Brianna Vaughns

Jessica did an amazing job encapsulating my placenta. I went into labor and without much notice Jessica was at the hospital to properly transport my placenta for the encapsulation and tincture. Jessica is very kind and sweet. Jessica was very professional and was very polite. I wish I had known about her services for the birth of my now 16 month old as I would have hired her to care for my placenta at that time as well. I know exactly who to call and refer family and friends to in the future for both Doula and placenta encapsulation services. Thanks again Jessica!

I had a wonderful birth experience with Jessica as my doula. Jessica was there all the way with guidance, support and assuring me that my body is capable. She’s very patient, calm, and sincere. I would highly recommend her, she’s great.

Jessica is truly a gem. She was a great support system during my pregnancy and put my mind at ease whenever I experienced different symptoms I wasn't familiar with. She made sure that I was comfortable during my labor/delivery and that my room was a calming environment. Post-natal she supported my breast feeding efforts and educated me on different feeding positions as well as tools to make the experience easier. All in all she was a wonderful support system and I look forward to utilizing her services in the future.
