Jesse is an amazing teacher! It was an honor to learn from her and receive her knowledge. Her years of being a doula has given her insight to help supply us with wisdom in our journey in becoming Doulas. She is an amazing mentor and set me up to be a successful Doula. I appreciate every aspect of her guidance I have have received. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

Mother Tree doula training is the absolute best. Jesse Remer is an amazing instructor who exudes warmth and wisdom. She has created more than just a class – it is an experience. I have taken both the birth and postpartum in-person trainings and both times I have walked away with a wealth of knowledge and a full heart after 3-4 beautiful days of learning and connection. I also just love the cozy yurt and the surrounding farm. I highly recommend Jesse Remer and Mother Tree!
