My name is Jen Hamilton and I am a birth and postpartum doula in Seattle, WA. After loving the first part of my adult life as a mom and early childhood educator, I am now doing my dream work. I did my birth doula training with Big Belly Services in the Spring of 2016, and my postpartum training through the Simkin Center at Bastyr University that same summer. I have since been able to attend births at homes and local hospitals, learn from wonderful mentors, and feel the welcoming and supportive spirit of the doula community here.
I believe that EVERY family can have a beautiful beginning with the right support. I have experienced empowering home births and empowering cesarean births; have witnessed babies bonded beautifully through both breast and bottle feeding. Love is what makes a family, and the right doula as part of your birth and/or postpartum team can help your family figure out how to translate your love into action, with support and without judgment. I especially love working with families who are open and eager to learn, and I find those are often the families I learn from the most.
