Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

My husband and I are so glad we chose Jackie and the Delivered Doulas team! We came late in the game (36 weeks pregnant ) since we had just moved to the area a bit unexpectedly. It had felt like adding one more decision in the midst of all our transition was too much.  Yet as I anticipated my birth experience, I knew I wanted to be able to advocate for myself. I often feel rushed at prenatal appointments and knew that I didn't want my "birth experience to happen to me" as Ashley, another doula on the team, had said. I wanted to look back and know that I had made the best decisions for myself and my baby. So we jumped in head first, participating in most of the virtual classes to gain as much information that we could. I started to feel empowered and loved learning all that they shared. Jackie, Michelle, and Ashley are very passionate about what they do and it's contagious! To make a long story short, I ended up having a C-Section and a bit earlier than planned because I went into labor over a week before it was scheduled (we found out at 28 weeks that my daughter was breech). I ended up choosing to not have anyone join me at the hospital due to the quick nature of the delivery. Yet the contact I had with them over the phone/text was genuine and full of celebration that our baby had arrived safely! Afterwards, Jackie came and visited us at our home twice, eager to meet our daughter and equip me with lots of helpful tools for breastfeeding. While my birth experience didn't go as I had planned, I believe that having Jackie and the DD team provided the care, support, and practical knowledge that I needed to navigate the changing circumstances before, during, and after delivery.
