Jessica was great to work with. We texted her when we were headed to the hospital and once baby was born she was there in no time to pick up the placenta. She had it encapsulated a few days later, perfect timing for when we got home. I recommend the services to new or experienced mommies! This was my third child but first time doing the capsules and I could tell it really helped with the baby blues. While I still had some meltdowns, it really did help to balance out my hormones and this is also the best milk production I have had.

With my 1st born son I did not get my placenta encapsulated and I totally regret it. I have anxiety and depression as is and my PP depression was horrible! When I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd there was no doubt in my mind about encapsulatin. I was recommended Jessica by a friend of mine after looking at other places and her bubbly personality made it an easy choice! My son ended up making his appearance a week early from my planned c-section and Jessica came and picked up my placenta fast and delivered it to my house a few days later. I've been taking my pills daily since I recieved them and I love them! i feel like I've healed so much better and faster physically and mentally. My blues only lasted around 2 weeks and faded fast. they have helped my milk supply as well! I had many issues with my first and didn't with my second with breastfeeding and I really think it's from taking my pills. 

 

 if you have any thought into getting your placenta encapsulate, DO IT!

you will love Jessica and everything she does!

Jess was such a huge help to us. I was monitored at the end of pregnancy weekly if not more and she always had us keep her posted and provided encouragement. When we finally told her we were heading to the hospital, she was there not long after us, helping with coping techniques, a sip of water, or whatever was needed. We ended up being in labor nearly 24 hours followed by a c-section after some health concerns and Jess was there every step of the way. We are so grateful she could be our doula and help us welcome our baby boy. She kept us calm, focused, and as rested as possible. Would absolutely recommend her if you are looking for a steady, gentle, and caring helper for any birth or other doula service.

My experience with Jessica was incredible. She was a wonderful advocate and birth partner. She listened to my wishes and together we put a great birth plan. there aren't enough words to describe my experience. Being a first time mother I did not know what to expect. She helped me through my birth even when things didn't go as we had planned. She was an advocate when I was unable to speak for myself. Jessica went above and beyond to care for me and my husband during and after birth. She answered all of our questions. She allowed my husband to take a break when the birth became too much for him. She came to the house and watched our little one while I took a nap and she did some light house work while I was sleeping. I would recommend Jessica to any of my friends and I am forever grateful for having a doula during my birth and lucky enough for it to be Jess.
