Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Working with Jackie was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and reassuring throughout my pregnancy and labor. From the first meeting, I was confident that we would have a great experience with Jackie - she was able to answer questions and explain things easily to my husband and I. When creating our birth plan, she was able to talk us through our options and was not judgmental at all (for example, I knew I wanted an epidural, and while a lot of Doulas try to discourage it, Jackie had no such reaction; she just made sure I was aware of my options and knew what comfort measures to use until I was ready to ask for one). We were able to text/email her any time with questions and she was quick to respond. When she didn’t have the answer right away, she researched it for me and got back to me quickly.

When I went into labor in the middle of the night, Jackie talked me through laboring at home (according to our plan) for as long as I could. When I finally went to the hospital, she arrived shortly thereafter and immediately sprung into action making sure I had everything I needed, reminding me to eat and drink to keep my energy levels up, and being there for my husband and I as we made decisions along the way (explaining options and talking us through what it all meant without pressuring us in any way). She stayed with us until about an hour after my daughter was born and scheduled our home visit for shortly after we left the hospital. She was also a great resource as I struggled through breastfeeding early on and was always very supportive and responsive. I highly recommend Jackie and could not be happier with my birth experience. (My husband also sings her praises and felt so much more comfortable and confident having her with us; it was huge for him to have the support as well so that he was not stressing about making sure I was being taken care of).
