Frustrated by the lack of community support available in the 1970s, she helped co-found Postpartum Education for Parents (PEP) to ensure support for herself and others. In 1987 she founded Postpartum Support International (PSI) to represent self-help/support groups worldwide working to prevent the negative emotional reactions to childbearing. Both she and PSI empower and encourage interested individuals to create new support groups, as well as support existing ones. Jane continues her work today, increasing the resources and contacts available to women, their partners, families and friends.
