University: the Military College of Vermont and an IT and theater professional.
The birth of my daughters in less than ideal circumstances and our journey to breastfeeding ignited my passion about birth choices and breastfeeding advocacy. This avocation led to the genesis of Prodigious Birth Services.
I am a CBI and DONA Trained, Madriella Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula. In addition I am a Childbirth Educator, an AHA Infant CPR instructor, a certified Reiki practitioner, and an independent encapsulation specialist.
I teach a breastfeeding class once a month that emphasizes partner support and support for the working breastfeeding mother along with Infant and Child CPR and First Aid. I also teach childbirth education through Momease. I have attended both Bradley and Hypnobirthing classes and in my practice I frequently use a rebozo after learning techniques from the great Gena Kirby. I also have experience and training in working with victims of abuse as well as mothers who have experienced infant loss. I have a particular soft spot for high risk mothers like me who need to know that they have choices with their medical care.
