Testimonial for Jennifer Fisher

A dad's perspective: While I wanted to be the main support person for my wife (Michaela) during labor, I knew that even if I knew the right thing to say or do, my wife would probably not take it so well. This is where Jen comes in. Jen has a perfect attitude, and she can read the room perfectly. She can be light hearted, funny, serious, and most important of all, she is always judge-free.

At 39 weeks, the true value of Jen came through. We found out that our son was breech and Michaela needed to have a C-section (not what we had planned). My wife, being the meticulous woman that she is, did not take this news well.

When we told Jen this information, she prompted a meeting with Michaela. It allowed Michaela to voice her concerns with this change, and Jen explained every step that comes with a C-section. The day of the birth, Jen had us prepared with what was going to happen, making everything a much smoother process. Jen was with us every step of the way and was extremely helpful. She even kept reminding all of the doctors and nurses to allow her in the surgery room.

Jen stayed with us and helped when needed until we were comfortable enough for us to be on our own.There are moments  in the weeks after where things feel hopeless and we were just plain exhausted. Jen believes in making sure the mother is supported after birth. She encouraged us to text her whenever and it was a great resource for us and just knowing we have that comforted me at many times.

Jen loves what she does and it shows. Throughout all of the steps we felt taken care of. She is very cautious about setting the boundaries we as the parents wanted. It is an incredible feeling to have someone by your side that you trust and is very experienced in the process that for first time parents, can be very daunting at times. I am referring Jen to anyone I can and we will definitely use her for our next child!
