Jeanne Hauguel and Brooke Dempsey
Jeanne Hauguel is a birth and postnatal doula and childbirth educator in Hong Kong. She is the mother of two sons, born in 2009 and 2011 in Hong Kong. During her own pregnancies, Jeanne became fascinated by the process of birth and inspired by the capabilities of women’s bodies. After the birth of her second son, she decided to train to become a doula. Having been away from her mother and friends during her own pregnancies, births and postnatal periods, Jeanne feels strongly about being there for others when they embark on the journey of parenthood.
Jeanne is a certified birth and postpartum doula, a certified waterbirth doula and a certified childbirth educator. She is currently continuing her education to become a certified breastfeeding counselor and is in the certification process with Hypnobabies. Jeanne’s languages are French and English.
Brooke Dempsey is a mother of two, childbirth educator and doula in Hong Kong. A former airline pilot in her native Canada, she followed her husband to Hong Kong in 2008, shortly after the birth of her daughter. She is currently a student midwife and hopes to make a positive impact on the birth culture in Hong Kong before eventually moving back to Canada.
