Testimonial for Jessica Whitson

I am so grateful Jessica is included in my sons birth story. My husband and I interviewed a few doulas before we found Jessica. We knew immediately she was the right fit! Jessica has a calm and assured presence, and is observant and an excellent listener. Jessica has a quiet authority while being unobtrusive. She is a true gift!

Jessica was an advocate for me and my birth. Her knowledge and experience were instrumental in my pregnancy and delivery.

During pregnancy, Jessica and I met several times to chat. It was an opportunity to ask her the hundreds of questions that I forgot in the OB’s office. She was available via text 24 hours a day (which worked excellent for my communication style).

My pregnancy was textbook “perfect” yet my delivery was different story. I was 12 days late (which isn’t unusually for a first child) and the doctor wanted to induce. Unfortunately neither the baby or I responded well to this. We ended up in an emergency cesarean section. To say it was emotional is an understatement. Yet Jessica was there. Her words of encouragement, her experience, her ability to be there just for my husband and I, was what I needed at the vulnerable time of giving birth. I love how she was in my corner and gave me permission to step back, just for a moment, to take a breath and remember why we were there. It was refreshing. While the medical staff was great, this was their “9-to-5”. For Jessica, this is her life passion.

After my son was born, she visited during my hospital stay and made at-home visits. We could have asked for additional postpartum assistance if we needed too as well. We found this comforting to know that if we needed extra help, we would have the continuity of someone who knew our whole journey.

I highly recommended Jessica as your Doula. I wish you a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery. It is a privilege to have Jessica included in your birth story.
