Having a doula for the delivery of our first child was one of our first parenting decisions we made. I think I was about 11 weeks pregnant when I started reaching out to Doula's. Jill was the first doula I met with who really clicked with both myself and my husband. She is warm and friendly and felt like someone I could trust and immediately open up to but also is extremely educated and was able to joke around with my husband so he felt like he could trust her opinion through any challenges we may face and speak frankly with her without offending. We do not have any family in California, but Jill made it feel like we did. She went above and beyond to help us have the birth we wanted, even in a pandemic. We labored at home together as a team for the majority of my labor and she helped instill confidence into my husband for the part at the hospital that she was unable to attend due to COVID. She knows just what to do to get you through to the next contraction, whether it's a laugh, counter pressure, a walk, she just gets it. Having Jill as our doula was one of the best decisions we made for our birth process. We love you Jill <3

Jill helped us with our twins after they were born.  Extremely knowledgeable and kind, the boys loved her and you could tell she loved them.

Jill was always on time and always communicated in a clear and consise manner for those who are new to parenting.

We'd highly recommend!

I was lucky enough to be gifted Jill's postpartum services by my siblings. It was the most thoughtful and useful gift and I was so incredibly moved by it. Jill came into my home and immediately made me feel at ease and taken care of. She offered really helpful guidance when warranted but also encouraged me to trust my instinct and helped me figure out what worked best for me and my baby. She is all about honoring the family and the baby and helping them find their way. She is also basically the baby whisperer. While calming my baby, she taught me how to properly implement pace feeding, swaddling, shushing, rocking, and helped me find the right combination to put my little guy to sleep (even when he really really didn't want to). 

Jill is incredibly generous with her time and has kindly taken my questions in between visits and helped me feel safe and find solutions for whichever curve ball (or sleep regression) my little guy threw me. She is patient, kind, funny, generous, and easy to be around. I tend to have an anxious and perfecitonistic personality type and it has been so incredibly comforting to have Jill by my side. 

I think what I appreciate the most about Jill is the way she honors me and my relationship with my son. She never makes me feel bad or judged but instead validates my experience and really curates her responses and services based on our specific needs. 

We are so grateful to Jill and we feel so lucky to have her as an integral part of our fourth trimester.

Jill was awesome. She was professional.  She arrived on time (even early) for her night shift.  She communicated well and kept clear records.  She was flexible and took everything in stride.  She was a pleasure to have around and you could tell that she was passionate about what she does and her love of newborns.

Jill was recommended to us as a friend of a friend, and from the moment we spoke on the phone I knew she was the ONE. That feeling was further confirmed when my husband and I had the privilege of meeting with her in person- she had to be our doula! But none of us could have imagined then that that would be our only in-person meeting as CA ordered us all to shelter in place not long after, and also found out that Jill wouldn't be allowed to accompany us during labor. Jill is such a gem and put our minds and hearts at ease by staying in constant contact with us throughout the end of my pregnancy, answering any questions and providing support through facetime and over text. She's kind, generous, down to earth, and feels like family (which was so meaningful to us). From being pregnant during the intensity (an understatement) of a global pandemic to a difficult labor (unsuccessful induction for 3 days and unplanned c-section) and hard recovery (breastfeeding is no joke), Jill was there every part of the way to lend an ear and offer advice and suggest resources. We will forever be grateful to her.

JIll was amazing,  like a friend you've known forever.  She's real and genuine and has a true passion to help you with your birthing process.  I didn't think we needed a doula until I experienced Jill.  This isn't just a job for her.  She really cares.

Hiring Jill as our doula was one of the best decisions we made along this journey. Even though our birth story turned out to be different in every way than anticipated we could always count on Jill's unwavering support and loving, calm, and nurturing energy to keep us grounded. She went above and beyond during a long 5 day birth. I turned to her not only for pain management and support during the birth but also in the weeks after the baby was born. She has become a friend. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a doula with a sense of humor and a deeply grounded and innate sense of what her mamas need.

Jill was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. She helped me write out a birth plan, addressing factors that hadn't crossed my mind. She was supportive of all of my decisions and when I felt unsure about things, she offered evidence based research on issues to help me make an efucated decision as well as what was best for me. I ended up having a C section and she was my guardian angel. Shortly before she and my husband entered the operating room. I had a panic attack, due to being unable to move and feeling very alone, despite the medical staff in the room. She talked me down from it and gave me a play by play of everything happening, making sure my wishes were observed and I had that first precious skin to skin moment with our son. Thanks to Jill, my birth turned out beautifully. I would recommend her to anyone looking for somebody compassionate, caring, funny, and responsible. She is simply the best!

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.
