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

After my second daughter was born, I suffered a terrible hemorrhage (caused by medical error.) and lost a lot of blood. It was very hard for me, and Jessica was there to listen. Jessica was kind enough to meet us at our home right after we were discharged from the hospital. There Jessica was on our porch, with a warm dinner for us all and an activity for our 3 yr old. I was SO drained for the first 3 weeks.  Every day I would call Jessica, she helped me realize that I COULD breastfeed, recover, process my Birth and care for my Girls. She was there for us as I dealt with mastitis, all while trying to recover. I ended up getting mastitis again, and then came the thrush. I did NOT think I could get through it all. I wanted to give up so badly, but Jessica showed us compassion and non judgement. She never pressured me to breastfeed. Jessica always told me "Your choices are yours, you do what is best for you"  Sometimes I would call her even though I knew the answer to my question, just to hear a friendly voice tell me that it would all be okay. Jessica gave me an outlet, an ear and sometimes (more that I'd like to admit) a shoulder to cry on and arms to hug me. Now, my baby is nearly 7 months old, and we are still going strong!! My baby girl is growing like a weed, and 23 pounds!! I owe Jessica more than I could ever express in words. She is amazing. You will never regret letting her into your life. You may even be lucky enough to be able to call her a friend at the end of your journey together! 
I cannot imagine what my Birth and after care would have been like without her presence and support. I get tears in my eyes thinking of how much she means to us.
