My husband and I worked with Jessica as a Postpartum Doula following the births of both of our children. Jessica was able to give our family the gift of rest! Knowing that she was coming for the night to care for our newborn so I could sleep and recharge was wonderful. I know being well rested made me a better mother and better able to care for our children. We also relied on her amazing knowledge of newborn care with our firstborn. Jessica gave us suggestions to help manage our son’s health issues and make him more comfortable. The tips and advice she offered were amazing. Jessica was a wonderfully calm presence in our home, and she was always prompt and attentive to the needs of our family. I wouldn't have gotten through being a first time mother without her!
