Alison & Chris


Jacquie is an incredible doula - so knowledgeable, calm, and kind. With her guidance and support, we learned many valuable skills to help our baby feed well and thrive during the first few months of life. We are very grateful for her services, and would definitely recommend her to others! 

Steffi Schmidt


Jackie was a blessing for us!
Only few weeks prior to our son’s birth, we decided to get a postpartum doula, and after our first meeting with Jacquie we felt so comforted by her that we spontaneously decided to have her as our birth doula as well – and it was the right decision! Her presence was very calming and pleasant. In her sensitive, collegial way she could always give us the right advice!
Breastfeeding certainly would have been a bigger issue if it wasn’t for her showing me the techniques that made it so much easier and less frustrating!
Now that things have settled we really miss having her around as she was just the right doula for us! As my husband says, if we decide to have the second child at some stage, we will directly get back to her; Jackie will be our first and last choice for a doula!

Jacquie has been incredible to work with. She is simply amazing at what she does and has a natural gift in looking after Babies and their Momma's during the very critical early months. Her calm soothing presence will immediately put you at ease and she knows exactly what to do to help you feel confident. I cannot thank her enough for the invaluable help she provided with our twin girls.

We hired Jacquie as a post partum doula after the birth of our first son. We interviewed a couple of doulas but liked Jacquie's calm demeanor and extensive experience as both a doula and lactation consultant. I strongly feel that Jacquie's knowledge and patience are why I've been successful with breastfeeding, and why my husband and I felt set up for success as new parents. She came armed with tools and techniques from breastfeeding to baby carrying. I would not hesitate to hire Jacquie again and strongly recommend her to anyone who feels apprehensive about taking their newborn home from the hospital. I thoroughly enjoyed having Jacquie's help, and my son loved cuddling up to her so I could have a bit of me time!

Jacquie gave incredible support to our family after our twins arrived last December. We met with her about a month before they were born and she provided us some video links and guidance that offered us to be more prepared for breast-feeding in the hospital.  She asked what our goals were and basically from the minute our babies were born she helped us adjust to life with them, how to breast-feed, and to try to take care of ourselves as much as possible with a little sleep! She helped us organize things and figure out what we needed as the days went on and adjust our girls' feeding schedule and just when we thought we couldn't do it anymore she would magically find a way to just tweak one thing so we could get through a tough time. I think it is very unlikely that I would've made it past six weeks of breast-feeding if it wasn't for her help.  Our daughters are happy and healthy toddlers now and there is no way that we would've done as well without getting such a good start with Jacquie. We are so grateful and we recommend her all the time! Best investment we've ever made!
