I recently was provided care by Jen Ross of Lionheart midwifery. After trying to go the local women's health practice and plan on hospital birth, I realized I couldn't go that route any further in my pregnancy. The care that I was recieving was impersonal. With different midwives every visit I felt like I was a folder not a person. I was scared of what would happen during labor in a hospital full of people I had never even met, how would I be treated then? I decided to look for a midwife and see if it was an option for me. I quickly found Jen Ross of Lionheart Midwifery and setup the consultation. I knew from the first appointment that it was a better option for me so we moved forward with no pressure from her. Our prenatal appointments were very thorough, she was very knowledgeable and offered me options. Jen was organized and professional yet personable and easy to talk to. The delivery went very smoothly, it was a completely natural process that I can reflect on with a smile. I was also extremely impressed with the aftercare we received. She was easy to reach by text with any questions and her visits at home put me at ease and made the whole experience magical. I can't recommend Jen Ross from Lionheart Midwifery enough. It's easy to tell she has a true passion for what she does!
Jennifer is a phenomenal midwife. From the moment you meet her she radiates warmth and calm. She is patient, intelligent and extraordinarily thoughtful. She respected my bodily autonomy and supported my informed choices while caring for me. I recommend her highly.
Jennifer was the midwife for my second pregnancy. I can't say enough about how wonderful she was! I first found her when I was having trouble conceiving (after a very difficult first pregnancy that ended in a C-section). She worked with me for about 3 months to help me identify and improve areas in my stress level, nutrition and movement that were hindering my chances of conception. It didn't take long to get pregnant with baby #2 and we hired her right away. I already knew she was experienced with people trying to have a VBAC (Vaginal birth after cesarean) and even though we talked at length about potential complications (with VBAC & all birth) I felt confident and safe knowing she was right there with us on the journey. My pregnancy was SO different than the first. I still had the major morning sickness, the incredible hip pain, the overwhelming fatigue... but I had someone that HEARD me and offered me sage advice that helped heal my physical and emotional body. In my first pregnancy, the doctors I saw barley spent any time with me and dismissed most of my concerns and when I went to the hospital for the induction (because I was passed my due date-something I know now is not evidence based), I felt like cattle just being poked and prodded with no concern for my wellbeing. It was such a profoundly different experience the second time with Jennifer's support- I went into labor feeling like I COULD do this, I WOULD do this and I came out of the experience feeling like a powerful and competent person. It was literally life changing. I can't recommend Jennifer enough, she is a wealth of knowledge for all things pre-conception, nutrition, health, and of course an unbelievably amazing midwife. We love her to the moon and back.

About me

I'm a midwife, health coach, compassionate listener, problem solver (I am also an engineer), rescue animal lover, outdoor adventurer and people person that would love to get to know you!

My Philosophy of Care

I spent years of my life diligently following conventional health advice yet continually becoming sicker and more obese. The vicious cycle of thinking one new 'thing' would work, the self defeat when it didn't (despite absolute adherence to the diet/exercise/medication/advice) and the disdain from professionals that blamed me all led me to read & research more. The more I researched, it became clear that we've known for decades these conventional health and weight loss modalities are wrong and don't improve health. Slowly I implemented changes in my life that had positive impacts - leading me to learn and grow more. Eventually I transitioned far away from the low fat/high chemical life I'd been prescribed for +30 years into a more holistic lifestyle and finally decided to offer those years of learning and growth to others. I left a highly stressful and competitive job, attended midwifery school and eventually certified as a primal health coach to help my midwifery clients navigate the increased body demands of conception, pregnancy, postpartum and parenthood. Hopefully my journey of growth and change can inspire others to make some painless changes that benefit their long term health!

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Supportive and inspiring environment to discuss your individual needs, goals, desires and lifestyle.

My Inspiration

I am inspired every day by the people around me; the ones who encouraged me to look outside the box for why conventional medical advice wasn't working and the ones who support us truth seekers at every turn.
