Client Testimonials for Jen Hoch

Jessica Tucker

Jen is amazing! My son really likes her and my little baby girl who is incredibly clingy took to Jen right away. I often would come downstairs and my little lady would be napping on Jen. 

She not only helped me with the kids so I can have time to myself but also helped with laundry, dishes, meal prep and listened. She would take her initiative so I didn’t have to ask her to do those things. She’s easy to talk to and if there’s something different you want done then there’s no issue. 

I found her incredibly professional and incredibly relatable. 

For me it‘s important to have someone I trust and my kids trust and Jen is definitely a trustworthy doula. I highly recommend her.

Jen does a ton. Just having a baby-holder and diaper changer for the newborn was so helpful, and she was really great with our toddler. She would play with the toddler so I could get time with the baby, and would get the toddler lunch and put her down and get her up from naps. That gave me a chance to nap with the newborn and get some rest. Or she’d deal with the newborn for a few hours while I slept or dealt with the toddler. On top of all that, she’d get all the dishes done, do a few loads of laundry, take out the garbage, tidy up the toys. Our house always looks awesome when Jen has been over. Jen is also great to talk to about all of the frustrating parts of having kids. Lots of emotional support. Help at appointments.

So happy with Jen. The best part of having Jen is that she predicts what you need! You turn around and the toys are clean and the laundry is done and put away.

She’s a nice, normal person. She isn’t judgey. Easy to talk to, or not talk to. Great with the kids. Shows up on time. Reliable. Easy to get in touch with. Honestly, nothing for criticism. I love the days when she comes over!
