Jae Carey. Birth stories matter. Having been adopted, and naturally introspective about origin stories all her life, Jae attends with great care to the life transitions of others. Especially after the birth of her own child, she realized firsthand the importance of emotional and non-clinical support during labor. And as someone who never quite fit any mold, her support is truly inclusive, non-judgmental, and full-spectrum. She has trained with Ancient Song Doula Services, DONA, the Center for Breastfeeding, and the Institute for the study of Birth, Breath, and Death. She welcomes and supports all bodies, histories, and preferences. Her background is also as a meditation and wellness instructor for over 10 years in various contexts throughout the city. She practices calm companioning, skillful advocacy, and feels honored to play a role in the unique unfolding of each new story and family.
