Client Testimonials for Jennifer Gunty

Vanessa Carlson

Jennifer was my birth and post partum doula for the birth of my second daughter in January. In the months leading up to the birth, Jennifer and I were in touch constantly. She was always willing to answer a frantic text with my new random worry, no matter what time it was. My birth plan changed probably 10 times during the course of my pregnancy, and she rolled with the punches, happy and willing to support me in whatever course I chose.

I ended up needing a C-section 3 weeks before my daughter was due. Jennifer walked me through start to finish. She was literally at the hospital within 10 minutes of my own check-in and didnt leave until I felt I was ready for her to. When I was in pre-op, she came back and sat with me and calmed my nerves. Her presence was what I can only describe as gentle and assuring. She gave me confidence that I would get through this, which is EXACTLY what I needed in the face of such a scary experience. She was just an extention of my family that day. 

After my c-section, my daughter had to be taken to NICU. Jennifer was waiting for me in my post partum room, and immediately helped me get set up with a pumping regimin since I was unable to nurse. Hospital policy forced me to stay in bed for several hours before I was allowed to go to see my baby in NICU, and Jennifer stayed with me the entire time. She anticipated my every need and literally held my hand when I was overwhelmed. She only left the hospital when I felt I was ready for her to go. 

In the days that followed the birth, she was just a short phone call or text away at any question I had and was always willing to get me anything I need, whether it be someone to cry to or a fresh coffee in my hand. 

Im so grateful to have had such a sweet and self-assured doula! She never made me feel like a "client" - she made me feel like a cherished friend, which is how I view her still. Thank you Jennifer! You were truly a gift!
