Jessica is compassionate and caring throughout pregnancy. She leads informative classes which help prepare first time parents for the labor, delivery, and the newborn days to come. During my labor, she was right at my side coaching me through every moment. Jessica was always happy to answer my many text message questions as the day approached, and gladly followed up after the birth as well. I would wholeheartedly recommend her services (and her friendship which comes as a free bonus)!
Jessica was everything I needed and more. She was prompt with responses to questions and willing to work with me through any decisions I made during labor. We had an interview before to discuss expectations on both ends, which I highly recommend! She was an active support for me even and my husband, even though I ended up getting an epidural. If I ever have another baby, I will have Jess as my doula. I tell friends frequently to reach out to her. If I thought I knew what my body needed Jess always had a suggestion that was so much better!
From the beginning, Jessica was so welcoming. I could tell she was passionate about her work and the families she cared for. My partner and I always knew she had our best interest at heart and she was always eager to answer any and all questions we had. She's so knowledgeable too! I'm happy to have stayed connected to her after our childbirth class came to a close.
Jessica was my Doula with my daughter, she was even born on Jessica's son's birthday and she was still there by my side while I went through labour and delivery. I am very glad I had her and would HIGHLY recommend her to any mom looking for a Doula. In my family we refer to her as the baby guru she's smart kind and non judgemental . When I was exhausted and ready to give up she was patient and encouraging and kept me going.
Jessica was very helpful in her class. I feel like my wife and I were prepared for the birthing process that everything was a breeze. The information covered in class was spot on the experience we had at the birthing center. I would high recommend Jessica to any couple wanting help or information about the birth process.
Jess was a beautiful mashup of authenticity, professionalism, humor, and reality. She worked respectfully along side our OB. She helped me find my ability to live outside my own fears, and watched me smile as I gave birth. She's one of the most determined, gifted, and loving women I know and I'm lucky to have her in my tribe.
