My first birth was an emergency cesarean and I wanted to try for a VBAC for my second, which is why I sought out a doula. When I met Jade I felt a sense of peace. I’m not sure how else to describe how I knew she was the best match for us except that I felt calm and safe in her presence. I assumed a doula was primarily meant to provide comfort measures during labor and be an advocate and educator, but Jade was so much more than that. In fact, my labor was so quick (5 hours from first contraction to the birth) that we really only spent 1 hour together during my labor. I truly believe it was the prep work we had done throughout my pregnancy that resulted in that speedy of a labor. The education and resources she provided made my husband and I feel knowledgeable, empowered, and prepared. She also made sure I was prepared for the postpartum period. She suggested I prep meals to freeze and sent me invites to free events in the valley that set me up for success. 

I had the most beautiful, unmedicated birth and attribute so much of my success to her. She made me feel confident and I learned to trust my body. My husband was so skeptical to hire a doula, but now he will tell you he is so fortunate we had Jade by our side throughout this journey. We would hire her all over again and are forever grateful she was a part of our birth!

I had a successful natural VBAC at a birth center with Jade as one of my doulas. Someone asked me what my favorite part of my birth story was and I replied “Jade!” She showed up with a warm smile and rubbed my back in early labor and I was overwhelmingly reassured by her energy that everything was going to be alright. Jade was extremely hands on, moving my legs and body into different positions, applying pressure to my low back and hips, doing massage and pressure points, all helping me to cope with the pain and move baby down. Jade is very strong (physically) and held me for hours in a supported standing position through my contractions. Jade spoke positive affirmations and words of encouragement  about my body, my baby, and my strength all throughout the labor. She was with me every minute and I felt extremely supported. It was an honor and privilege to have Jade help bring my baby earth side! Jade also followed up with multiple postpartum visits to me and baby. I can’t imagine having a future birth without her!

Jade was the doula for our first child's birth. It was a wonderful experience having her with us. Jade is a great person. She is very positive person and it was really nice having her energy during the labor. She suggested a number of different body positions that really helped move the labor along. She is a kind and very knowledgable person. I recommend her highly.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jade for the birth of our daughter.  We were first time parents, and having her support through a long hospital labor made all the difference with the outcome of our birth.  Our birth vision had changed from a birthing center to hospital setting, and Jade helped us feel empowered during a stressful situation.  We ended up having a beautiful natural birth.  My husband was my birthing coach, and found working with Jade very easy and a wonderful compliment to our birthing team.  Jade genuinely cares about her clients, and listens to their wishes and feelings helping parents feel strong and capable.  We feel blessed to have met Jade, and have her part of our birth.  She came prepared to the hospital with tranforming our sterile hospital room into a cozy home-like environment using tea candles, and calming essential oils with soothing music.  Jade was insightful at helping me switch positions when needed, in addition to being flexible and helping both me and my husband throughout our long journey of laboring.  If we have a second baby, we already know we want Jade there by our side.  She is a kindred spirit, lovely woman, and provided us the emotional, physical, and mental support we both needed to have a successful natural birth.  On top of it, she also took pictures throughout the labor for keepsake memories.  She wanted to remind me of how strong I was during our labor, and I felt so empowered looking at what I had overcome and honoring my personal commitments I had made to my daughter.  Every family expecting a baby needs to experinece having a doula, as they are the most meaningful person that can guide you during a life changing moment.  Jade, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!   We are so lucky to have you participate in our birth!!!

My pregnancy and delivery were already being considered high risk because I was 39 years old and was planning on having a VBAC. I didn’t know a lot about doulas and just how beneficial they are to both mom and dad to be. I reached out to Jade (my son's schoolmates mom) to see if she could recommend a midwife, doctor or just had any help for me. She immediately started making calls and doing everything she could to calm me down. I remember her telling me that regardless of my situation, she would be happy to come and just massage my feet and back during my labor. I thought that was sweet but had no intention of taking her up on her offer. Somewhere along the way we decided that she HAD to be my doula and there was no way I wanted to do this without her. That day a beautiful friendship and partnership was born.  Fast forward to go time; we were off! Jade showed up at my house so she could help my husband get me to the hospital and from that moment on we were all in great hands, literally. She was on point and aware of everything the entire time. She helped not only me, but my husband, remain calm. She coached him on to how to coach me which took the thinking away for him so he could just be in the moment with me. Jade knew exactly when I would get scared or be in “just too much” pain and would immediately lock eyes with me and get me back to neutral.  Her massage and oil blends were perfect. They kept me calm and relaxed almost my entire labor and delivery.  Jade knew exactly how and when to intervene, when to let my husband be my focal point and when to step away to let the two, and then three of us, just be.  I know, without a doubt in my mind that without her by my side for not only my labor and delivery but for those last 11 weeks, I would not have had my perfect delivery.  Jade will far exceed your expectations and make this an experience that you and/or both you and your partner will not want to forget.

Miss Jade is the best thing that happened to me during my pregnancy. I wasn't aware that I needed a Doula when I got asked if I will have one. After a recommendation and an interview with her I knew it was exactly the kind of support and knowledge I need to do my planned natural birth. Jade is personable, hands on, knowledgeable and cares deeply and passionately for her clients. She will make you feel like you and your baby are the number one thing in this world she cares about. She is full of resources and if she isn't sure about something she will do her research before giving you a solid answer. I love everything about this as this is how I think and believe it should be. I don't know how I would have done in my labor and birth if it wasn't for her. When I felt like I was going to lose it during the roughest part of contractions she was able to bring me back in and focus on my breathing and the baby. Birthing my son is definitely the most beautiful and empowering thing I have ever done in my life and I am so glad I had Jade there with us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! ? ♥?
