Jill is much more than a Doula, she is a friend, supporter, care-giver, coach and a PRO at what she does. She says this profession is her passion which was more than evident. From the moment we met her, we immediately loved her and felt very comfortable around her. She explained her services in detail and set down with us at length to answer any questions during our first in person meeting. We knew instantly that she was meant to be our Doula. In the weeks leading up to our daughter's birth, Jill checked in with us on a regular basis to see how we were doing. The prenatal appointments were fun and informative and Jill took her time guiding and supporting us. She helped us write our birth plan, helped prepare the hospital bag, told us in detail what to expect during our hospital stay and what her role would be. She went above & beyond by stopping by one day to bring a delicious home-made chicken soup when I was under the weather as well as to give me an ankle/foot massage to help the labor process when I was past my due date. And when labor started, she was at our home in no time and never left our side until after our baby girl was born (a day later!). I was experiencing very strong and painful back to back contractions and Jill massaged me through each contraction using counter pressure which definitely helped ease the pain. She was relentless, never leaving my side (aside from very quick breaks), held my hand, asked my husband what he needed and reminded him to drink water, continually asked me if I was OK, reassuring me that I was doing great and boy let me tell you, I don't know what I would have done without her....she was an angel and a rock throughout! We are so thankful for Jill and grateful that she was recommended to us. Please, if you've read this (lengthy) review, do not look any further. I guarantee you will be as happy and thankful for selecting Jill as your Doula as we were. A terrific Doula and all around amazing person.
Jill provided amazing support for my wife and I prior to the birth, during the birth and after. We choose Jill because we felt so comfortable with her energy and vibe. Jill is down to earth, honest, and is a great resource of knowledge. My wife labored for several days and Jill was there every step of the way helping to relax my wife and providing support. I highly recomend Jill and our family will absoltely be calling her in the future. We feel so lucky to have had Jill be part of birth team.
I am so gratefull that I met with the wonderfull woman Jill. Thanks to her I had a great birth experience. Jill's positive and high energy, lovely smile, and soft hands are priceless. Her touch is so soft, that u feel on the clouds. She massaged me trough the night, thanks to her I got over the contrations easily. Also she established a great relation with the nurses in the hospital which helped a lot. She is the one, I definetly recommend her.
Jill, it is an understatement to say that our birth experience would not have been the best that it could have been if you weren't with us. You were a guiding light that gave so much; comfort, strength, kindness, positivity, laughter, and sincere companionship.
We met at a Doula traing class, and if all that comes of my training is the chance to have met you, it was worth it. Our new little family is complete with our twin girls but if we were to have more, we'd ask you to be our Doula every time.
You are a gift to the birthing community.
Thank you for loving what you do and thank you for having been our Doula.
We love you! XOXO

Jill was absolutely critical in us having a good birth experience. She was extremely flexible and was willing to adjust on the fly as our daughter was initially going to be induced but then came naturally, late at night.
She helped my wife with a bunch of comfort measures, helped coach me on things that I could do to help while my wife was in pain, and was key in making sure we knew all of what was going on was normal and expected.
Once we went to the hospital it was really helpful to have her coaching us, bringing her bag of comfort tools, and making sure my wife was able to move around and have the delivery that she wanted. She was also a strong advocate for us during the process, making sure that we were informed about what was going on, that I was keeping myself hydrated and fed, and that my wife's voice and preferences were heard.
We would recommend her without question.
Back in 2010 and before Jill became a Doula she was there for me when I had my 2nd child, she helped me with my extreme anxiety that I was having right after having my 2nd child. She made sure we were alright, helped calm me down, and called to check on me and the baby to see if we needed anything. Even though she wasn't considered a Doula yet you could tell where her passion was in helping the process of mom and baby bonding and giving them the feeling they aren't alone in this process. I always have appreciated her support. Thanks, Jill Magoffin!
Jill was one of very few people I would ever feel comfortable with during one of the most vulnerable times in my life - childbirth. She was present for the birth of 2 of my children. Her positive energy is always uplifting, especially after several hours of waiting and waiting. If I ever did it again, Jill would be the first person I would call to help me get through labor again.
jill is tied with my husband for the most important person to have with me in the delivery room. She was so helpful, understanding, patient, and wonderful. She walked with me, got me food, demanded more heat packs, made me laugh, and helped my husband after my little sweet angel was born. You can say anything to Jill, she will never judge you. Anyone would be lucky to have Jill as a doula, and I can guarantee that you will start with her as a doula but leave with her as a friend. Oh- and Jill I'm still sorry I cursed at you during my labor, I didn't mean it...well I meant it at the time, but not anymore.
