Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

My husband and I had the pleasure and luck to have found Jackie and have worked with her for the past year throughout my pregnancy and recent birth of our first daughter.  Jackie supported us as we put together our birth plan and helped us recognize what was important for us during the pregnancy and at the birth, without judgment.  For us this ultimately included a change in providers at 31 weeks, a stressful experience. Jackie was with us the whole way.

We selected Jackie because of her openness, her nonjudgmental stance on all birthing options, her experience both as a mother herself, as a doula, a lactation consultant, and as a former emergency services provider.  Her experience meant that no question was too out there and she brought with her a sense of calm and assuredness that was so helpful to us as first time parents. She has always been available to us via phone and email for any question or concern that arose. She is very responsive and always had a positive attitude about any of my questions.

At the birth itself, Jackie was a calming influence. She ensured that the hospital providers supported our birth plan and brought with her many tricks and tools to help me get through the physical and mental challenges of a natural birth. She also helped my husband be an active participant in the birth of our daughter.  Her presence and reassurance was so instrumental to my having a positive birth experience.

Since the birth of our daughter, Jackie has checked in routinely and has helped address breastfeeding challenges.  She is wonderful with our daughter and demonstrates care for both me and our daughter on a regular basis. I can't recommend Jackie enough and would absolutely ask her to be present at the birth of our next child.
