Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Jackie was unbelievable, and I will absolutely work with her again when it comes time for baby number two.

During my pregnancy, Jackie was fully available to answer questions and provide advice. She was particularly helpful in walking us through a birth plan.  There was so much we didn't even know we had to decide, and she explained everything expertly. She also pointed us to evidence-based resources when we wanted more information. And she taught us comfort techniques that we put to good use during labor.

In the last weeks of my pregnancy, Jackie made many suggestions about things to try to get the baby to come.  More importantly though, she was there for emotional support while I was struggling with the end of my pregnancy. She was a real comfort as I prepared for an induction when baby decided she was just too comfortable to leave on her own.

My labor turned out to be very long and exchausting (about 40 hours), and I'm not sure how my husband and I would have gotten through it without Jackie. She came quickly when we called her, even though it was 2am on Thanksgiving Day.  Once with us, she was  positive and immediately got to work massaging me and helping me work through contractions.  I actively labored unmedicated with my husband for about 5 hours using comfort techniques that Jackie taught us.  Jackie, my husband, and I actively labored together unmedicated for another four hours. She also made suggestions about positions to help get the baby lower in my pelvis that my doctors agreed with and used.

Once my water broke, about 10 hours into active labor, things became much more intense. I was screaming in pain and unable to really communicate. Jackie was an expert and remained calm throughout. She was a huge help to my husband during this time when he was really distrssed.

She also took beautiful pictures of our new family. Jackie gets our highest recommendation.
