Post a testimonial for Jessica Faulkner CD/PCD(DONA)



As a first time mom and type A personality I really wanted to hire a doula to ground my partner and I. Jessica is very intuitive and kind! She answered all our questions and looked further into the ones she wasn't sure on. We decided to go with cord blood banking and when our original company choice fell through she went above and beyond to find us a reputable backup company a week before my due date!!! I don't think I could've went through labor without Jessica's comfort techniques. She is very hands on and directed my partner very well to help relieve pain during labor. She's great at keeping an open line of communication and is always prompt to respond. My partner really appreciated her patience in communicating things to him through my labor. Jessica follows her intuition while respecting your birth plan! Would definitely recommend her to any mom but especially first time moms to help ease your worries and boost your confidence. She's one of the best advocates you could have in the delivery room and during pregnancy. 



We had a wonderful experience with Jessica as our Postpartum Doula in May 2023. Our birth doula was not available for overnight visits so the second day after giving birth, my husband reached out to Jessica and she offered to help us the next night! She came 4 different nights in the first few weeks to give us a couple of hours of consolidated sleep, which was a game changer. Even when the baby needed to nurse, she was a supportive, calming presence and a nice person to chat with in the middle of the night. You and your family would be in good hands with Jessica!

Jessica was great to work with as first time parents. As a dad she gave me the confidence to support my wife during the process. She taught me comforting techniques that allowed me to support my wife in a completely natural child birth. She was supportive and hands on without taking away the experience for myself. She was 10/10 and I recommend her.
