Doulas of Des Moines
Your choices. Our unbiased support.




Jen English

Jen supports parents, infants, and families and wants all parents to truly be heard. She knows that parents can so easily get “lost” in the chaos and infatuation of a new baby, or in self-doubts and inexperience. By intuitively meeting their needs, Jen helps clients gain confidence and find their voices. She completed her training as a Postpartum and Infant Care Doula through ProDoula in February 2017 and combines her professional training with her personal experience and compassion to provide exceptional support to the families she serves. She lives in Des Moines with her husband, Wade, 12-year-old bonus daughter, Emma (who is far cooler than Jen), the current President and CEO of the household (two-year-old Journey), and Juno, who joined the family in August 2017. The family loves making music, vacationing, camping, cooking (sometimes), movies, and anything that involves wearing costumes! When Jen’s not supporting clients or doting on her own family, she enjoys live music and trying new restaurants. Jen is dedicated to being a constant source of support for the individuals and families she serves, no matter the season, day of the week, or time of day, through all the different situations for which they may want or need support. She provides Postpartum and Infant Care Doula services.
