Jen Crawford

Jen is a DONA trained Birth & Postpartum Doula and is one of Ireland's most respected Postpartum Doulas. Jen has boundless experience supporting families during their postpartum experience. Jen specialises with the care of preterm and sick babies and brings this area of expertise to support all families. Jen has supported families from all different backgrounds, with many different parenting choices. Jen is also a Cuidiú Antenatal Educator and Breastfeeding Counsellor.

She lives in North Dublin with her husband Paul and their two children, Seth and Leon. In 2013 Jen began to work as the Breastfeeding Coordinator for a national charity Irish Premature Babies. This gave Jen the opportunity to support families through many different situations. She has supported parents with babies born from 23 weeks gestation and stayed with them right through to bringing their baby home. She still stays in touch with many of these families and they all have a special place in her heart. During her time in this role she also supported many parents of multiples and also walked the journey of loss with some.

Jen has run many workshops nationwide for health care professionals and parents. She was also extremely proud to be co-author of the only HSE booklet available for breastfeeding preterm and sick babies.

Booklet available here “Breastfeeding & Expressing for your Preterm or Sick Baby.”

Over the years Jen has built up strong relationships with health care professionals across the country and has worked hard to build her professional reputation. She gives her heart to each family she supports and meets each family where they are at, with no judgement or preconceptions.

Jen brings warmth, understanding and calm to everyone she meets and would describe herself as a “people person”. She is passionate about birth and early parenting and strives to empower parents with support and knowledge so parents can make informed decisions about their individual journey. Jen feels so privileged to be welcomed into her clients homes and hearts and truly savours each experience with them.

She is so excited to bring her passion and drive to DoulaCare Ireland and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
