Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

We cannot recommend doula Jackie highly enough. She was a big reason we had the birth we wanted. When the nursing staff at our hospital was experiencing high turnover, Jackie stepped in to provide some continuity and help us through our fast-moving natural birth. She helped with positioning for my wife to get the baby descending, used counter pressure to ease some of the pain, and gave me suggestions on how to help during the labor. She was a calming and centering presence in an otherwise chaotic environment. It was like a bonus to have a lactation consultant as a doula as she was key in helping the baby latch properly for breastfeeding.

We interviewed three doulas and felt a connection with Jackie. We appreciated her evidence based philosophy and that she was open to assisting no matter what type of birth we wanted or ended up having. In addition to her birth doula services we attended her birthing class and found it extremely useful. We also hired her for some post-partum night services when the baby wasn’t sleeping, and even just one night of 6 straight hours of sleep helped immensely.

We will definitely hire Jackie again if we have another baby!
