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

We were on the fence about getting a doula at all, wondering what they were for if your partner is gung ho and supportive. Boy are we glad we did. Initially, I thought we wouldn’t need a Doula, Boy was I wrong. Jessica was a perfect match for two high strung, First Timers, Type-A types such as us- lots of questions, etc. Jessica was so calm, kind, accepting, and encouraging. It was a gift to have her unlimited availability via text and email through our pregnancy. When it was go-time, Jessica came over within an hour, walked us through early labor like a champ, supporting my husband who was supporting me. My Birth went VERY fast and if it wasn’t for Jessica’s quick thinking/advice, our situation would have been much different. I really cued into her voice and presence through out. I wasn’t sure I was in Labor but somehow, Jessica knew to see past my HypnoBirthing State, and get me to the Birthing Center, quick. And good thing because we got to the Birthing Center and had our baby within 7 minutes, 1 contraction later. She is a rock in the storm that the surprising and overwhelming aspects of birth can be. A day that could have been traumatic or nightmarish ended up the best day of my life. Jessica played a big part in how proud And triumphant we feel about our birth story, even if it was a wild ride (literally!) Her follow up visit was really an amazing experience too! I don’t know how Jessica was able to capture such beautiful photos all while supporting me & directing my husband. We would without a doubt hire her again. My husband is far more financially restrictive than I, and we both feel paying a Doula was the BEST money we could have spent. You truly get what you pay for. From the large amount of Information during my Pregnancy, The Photography of our Birth, lots of Lactation help, Postpartum Care; Jessica went above and Beyond. Even answering my Texts at 3am, and 5am. We will always have a major love for Jessica.
