About Jen

Nourishing Birth with Jen Nelson - Doula Services in Lane County

My mission is to positively affect reproductive and parenting outcomes in our community through education and advocacy.

Since 1998, I have been supporting families as a certified Full-Spectrum doula. Originally from Florence, Oregon, I serve families across Lane County – Eugene, Springfield, Deadwood, Mapleton, Swisshome, Walton, Veneta, and neighboring coastal cities including Coos Bay, Reedsport, and Yachats.

I regularly support births at Our Community Birth Center, Oregon Birth and Wellness, McKenzie Willammette, Bay Area Hospital in Coos Bay, and Home births to meet you where you are.

I accept OHP Trillium and Pacific Source insurance.
