Testimonial for Jennese Birritteri

My husband was very skeptical of what a doula could do for us as second-time parents. We went to an interview set up with 3 different doulas with Jennese as 1 of our options. All were qualified and respectful, but Jennese immediately stood out as the one for us. My husband was asking which doula we were going to pick- before the door was closed! Her warm and inviting nature and sense of humor helped us make the decision initially. And each visit we had with her cemented our confidence in her ability to help us and ease our anxieties. As we navigated a very stressful last trimester, she was there with words of support and encouragement. I had additional medical concerns that popped up and could have potentially changed our entire birthing experience. She was thoughtful and helped by sharing her own birth experiences and knowledge. We were less anxious knowing that Jennese would be there with us through labor and delivery. 
Once labor started (induced), it was a whirlwind of activity. Before labor, Jennese had discussed my preferences regarding an epidural with me, which greatly helped with my confidence in asking for one when I was ready. Unfortunately, something went wrong with the epidural and I ended up with side effects. Jennese was our rock. She helped assure us that everything was going to be ok and talked me down in a moment of panic. The numbing agents had to be turned off and, by the time they could be turned back on, it was time to push. Jennese supported me through a med-free natural birth that I had not expected and was the voice of reason, helping to coach me at just the right moments. Not only was Jennese our hero during labor and delivery, she took amazing pictures (I don't even know WHEN during the super intense 5 hour labor or 15 minutes of pushing!). After the shock of having a baby arrive so quickly, she stayed with us until things started to settle down and the realization that we had another baby sunk in. HIGHLY recommend!
