I hired Jill in hopes of having her support in my planned natural childbirth at Christiana Hospital.  When circumstances changed (mild-preeclampsia showed up) and the doctor sent us in 10 days early to be induced, Jill was extremely supportive.  She helped to try to get a movable monitor, helped me try to get into more comfortable positions while I could, and generally did all she could do within the ever increasing limits we were given.  When it came time for pushing, she helped me remember to breathe - and helped with positioning as best she could.  Once our daughter was born, she took pictures that we would not have thought to take and helped me a bit while my husband was over with our daughter as she was being checked out by the nurses.  

Our meetings before and after delivery with Jill were also helpful.  She was very kind to listen to all of our stories and my tendency to over-share, and she had very helpful suggestions regarding things to think about related to childbirth - and how to process what happened afterward.  

Although she wasn't able to use her entire repertoire for our daughter's birth because of our changed circumstances, I am very grateful for the help she was able to provide and I am sure her help would have been very much appreicated had we been able to have a natural childbirth as well.

We used Jill as our doula for the birth of our second child. Jill was very attentive and present before, during, and after the birth of our daughter. While I was pregnant she was very quick to answer any questions that I had. Also if she did not have an answer to my questions right away she took the time to use her resources to find out the information for me. I had a lot of resless leg syndrome and interrupted sleep durning my prenancy and she was very helpful with both those issues. She went above and beyond to be present at the birth, traveling a lot that day. My birth experience was great because she was there to help and support not only me but my husband as well. Jill was great at coaching my husband in ways he could help and be supportive during the birthing process. Jill was very helpful in the days after my daughter arrived. She made sure to check on us that breast feeding was going well, that I was eating well and resting enough and that we were adjusting well to life with a new born. I highly recommend using Jill's doula services. I will definitely use her again for future pregnancies and births.
