Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Without Jackie’s knowledge, compassion, energy, & support our birth wouldn’t have been the positive, empowering experience it was. Not only did she bring that energy to labor and delivery, but to all of the weekly & monthly virtual meetings we’d had leading up to the big day. My husband & I were amazed with the depth of her knowledge on seemingly all things labor, delivery, baby, breastfeeding, post-partum.

Because of COVID, we hadn’t met her in person before she showed up at our house, but as soon as she arrived we were at ease & felt like reinforcements had arrived. I was afraid of the pain, longevity, & all the unknowns; Jackie helped me reframe it as a natural and normal thing. My husband was nervous he wouldn’t know what to do to help me through it. When our hospital’s policy was only to allow one support person, my husband suggested it be Jackie as he felt like she would be the one to better assist me. Luckily by the time we were at the hospital, the policy allowed for two support people. Jackie guided him through actions he could take to be the best partner possible. Whenever we were at a crossroads & wanted to know our options, Jackie easily explained them with the pros & cons. She made us feel informed & not judged for whatever decisions we made.

She met us at our house around 3AM on Wednesday morning, went to the hospital with us at 9AM, & stayed with us until a couple of hours after the birth Thursday morning = about 30 hours total. No doubt she was tired too but she constantly gave off an excited & caring energy as if there was nowhere else she would rather be. She left as we were prepped to go to post-partum & STILL took our call when we had a follow-up question about 20 minutes after she left.

She checked in regularly to see how we were doing & if we had any questions. When we’re ready to have another kid, we will hire Jackie again.
