Client Testimonials for Jasmine Krapf

Elizabeth Smith

I loved having Jasmine at my daughter‘s birth. She was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful both during and after the birth. She was very attentive, helping to make sure that I had the support I needed, while also giving me the space to move and birth in a way that was comfortable for me. She was super helpful and able to anticipate my needs  even before I could voice what I needed. Jasmine was also super helpful and a great wealth of knowledge about my newborn and being a new mother. I love the relationship that we forged during my pregnancy and early motherhood. I will definitely be calling Jasmine if we have another baby in the future.

If you’re looking to hire a doula or if you’re unsure and just considering it, I would highly recommend Jasmine. I had my first baby eight years ago and I knew I wanted to create a birth plan that matched my values. I had a client who had used Jasmine and highly recommended I reach out to her. It was, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made. Jasmine is warm, loving, knowledgeable, compassionate & listens to her mommas wants, needs & fears. She made my first pregnancy more delightful and I was less fearful of the uncertanties that come along with a first baby. You’re lucky if your birth goes exactly as planned. I had plans but my first birth went astray from my original goal of having a natural birth. Jasmine knew my priorities and was a wonderful advocate for me when the doctors tried to persuade me into having a c-section with my first birth. Without Jasmine by our side in the delivery room, I never would have had the vaginal birth I hoped for. She saved me from having to be concerned over a vback with my second & third births. This was instrumental to me as a mom. So much so, I knew I needed Jasmine around for each of my following births.

During my second birth, I had to be induced when my son was 2 weeks late. I was unhappy with the induction but also was unaware that I had options surrounding my induction. I went into painful pitocin driven delivery without any meds. I was helpless. Jasmine communicated with delivery nurse & had the pitocin turned down. When you’re intensely in the middle of labor it‘s a tremendous relief to have someone by your side who can speak on your behalf. 

We loved Jasmine so much, we invited her to be a part of our third and final birth. My labor and delivery wouldn’t have felt the same without her. She’s an amazing human and a passionate doula. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the decision to work with her.
