“My birth would not have been as amazing as it was without her there. I am very very grateful.”
My ideal home birth turned into a rough hospital Birth and Jessica was there with me, supporting me every step of the way. She helped me to keep calm and collected in times where I thought I couldn't make it.
"My birth doula was caring, committed, and well educated even with me having a unique birth experience. I could not have asked for a better birth doula."
"Jessica is the reason I attribute my success to breastfeeding. I had 2 prior deliveries that were miserable, so I had a lot of apprehension and anxiety with my induction with my 4th child. Her presence there was so comforting and reassuring I was able to absolve all my worries and completely focus on myself. I have a tendency to take on worries and a mental load worried about others. She made sure I was focused on myself. It was so comforting to have someone so empathetic take care of me when I needed it most. Because of her, this birth was my most pleasant one. I also believe because of the pleasant birth experience, I have not developed post partum depression as I did after my other deliveries. She was my defender, sticking up for me when my resolve would waver. She was a masseuse when my back was racked with contractions. She was my lactation consultant when I was having a difficult time getting those first few latches. I will be entirely indebted for her presence at what was the best birth I've had to date. Thank you."
"I had an advocate for me, that I felt cared about me and not anything else. I had a cheerleader and a friend to talk to while I was starting to become frustrated waiting for the delivery.”
