Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

We can't say enough good things about Jackie! Jackie provided both birth and postpartum support for us. As a first-time mom, I found the process of preparing for birth daunting, especially since I wanted an unmedicated birth. Jackie's support in sessions before the birth provided me with great resources to prepare for the birth I wanted and made me feel confident. They also helped my husband - she provided us a lot of information on ways he could support me and it made him feel more prepared. Jackie provided excellent support at the hospital and, when things didn't go as we had planned and I had to be induced, helped me remain calm and in control of our birth experience. I have such great memories of our birth process in a large part because of Jackie.

The postpartum support was even more valuable to us than the birth support! Taking home a newborn, figuring out breastfeeding, and trying to know if we were doing things "right" - it was hard! Having Jackie provided lactation consultant support and daytime and overnight support helped us stay sane in those early weeks as we learned how to care for our baby and support each other. I know my husband felt better about his return to work knowing that Jackie would be able to stop in and help me for daytime postpartum shifts. Her tips for getting our baby to nap and sleep well at night are still so helpful. I've gone to a few moms groups since having our child and can see how lucky we were to have such early support from such a knowledgable and supportive person - it really helped us start parenthood out right.
