Testimonial for Jessica Gillan: Bellies, Boobs, Babies & Bliss

We had a wonderful experience with Jessica as our doula!  On the day our baby was born, Jessica checked in throughout the day and rearranged her schedule to meet us whenever and wherever it worked for us.  She came to our home to help me through active labor and the early transition phase before heading to the birth center.  Jessica was calm and positive, a very relaxing presence!  She had fantastic massage techniques that helped me relax and alleviated my discomfort.  At the birth center, Jessica was very encouraging and supportive of both me and my husband.  Jessica's words helped me feel focused and empowered, and her support helped me have the kind of birth I had hoped for - natural, intimate, and intervention-free.  Since I didn't use any pain medications, her massage techniques provided a lot of relief.  She was even brought snacks!  Jessica took beautiful photos after the birth, which we really appreciated and cherish.  Jessica was equally affirming and present after the birth and frequently checked in to see how our family was faring in the fourth trimester.  She visited us and offered support for breastfeeding, parenting, and latching in particular.  Of all of the breastfeeding advice I'd received throughout and after pregnancy, Jessica's was by far the most helpful.  Jessica was such a big part of our baby's birth, we can't imagine it without her and will call her next time we add to our family!
