Testimonial for Jessica Whitson

Jessica was an excellent doula for the birth of our daughter. Early on, my wife decided to attempt a natural childbirth and with no family in the area, we wanted to have a presence in the delivery room that would allow me, as the birth coach, to provide the best support I could. As a first time dad, it was slightly intimidating to be the primary support person for my wife during the childbirth, although we did not want a doula that would make my presence redundant. Jessica was the perfect choice for our birth, and she definitely enriched our experience.

 

From the beginning, Jessica made herself available to meet in person and answer all of our questions. We were in constant communication as the due date got closer, and when my wife went into labor, Jessica arrived at the hospital within an hour of our admittance and stayed there the entire night with us.

 

Throughout the labor process, Jessica’s demeanor was laid back and calming, and she offered useful recommendations (birth ball, music, candles) that aided in my wife’s comfort and worked seamlessly with the labor. She tailored her involvement in the process to how the labor was progressing and my confidence level with different techniques (breathing, helping the wife with squatting, etc.). We were also impressed with how helpful she was with the small things and Jessica’s attention to detail really made it a comfortable environment for my wife. Near the end, when it became a bit more intense, Jessica made some very effective recommendations for my wife’s birth position.

 

Overall, having Jessica as our doula gave me the confidence to support my wife and provide her with a positive childbirth experience.
