Testimonial for Jenny Gillespie

We decided very late in my pregnancy to hire a doula (two weeks from my due date!), and completely lucked out in finding Jenny. We had been on the fence about hiring a doula because we are pretty private people and were not sure we’d be comfortable with someone along for the journey with us. Jenny met with us right away and immediately put us both at ease with her warmth and humor. She made a point to understand our boundaries – what makes me comfortable, what makes me agitated – and was always respectful of that. She made sure we knew it was about our comfort level, not hers, and said we could kick her out of the room at any time if we wanted some privacy. Well, we never kicked her out of the room! We took such comfort that she was there with us that we wouldn’t have had it any other way.


Jenny was always just a phone call away when we needed her – for advice, questions, and, finally, for when our son was on his way. With Jenny in our corner, we always felt like we had a great source of experience, knowledge and wisdom on our side, and that was enormously reassuring and helpful for us as first time parents-to-be. She made us both feel like we could handle anything unexpected that may come our way during the delivery, and took a lot of anxiety out of the entire experience. During my labor and delivery, she always seemed to find a way to make me feel a little less uncomfortable, a little more relaxed. I always felt encouraged and empowered to go just a bit further than I thought I could, and I was so grateful for that support. She provided a continuum of care and support before, during and after the arrival of our son that truly made the journey a whole lot smoother.

Thank you, Jenny!
