ABOUT ME

Rikki Jenkins, B.S, CLC, Doula

My main goal is for you to be informed, feel secure, and supported throughout your pregnancy, birthing, and feeding journey whatever that may look like for you. Everyone's journey is different and that is why I believe that providing non-judgmental, unbiased, all inclusive support is essential.   

 

 Hi! I'm Rikki Jenkins, I am a wife, mother to a wild & fun toddler, & two fur babies! As a doula, childbirth educator, and certified lactation counselor, I have a passion for supporting families through one of the most sacred times in their life of bringing new life into the world. As someone who has been through pregnancy, birth, and navigating the ups and downs of infant feeding, I truly believe that all birthing people and families deserve support through their journey in parenthood. 

MY APPROACH

 Taking a lactation class and a childbirth class during pregnancy is crucial. Many believe that their provider will teach them all they need to know about birth and infant feeding. The truth is, there's simply not enough time to do this! With a childbirth class you are able to learn the unknown, dispel myths, and have a more empowered birthing and feeding time. 

My qualifications include: 

  • Bachelor's of Science Degree in Maternal Child Health and Human Lactation with an emphasis in Social Justice

  • Birth, Postpartum, and Infant Care Doula

  • Childbirth Educator 

  • Evidence Based Birth® Instructor

  • Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC)

  • Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED Certified
