Client Testimonials for Jessica Stafford

Post a testimonial for Jessica Stafford

Andrea Kempf


Jes was our labor doula for our daughter that was born in December. It has taken me a bit to gather my thoughts and process my birth and I am so excited to say that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Jes! She is incredible at what she does. She is so gentle, kind, reassuring, patient, knowledgeable, genuine…I could keep going. I felt SO safe in my birth space with Jes by my side coaching and encouraging me every step of the way! I’ll forever be grateful for the amazing support Jes provided that created such a safe space with my birth!!?? We love you Jes??



Jessica was willing to take me on fairly last minute at 36 weeks (I was procrastinating).  I had a doula with my 3rd and 4th children and really appreciated the difference doula support made in my labors and was thankful for her during my 5th. 

She provided a wealth of information about birth, preparing for birth and post partum.

She was also great about helping me talk through and prepare for worst case weather scenarios which helped me stay calm during two blizzards within 2 weeks of my due date. 

I appreciated her knowledge and expertise at the hospital, helping me find comfortable positions to labor in, and providing encouragement!

It is a pleasure for me to write a testimonial for Jessica Stafford. From the  moment of our first meeting, I connected with her right away, and I knew that she was the doula for me. She was passionate, knowledgeable and non-judgmental, and supportive.

When I shared my birth plan with Jessica, she was passionate about making my birth experience a positive one, and offered excellent support. She asked me questions to insure she knew exactly what I did and did not want.

As different decisions came my way, Jessica was available with information and resources to help me make the best decision for my family. I felt confident in her knowledge as I was faced with different decisions. She offered non-judgmental advice and options, and she was very concerned about empowering us to make the choice we wanted to make.

When my birth plans had to be abandoned because of last minute complications, she was ready and available to support me. She was positive and encouraging, and I couldn't have done my long, unmedicated labor without her. My husband and I greatly appreciated how she helped us.

I defintely recommend Jessica. She has a passion for helping women achieve a positive birth experience, the knowledge to help them make informed decisions, and the encouraging attitude to support them through the birth experience.

Jessica is a very capable doula; although I'm a nervous nellie type of mom, I never worried about my baby (and kids) in her care.  She has a very kind and pleasant presence that is easy to be around.  She has a good attitude and is willing to perform any duty that is asked without pushback or judgment.



I can't say enough good things about Jess as a person and as a doula! I hired her during my second pregnancy, primarily because of the issues I'd encountered during my first delivery. I'd felt uneducated (despite all of the classes I'd taken!) and felt like I'd have benefited from having someone to help me advocate for myself. Jess's knowledge and calm demeanor helped me immensely both during my pregnancy and during delivery! Her active listening skills are amazing and she was able to help me craft a birth plan that helped ease my anxiety and left me feeling confident going into delivery. Although the VBAC I'd been hoping for wasn't in the cards, Jess was there the morning of my c-section (even battling the late-March 10 inch snowstorm!) to help me feel comfortable and ask the right questions of my doctor and anesthesiologist. She even wished me a happy birthing day when my baby turned one last March ?? I would 110% hire Jess again!!

So, my experience is actually from a few years ago.  I remember my experience with Jessica like it was yesterday.  She was so kind.  She came in and, honestly, it felt like a close friend coming to visit.  We chatted while she worked with my placenta and it seemed like friends just catching up with each other.  
Not only did she encapsulate my placenta, she also made a tincture and a beautiful placenta print (2 actually!).  She shaped my baby's umbilical cord into a precious keepsake for me (something I had not thought about doing).  
She was very clear with instructions and made sure I understood everything that she was doing and what I needed to do after she was gone (shaking the tincture, storage of pills and tincture, etc).  
I highly recommend Jessica for all of these services that I received.  Such a sweet, sweet woman.  Oh, and she was willing to work around 4 other young kids and all the noise and chaos they bring.  I felt no judgement for not having a clean house.  Jessica is not only professional, she is personable.  I appreciate all she did for me (and my family).

I highly recommend Jes! She is so passionate about her work. Jes supported me through out my labor with hands on techniques that reduced my level of discomfort. In addition to being extremely hands on, she used many other techniques to keep me relaxed and calm! I could go on and on about how great she is, but I will leave it at the fact that we were incredibly blessed to have her supporting the birth of my daughter.
