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

Immediately I liked Jessica. She's very down to earth, humorous and easy to get along with. Yet, she's strong, determined and so knowledgeable! With my first born I had no way to naturally combat my back labor and contractions. We were alone at the hospital and the Nurses didn't help us at all.  I was completely unaware there were any techniques to ease the intensity. My first birth was HARD and 38 hours long.  I'd always wanted to achieve a natural birth and now I see how a doula paves the way! After a few prenatal appointments, our Midwife recommended Jessica. My husband and I decided to make contact and jump on board with her as our doula. Every question I had Jessica was there to answer at any time of day or night. Jessica met us at our house, things picked up right when she got to us; so we decided to get to the Birthing Center. I was Thankful Jessica had towels and pads with her because my water broke in the car. Jessica was so intuitive; always thinking ahead, as if she knew it was about to happen. At the Birth Center, Jessica encouraged and coached me through contractions. Jessica taught my husband how to use counter pressure on my spine, hips and knees to combat my horrible back labor. I had my baby in only Five hours, from first contraction, to pushing, to meeting our baby girl. I know Jessica and our Midwife were the reason things went well and quick. I was much calmer this time around. Jessica helped me find my most comfortable position and I enjoyed her freezing cold lavender rags on my neck. She was beyond encouraging each time I began to doubt myself. Jessica reminded me "one contraction at a time" and before I knew it my beautiful daughter was in my arms and my dream birth had become a reality. I HIGHLY recommend Jessica's doula services; Our Midwife was right about Jessica, so glad we had her there. Best investment ever. I look forward to having Jessica by my side in the future again!
