Testimonial for Jessica Gillan: Bellies, Boobs, Babies & Bliss

When I found out I was pregnant (naturally), after 7 years of doing IVF,  I went through all the emotions - beginning with excitement but evolving into apprehension. I met with a OB group in town who did not help ease my worry and left me feeling like I was doomed. Call me crazy, but I preferred to see my pregnancy as normal, exciting and empowering experience! When I switched to the Birthing Center, at 20 weeks, I had found a better match for us. I went to the Child Birth Info Meeting and the Birth instructor recommended obtaining a Doula.  At first, I was not sure if I would also need a doula or if I could afford it, but the Midwives highly recommended Jessica. I loved the genuine, personal care Jessica gives expecting parents and I knew from our initial phone call that she was exactly who I was wanting for our Birth. A big perk for me was feeling so at ease about having a natural birth, even when things got quite hard in the moment. Jessica was always two steps ahead, knowing exactly what I was needing, or going to need, at that time.  Jessica was also very helpful to my husband (who never been to a birth before) through his many questions beforehand, and during our Birth. I felt that everything I was experiencing was normal, expected and that I could do it. It was a stellar feeling that, unfortunately, is often not part of the many birth stories I have heard.

The most admirable thing about Jessica, which makes her such a wonderful doula, is her energy and passion for her work. She knows her stuff! She really cares about the families and babies she works with. Her love and support just overflows! My baby girl is 6 months old now and I’m still feeling empowered about our birth and the value of having a Doula. I will be for many years to come. We really wanted a Doula with a lot of experience and Jessica's high experience level really shines through in her work.

We would love to work with Jessica again.
