Jessica English DONA Doula Trainer


I’ve been a doula for more than a dozen years, and I’ve supported hundreds of families through their births. My schedule as a trainer keeps me hopping, but I still find time to take birth and postpartum doula clients in my hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan. (It’s the heart of what I love about this work!) I also own Birth Kalamazoo, Michigan’s first and longest-running doula agency. Click here to learn more about me — we’ll be spending four days together!

doula training review

"I came into my doula training with Jessica ready to hit the ground running as a full-time doula, switching out of a career that wasn’t fulfilling or feeding my soul. I’d taken another doula training about 15 years before, but the timing wasn’t right for me to do the work then, and all I really remembered was how to do the double hip squeeze. I loved Jessica’s training. She built a strong community for us from day one and we learned so much about how this career really works. I’m a full-time doula now and I think it’s one of the luckiest decisions I ever made to take Jessica’s workshop. It changed my life!"
