I am super excited to feature midwife Jennee Allan and her gorgeous birth suite, Eagle Mountain Midwife. Jennee is a super sweet soul and I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting her this year. She is so good at what she does and her birth suite is just stunning! So much light, beautiful colors and a wonderful feeling there. So, without further ado, here is her feature, along with some yummy images of her suite and her team!
Please tell me about yourself:
Hi, my name is Jennee and I’m a home birth Midwife DEM. I had all seven of my birth children at home. 17 years ago I gave birth to my oldest and have been a birth junkie since. I did self study and followed incredible midwives until the time came to practice on my own. I consider myself an intuit and feel that we never stop learning. I have seven birth kids ranging in age from one to seventeen. I have adopted 3 girls and have four more girls who we will be adopting soon. I have an amazing supportive husband who became an EMT just so he could help me in my practice. He is a prior military helicopter pilot, a hypnotist and self proclaimed birth junkie himself. I love telling him all about the births and he loves it too:)
I am busy, but am organized and give focus to the people who need it. I love my heavenly father and know I am blessed to be called to this position.

Enjoy the following testimonials from past clients of Jennee:
“We had a great experience working with Jennee! Less than a year ago she delivered our 7th baby and it was the best birth ever! Jennee proved to be a highly trained, compassionate professional who wasn’t afraid to listen to my concerns and her own intuition. She served our whole family, not just me and our new baby (including making her special chicken soup). Jennee has worked with many of the local midwives over the last few years, and incorporated a blend of the best techniques and methods from all of them. I loved the order and calm she brought to my birth, and how she stayed focused on my needs, despite the fact that she was almost 9 months pregnant herself at the time! I am so excited that she plans to continue to bless our community with her unique skills and talents. She is a great woman, a dear friend, and an exceptional midwife.” ~Loretta Chase
