PLEASED TO MEET YOU

Welcome. I am so glad to have you here. My name is Jenna Stubbe. I am a local Doula, Mentor, Artist, and the heart and hands behind Mother Willow.

 

Since I was a child, the process of reproduction has absolutely fascinated me. My childhood books about pregnancy anatomy and 'Where Babies Come From', were never far out of reach. Whether I was helping my barbies give birth, sculpting womb babies out of clay or watching the animals birth on our family farm, I was passionate about childbirth from the start. As I look back I understand that I was always destined for this work. After becoming a Mother myself, I finally answered that calling and began my Doula training. I have now gratefully been serving families professionally since 2014.

My calling to birth work has been present since I was a young child. That calling has influenced my choices in educational opportunities, personal development, and experiences throughout my entire life. Much of this has proven extremely beneficial and necessary to my skills and current service as a Doula and Mentor. I consistently work at continuing my education through books, videos, classes/ training, communicating with other professionals/ community members, and personal development.
