Testimonial for Jenny Gillespie

I cannot say enough good things about Jenny Gillespie.  My husband and I both decided to use a doula for my childbirth because I really wanted additional support during the delivery process.  I interviewed several doulas and found Jenny to be the best fit for us.  I did not feel any pressure from Jenny to have my birth plan any specific way and I found her to be very comforting to both my husband and I.  We also decided to do our childbrith, baby care and lactation classes through Jenny and I was blown away at the amount of knowledge she gave to each aspect of delivery, breastfeeding, baby care, etc. Jenny also took the time to understand and focus on the relationship between my husband and I.  During childbirth my son started going into distress and I was extremely nervous.  The staff at the hospital was not helpful in explaining what was going on and they wanted me to make certain decisions that I was not sure about.  Jenny helped explain exactly what was going on and served as a great advocate for me.  Jenny also helped me calm down and remain calm during the rest of my labor.  In the end I had a good experience with my sons birth and I attribute that all to Jenny.  After my son was born, he had some trouble latching on correctly, I had oversupply of milk and overactive let down.  Jenny helped trouble shoot all of these issues and provided a good base for my son and I to have a healthy and positive breastfeeding relationship.  Without Jenny's lactations support I do not know if I would have continued to breastfeed.  Jenny far exceeded my expectations in a doula and I will continue to use her in the future for any children we have.
