Jennifer Parker relocated from the mountains of western Pennsylvania to the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina in 2000. The natural births of her daughters had changed her life in a remarkable way. In 2002, Amilya’s birth was quiet, peaceful, and was supported by a midwife and doula at the Outer Banks Birth Center. In 2010, due to no local midwives, Jennifer had driven an hour for midwifery care during her pregnancy. Leah Penelope was born in a hospital just 30 minutes after arriving, into the hands of an amazing nurse.
Jennifer was so eager to learn more about supporting women. She became a CAPPA trained Labor Doula and a co-founder of the Outer Banks BirthNetwork.
In a moment of fate, she came across the Sacred Pregnancy book in a local bookstore. She found what had been missing during her own pregnancy and birth experiences; sisterhood- her ‘TRIBE’, togetherness, the SACRED. In 2013, her life was forever changed after attending a Sacred Pregnancy Retreat in Cape Hatteras, NC. She incorporates Sacred Pregnancy into her mothering and marriage and hopes that her daughters will have a Sacred Sisterhood and experience an empowering Sacred Pregnancy of their own.
Jennifer’s journey is taking a new direction as she brings Sacred Pregnancy to Asheville NC, where she will be guiding women on their beauty-FULL journey into motherhood.
Jennifer is certified to teach the 8-week Pregnancy Journey classes + the 4-week Birth Journey classes.
