Testimonial for Jenny Gillespie

Dear Jenny,

Caleb and I just want to let you know how wonderful it was to have you as our birth Doula for our baby girl's big day! You were such an invaluable part of the whole experience, that I just can't imagine how that night would have gone without having you there. I personally can't express enough how happy I am to have had you by my side.
You made such a big difference in making my experience through labor such a positive one. I think I got as close to my birth plan as possible, and a huge part of that was having you there to keep me focused and breathing- something that sounds easy, but isn't! You really are a calming spirit to have around, and you seemed to be totally in your element through the whole labor and birth process. Never once did I ever think that you weren't right there with me, and that's not easy- considering what an emotionally and mentally exhausting thing labor can be (not just for the mother, but the people around her). I know my husband as well was happy to have you there with us. I know he felt much better that there was someone else with us who knew what was going on at every step of the way and had the experience of how to help me through it all.
Without you I don't think I would've tried as hard to catch my baby, or understood as fast how to "push"- glad it only took a half hour! You were also invaluable in helping me to latch my baby on in that first hour.
You have always been generous with your time before and after the delivery as well; and it has been so wonderful to have someone to contact these first couple of weeks whenever the need arises.
I know that if we were to have another baby, I would want you there by my side again! I'm so happy with our little girl that it is hard for me to think that far in the future right now, but that is how strongly I feel about how great of a Doula you are!

With much love and a lifetime of appreciation,

Kristin
