Jenn DeWaard, LM, CPM
In 2005, my first baby was born breech, prematurely and via cesarean section. I quickly learned about VBCAs for subsequent children. In 2008, I became a childbirth educator and doula. In 2009, after struggling with secondary infertility, I had my second baby, born into my husband's waiting hands. My life was changed. I wanted every pregnant person to feel empowered in their birth. I went on to have my last two babies as water births at home as well. I began working at West Michigan Midwifery in 2016 as an assistant, and in 2017 became an official student. I finish my training in 2019 to become a licensed midwife. In my free time, I love exploring the lakeshore with my family and knitting baby hats for the families we serve.
