Testimonial for Jordan Christopher

Jordan helped us during my first pregnancy and delivery in April/May 2015. My husband and I took a bunch of classes at Roosevelet, where I was set to deliver, but having Jordan was more valuable than the classes! Like most first time parents, we were nervous and I convinced my husband that hiring a doula would be great for us. I was right! In the weeks leading up to my delivery, Jordan was always available by email and text, no matter what time of day or night, and was very soothing effect and comforting when I had to go into the hospital in my third trimester because I hadn't felt the baby move. She was so responsive and caring, and we were all relieved when it turned out to be a false alarm.

Finally I went into labor! I was GBS+ so once my water broke, we had to stay near the hospital. Jordan met us at a hotel nearby, and my labor was progressing much more quickly than anticipated. She used massage techniques, calming touch, helped me with the birthing ball, encouraged me to move into different positions, and helped me move around the room. Once we got to the hospital, our birth plan had to be tweaked a little but Jordan did not blink an eye and was totally focused on me and my labor. She had only encouraging words, no matter what happened. While we were focusing on our newborn, she grabbed our camera and took lots of pictures that we would not have had otherwise!

Once the baby was born, Jordan helped me with skin to skin, assisted in our first latch, and stayed to help with other things as well. I was sad when she had to leave! Looking back on my labor, I know that my husband was calmed greatly by her presence as well. He even said, multiple times after we left the hospital, that it was the best idea ever to hire her, and my labor would not have gone as well without her.

Jordan came to check up on us about a week after the birth. She helped me with nursing positions and different holds for the baby. We had a great experience!
