Mackenzie Thompson

Jackie came by for a postpartum visit with me. I was having a lot of difficultly with my baby as he was extremely fussy and sleeping terribly. He was born premature, and the struggle with his health, and my healing both mentally and physically was taking its toll. Jackie was extremely helpful with ideas and resources for me. She was great with my son and was very knowledgable, kind and professional! Thank you Jackie!

We knew we wanted a doula but little did we know we needed one! Every step from prenatal classes, labour support to your home visits all were a blessing? . We have so much knowledge and confidence thanks to you. The doula that keeps on giving, even after all said and done I still feel so comfortable. I value you so much as a person, doula and friend moving forward. Thank you again so much Jackie! Until the next baby??
