Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I am respectful of every family's choices and parenting styles, embracing diversity and individual comfort zones. My commitment to clients is to provide professional, reliable, and compassionate care. I pride myself on collaborating with health providers toward the common goal of family support. I reflected on my own birthing and pregnancy experience during training and discovered my heart pulling passion to protect underrepresented communities. I have a heart for single moms and our youth.

I moved here in my third trimester. No one could help me continue my ob care. In comes Jayde the doula on a mission. Within 72 hrs of looking she found my family a beautiful birthing center which fit in my budget! When she came to care for my family for postpartum care she took over the reins where I could not. When I felt like I might have my hands full with now three children there she was. She lifted my older children up. With her help we let my older children know that they were secure and still very much loved by mom and dad. This is the community the black family needs.

I highly recommend Jayde to any family out there. At first, I thought that doulas were only for birth support, but Jayde has taught me they are more than that. Her expertise, advice, referrals, and support around all things pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and postpartum have been so helpful and provided a a lot of comfort, especially when it comes to me supporting my wife through the help of Jayde’s advice.

Working with Jayde was an absolutely fabulous experience. We connected with her instantly and felt extremely supported along the way. She was always available to give her advice and provide research-based information as we had questions.

If you're looking for a doula to take you in like family, you can stop your search now. Jayde always puts her patients first! Helped me find stretches and exercises that helped with pain and preparing for labor. Encouraged cervical opening by pushing me and walking along side me for weekly walks. Also, Jayde made labor go by much more quickly by encouraging me to use a peanut ball to help the baby come down and then keeping me distracted from the pain with games! So appreciative to have had Jayde along my journey!

Ms. Jayde is amazing. She's very knowledgeable about her craft. She was my doula for my last two pregnancy (2018-2019 and 2020-2021) and made life super easy for me. She's takes the time to get to know everything about my pregnancies, she check in daily, and her postpartum care is amazing as well. You need this positive breath of fresh air on you side while pregnant, during delivery and during postpartum.
