Brittany Holmes

We loved our time and experience with Jessica! She became our doula just a month before our son came. Jessica invested a lot of time in us; helping us navigate and nail down our birth plans, being a great source of knowledge and support, and being flexible with us in the craziness of the last few weeks before I gave birth. She was with us every step of the way during the birth; staying up all hours of the night, calming my new mama nerves, and helping me through the ups and downs of birth and contractions. She knew when to hang back and let things happen but also when to be a calming presence.

We ended up having to transfer (we were planning on a homebirth) due to me being a first time mama and not progressing in the time frame I needed to. Jess was with us through it all ( a good chunk of the 33 1/2 hour labor I had with our son).

We love her bunches and were so thankful for the huge part she played in being our doula.

Jessica was very understanding and caring from fhe begining. She taught me many things about oils and ways to be more comfortable during my pregnancy. She worked around our crazy schedule very well and she put together an amazing blessing way that couldnt have gone better. She helped me through many false labors and weeks of contractions. She was there right when i needed her for our birth and stayed the LONG 2 days we were in labor. If it wasnt for jessica i truley dont think i would have acheieved my VBA2C. if i ever have another child, jessica will be right there as i couldnt have asked for better support. And the pictures she took are amazing!!
