Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Jackie took incredible care of us during and after the birth of our daughter. She took our preferences and personalities seriously and warmly tailored everything to us--we really felt like individuals, which is important because hospitals sometimes feel very anonymous and cold.

Jackie was so helpful at the hospital. She had dozens of tricks up her sleeve as far as comfort measures, helped my husband implement new and better ways to support me, assisted in translating some of the confusing moments, liaised exceptionally well with hospital staff, and made the whole thing go much more smoothly than it would have otherwise. She anticipated what we might need before we could and provided it before we'd think to ask. At a time when you're very overwhelmed, that is priceless.

After our daughter was born, Jackie stuck with us. It was HOURS that she stayed by our side. I needed to chat and process what had just happened and she totally got that, keeping me company with her positive-but-realistic attitude. In the recovery room, we only got occasional visits from hospital staff, so we needed to be quick and efficient about making requests, asking for more information, and getting what we needed from them. Jackie helped us strategize how to verbalize all of this in a to-the-point kind of way that the staff could act upon. "Next time she comes back, let's figure out what you want to say to get what you need," she said a few times. She didn't speak FOR us to the staff, which I think is important--she empowered US to be our own advocates, which can be tricky after an exhausting experience like the one we'd just had! So her support was vital. I've spent so little time in hospitals that I would have been totally lost trying to navigate all that on my own.

We had a great experience with Jackie and highly recommend her.
