Hi! My name is 

jodi congdon

The Heart and Soul behind Hip to Heart.

My journey into the world of pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding began with my own empowering experiences of giving birth, including welcoming two of my daughters right at home in the Boston area where I live with my husband, our three incredible daughters, two cats, and a dog.

Driven by a passion for learning and excellence in the perinatal field, I am a certified Postpartum Doula and Lactation Educator.  My commitment to elevating birth and postpartum care led me to become a member of the CAPPA Faculty, where I proudly serve as the Postpartum Doula and Lactation Educator Trainer for New England.

With the growing demand for knowledgeable and compassionate doula support, I evolved my practice into an agency model, enabling us to offer unparalleled care during and after pregnancy. This expansion was more than a just business decision; it was a response to a calling to make a real difference.

Beyond my work with families, I am deeply invested in nurturing the doula community. I've taken my experiences of founding and growing a successful birth and postpartum doula agency and translated them into actionable strategies for other doulas. Through in person trainings and digital courses, I aim to empower birth professionals to not only excel in their care but also to thrive in their businesses. I have made it my mission to foster a supportive, knowledgeable, and sustainable doula community that stands strong in both passion and profitability.
