"A woman carries her birth story with her for a lifetime and we wanted to look back on our story fondly. We wanted to feel safe, valued and understood and Jennifer helped us feel all of those."

​- Abigail  


"I feel so grateful that Jennifer was a part of the birth of our son, and I would wish that same level of support, knowledge and calm reassurance for every woman preparing for birth. She is worth her weight in gold, and you will give your whole family the gift of a more fulfilling birth and postnatal experience."

​- Alesha


"There are only a handful of times during a lifetime when you will meet someone and know that they have a special gift for what they do – Jennifer is one of them."

With love and intention, The Birth Year was born out of the desire to holistically support families through all seasons of their Birthing Journey, from Pregnancy to Birth, through to Postpartum. 


​With over 20+ years working with expecting individuals and families, I am one of the Fraser Valley's most experienced Holistic Perinatal Practitioners.  As a mother of six children, I understand the enormity of bringing life into this world. I have experienced the physical, emotional and spiritual transformation that takes place during the birth year, and I know how important it is to be supported.


My services are offered to encourage connection between your heart and intuition, and to nourish your whole self so that you move through the seasons of your birth year with confidence, ease and serenity.


I AM A LOVING HEART, LISTENING EARS AND HELPING HANDS FOR YOUR WHOLE BEING DURING YOUR BIRTH YEAR.


I am so honoured that you are here, considering me, to be a part of your Birth Year, and I hope that this is the beginning of a beautiful connection between the two of us.
