Veronica Jacobsen, BA, CD(DONA), CLC, CPST, LCCE, FACCE
Executive Director of Education and Support
Veronica started with a B.A. in English and a Certificate in Asian Studies from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH. After the birth of her daughter, she attended the training to become a doula in November 2006, and became a certified doula through DONA in August of 2007. Veronica was so in love with helping families with birth that she became a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator in December of 2007. In April of 2008, she trained to become a Certified Lactation Counselor, and earned the designation of a CLC by the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice.
Veronica taught childbirth, breastfeeding, and sibling classes at a small hospital in Rochester, MN. She has also worked as a volunteer birth doula and still provide support to mothers who are experiencing a suspected miscarriage through a local hospital program.
Veronica has experience with families who have taken Bradley Birth Classes, Hypnobirthing, home births, hospital births, as well as mothers attempting VBACs. This wide variety of goals and experiences has allowed her to create a rich, wonderful patchwork of information from which she is able to draw upon as a professional.
“I take great joy in helping mothers with traumatic or disappointing birth experiences that require extra support and understanding, and I love to help every family through this wonderful journey!”
