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

My husband and I hired Jessica after interviewing several other doulas. We wanted someone to join us at our birth who would help us have an unmedicated, natural childbirth.  Jessica knew just how to reassure my husband during our birthing time with ideas about how he could support me. They tag teamed giving me hip squeezes during the last stage of labor (it's hard work and I know my husband needed her support!). Jessica always said "Dads need Doulas, too!", this was our first birthing experience; we couldn't agree more! I would have never thought to sit on a birth ball in a hot shower, but it sure helped to magage the contractions as they picked up. Jessica brought this tool and had my husband work it across my lower back. My pain went from a 10, to a 4! Jess never left my side during our birthing time and reminded my husband to eat, drink and take breaks when he needed to. After every contraction, Jessica gave me a sip of juice even though I didn't know I needed it. It reminded me I wasn't alone and was a welcome refreshment. Those cold towels on my forehead and neck were just heaven! It was such a relief to have Jessica with us the whole time. I ended up delivering our baby without any pain medication, all Natural, thanks to the support of Jessica, My Husband, the amazing nursing staff at Woodwinds hospital, and God's Grace! What impressed me the most with Jessica was her intuitiveness and knowledge from beginning to End. I cannot imagine how our Birth would have gone without Jessica’s Lead. We would highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a supportive, informed, Experienced Doula.  -Kelly Wagner
