Doula Jen is one of the administrators of the breastfeeding online support group, Breastfeeding Pinays. Experiencing the benefits of breastfeeding for her own child and herself, she decided to be a breastfeeding advocate and trained as a breastfeeding peer counselor under Arugaan.
She is a seasoned counselor having assisted in numerous breastfeeding support sessions on a regular basis. She has recently attended the 11th One Asia Breastfeeding Partners Forum held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In this forum, Doula Jen further realized how birth greatly affects breastfeeding success.
