Jessica was great, I highly recommend her as a doula! She was kind and knowledgeable through the whole thing; before birth, during, and after. Even when plans changed at the last minute and I ended up needing an induction she was there at the hospital helping my husband and I the whole time. We definitely couldn't have done it without her, she was great! As first time parents the whole thing was a pretty scary process for us, especially since we didn't plan on a hospital birth, but Jessica helped us feel more at ease. Her doula training and experience helped me get through the contractions the best I could. I highly recommend Jessica, she gets a 10/10 from us!!!
I feel quite blessed to have found Jessica. Though this was my 5th baby, Jessica still had new and valuable ideas to offer me in out pre-natal visits. Her gentle demeanor created a safe environment to voice my fears and hesitations, while her knowledge and supportiveness helped build my confidence. Jessica aided me in letting go of previous negative experiences to truly improve my own ability of naturally birthing my baby at home.
My labor was fast and hard. Jessica had a very quiet presence during this, almost as if she wasn't there, but at the same time placing a cool, wet washcloth on my neck or offering me a sip of ice water from a straw. I didn't have to ask for these things, she just seemed to instinctively know I needed them.
After the baby was born, my husband was quite busy attending to our other four children and the midwives were engaged in finishing up my post-partum care. I knew that my newborn was in good hands with Jessica, who is an experienced mother. This allowed me to relax and take the path of proper healing before stepping back into the ever-consuming role of caring for a newborn.
I have birthed all my babies in different locations with different types of providers, and I have to say that this birth was by far the best out of all of them. I credit much of this to Jessica and believe that she would be a valuable asset to any birth experience!
