Meet the Doula-(Agency Owner) Jodi Long
I certified as a birth doula in 1998 with the Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators. For over 20 years, I have worked to empower women to take their birthing experiences and their postpartum health into their own hands. I became a doula before many knew what the word even meant!
My passion has always been to support families of all shapes and sizes on this incredible, and often intimidating, journey into parenthood. In 2004, after the birth of my second daughter, I suffered from clinical postpartum depression and realized the great gap in postpartum care that exists in this country. I am a Certified Postpartum & Infant Care Doula with Prodoula as well as a Professional Affiliate Instructor with the Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth (http://www.bradleybirth.com/jodigraves). I am a mom of 2 (nearly) grown daughters and one spoiled Corgy. In my free time, I am a Nutritionist finishing a program in Dietetics and a trained Herbalist with Dr. Aviva Romm, MD.
