Jennifer Ivans is passionate about birth and babies! As a mother of five children, who has been a doula to nearly 100 couples and a childbirth educator to hundreds, her extensive knowledge and years of experience supporting women and their birthing choices is invaluable. She believes that the birth of a child offers a profound opportunity to positively impact the health and well-being of the entire family.
Jennifer was born and raised in the Denver area before attending CSU for her B.S. in Psychology. That interest in human behavior, medical field work, and her own births led to discovering this dream career. Personally experiencing a cesarean section, 4 VBAC’s (vaginal birth after cesarean), inductions, un-medicated, epidural, and miscarriage just enhance her compassion and desire to help each woman create her own experience.
Jennifer officially started Beautiful Beginnings Birth Services in 2009. She is a certified labor doula (CAPPA), a certified childbirth instructor (ICEA), a certified childbirth hypnosis instructor (Hypnobabies), and a certified lactation counselor (Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice). Her vision is to share her passion for the natural beauty of birth. As a trained birth companion she supports families planning hospital or home births, un-medicated or epidural, c-sections, single moms, same-sex couples, teens, and adoptions.
Her practice as a childbirth professional is all about preparing parents for their journey by providing the emotional and physical support, as well as the knowledge people need in order to feel calm and confident about their choices. Discovering the abundance of tools available to assist the laboring mom in remaining relaxed and peaceful gives couples the courage and strength for a confident, empowering experience. Allow Jennifer to assist you in your Beautiful Beginning!
