Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

We used Jackie for the birth of our first son - simply put, Jackie was wonderful! She met with us several times in advance of the birth, and we learned a lot about preparing, packing our hospital bag, making a birth plan, and different comfort techniques.  She even gave us information on products we needed to have on hand after the baby was here - we definitely felt prepared going into the birth. On the day our son was born, Jackie was responsive to my text inquiries early in the morning when I started having signs of early labor.  She checked in with me regularly, and coached me over the phone on different techniques to help my baby settle into the proper positioning and for my contractions to gradually get longer.  My husband and I both talked with Jackei throughout the early labor stages, and when we asked, she promptly came to our home.  After laboring together at our house, she helped us decide when the best time was to head to the hospital, considering traffic and distance and my labor.  We definitely were more successful in our transition to the hosptial thanks to Jackie! I wanted a natural childbirth experience, and Jackie was great about supporting that. I labored at the hospital for nearly 12 hours before my son was born, and Jackie was present and engaged the entire time.  She was patient, encouraging, helped us into new positions when needed (and understanding when I said I didn't want to move at all!), held my legs when I needed counterpressure - and in the end, helped me achieve the childbirth experience I wanted.  We also used Jackie for her lactation consultant services, and she was a great coach for helping me ensure my son latched early and we had a successful breastfeeding experience.  It was great to have a continued relationship with Jackie after we got home to make sure we made a smooth transition.  I would highly recommend Jackie to anyone who wants an expeirenced, calm, and supportive doula.
