Testimonial for Jenny Gillespie

Jenny was incredibly attuned to what I (the birth mother) and my partner needed throughout the course of my labor. To the point that she did things I didn't even know I needed, but that made all the difference in making me as comfortable and energized as possible. For example, when we first arrived in the hospital Jenny immediately asked how I felt about the temperature in my room and adjusted it accordingly. Then she asked if I wanted light spa music and some lavender scent, which was just right and which I never would have thought to ask for. Later, when we got into the room with the hospital's laboring tub, Jenny leapt into action, covering the clinical white light on the wall with her purple scarf to create a more soothing ambience. We spent some time laboring out on the birthing center's porch as well, and Jenny kept a sweet and thoughtful conversation going there as I focused on my breathing. During delivery Jenny asked me what I needed at just the right moments, offered me ice to chew and held my hand. She is also a lactation consultant, so she helped get me started with breastfeeding and then visited me at home for a full consultation when I was engorged. I would recommend Jenny to anyone and would have her as my own doula again without hesitation.
