Client Testimonials for Jessy Bready

Jessy was a special part of the birth of our baby boy in and out of the hospital. Before the big day she spent time to get to know us and answer any questions we had. She calmed our fears with her up beat personality and friendly nature. Any questions we had she provided us with great information or went out of her way to find the answers for us.

On the evening of the birth, she was a wonderful advocate for us in the hospital by interacting with the hospital staff when we were pre-occupied and made sure our birth plan was respected, which allowed us to enjoy the experience. She also provided many soothing techniques to try actively and passively during labor such as different positions, massage, essential oils, lighting, and breathing techniques. Amidst the often chaotic moments in the hospital, she was a calming familiar force which greatly helped guide us through the whole experience. After we returned home from the hospital, she visited us as well to check in on how we were doing and lend a hand.

We would highly recommend Jessy as a doula. She was a wonderful presence and help to our family and we couldn't have done it without her.

I had the pleasure of having Jessy as my doula for the last trimester of my pregnancy, the birth and some time thereafter. I must say right away Jessy makes you feel completely comfortable. She's bubbly and uplifting. Jessy is so caring, she comes of like a sister and best friend. She completely empowers you, anything you want to accomplish Jessy is right there aiding and cheering you on. She made me feel like a goddess and her prenatal massages were amazing! She specializes in all natural oils and remedies, I received the most wonderful smelling belly balm that I now swear by to help with stretch marks! I ended up with a c-section so Jessy held my hand as things got started and then assisted my partner in taking pictures to capture the moment. She was such a bright light and extraordinary motivation. Afterwards Jessy was always just a phone call away, she was wonderful with my postpartum needs and concerns. I was so lucky to have her, anyone would, she is truly a beautiful soul.
