The Dolphin Method™ is a series of 12 principals that, when utilized, can dramatically improve the quality of women's pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum experiences. Since 1999, Jennifer has dedicated her life to improving women's birthing experiences, weaving in her years of training and practice as a hypnotherapist and yoga teacher with a quest for truth and good research; sifting through the myths, facts and benefits of beliefs and practices in pregnancy and birth. Through her discernment, ongoing research and practice, Jennifer has created a method for pregnant women to engage in a safe and challenging vinyasa yoga practice to prepare for labor, much like a marathon runner trains for race day.

The Dolphin Method increases the likelihood of a positive and enjoyable labor and birth. In addition to her expertise in Prenatal Yoga, Jennifer has applied her techniques and philosophy in over 450 births and 10,000 hours of labor she's attended as a Doula and the thousands of students she's trained all over the world.
