Testimonial for Jessica Ruscetta, CD(DONA), PCD, CLC

There are truly no words for how valuable having Jessica as part of my pregnancy, L&D, and postpartum experience has been. My partner and I recognized our need for support with our first child when I learned how few options I had for labor due to allergies and medical considerations unique to me. We began to look for a doula and instantly connected with Jessica because of her warmth, knowledge and passion, and relatable personality. Our preliminary sessions helped us prepare a birth plan, understand options for l&d based on my needs, and learn comfort measures that could help us achieve the natural birth we hoped for. I ended up needing to be induced 3 weeks early and very unexpectedly, and Jessica was there by phone and text every step of the way to help us understand what was happening, why, and what our options were (and this was a process that lasted 3 days in the hospital!). With active labor, Jessica was right by our side. She provided many options for comfort measures (massage, positioning, etc.) and helped keep me calm and focused and my partner calm and involved in every step. Many things diverged from my birth plan, but Jessica was there to help me understand fully all my options at every turn so that I felt comfortable no matter what I was presented with. She stayed all afternoon, night, and the next day for active labor and was right there with my partner and me while my son was delivered. She helped me advocate for immediate skin-to-skin, helped with lactation support, and made sure I was taken care of and understood my options for postpartum care (for me and my boy) after delivery. My partner and I had such a terrific L&D experienice because of Jessica's support. We have also benefitted from her postpartum and lactation support tremendously. I look forward to continued work with her and if I ever have another child she'll be the second, after my partner, to know! If you're considering working with Jessica my advice is to do it!
