German Certified Naturopath Jennifer Eisenecker has been undergoing training with Childbirth International since 2018. She is an advocate for gentle and evidence-based birth to support the emotional and physical wellbeing during your labour and birth of your child.
Jennifer is a member of the Doulas of Singapore and supports women during the birth of their child in her capacity as a Trainee Birth Doula at Thomson Medical Centre.
She has attended training in the “Spinning Babies” method which she combine with my other hands-on bodywork techniques to prepare you for a fearless and confident birth and to relieve pain.
She is a member of the association “Doulas of Singapore” and “Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health” (USA).
In her trauma work with children and female patients, Jennifer has many times observed the importance of a positive birth experience for both mother and baby.
Pregnancy and birth can trigger fears from previous emotionally intense experiences, such as sexual violence, a difficult pregnancy or birth. Ideally, Jennifer’s support for you is going to start as early in the pregnancy as possible or whenever you feel the need to start processing old emotions and trauma to prepare for your birth and develop confidence in your abilities and body. Jennifer has a calm, gentle, and reassuring way of interacting with birth clients. She will support you in all your choices without judgement.
If you want, Jennifer will support you during your birth with a gentle healing touch which may help you feel calm and therefore possibly less pain, firm hip squeezes, or with a rebozo (birth shawl) which may be used to ease pain by taking off some pressure from the belly or help open the pelvis.
Jennifer practices a trauma-aware approach to support you in feeling empowered without feeling judged.
