Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Jackie, and the delivered doulas team, were instrumental in our achieving our VBAC!  I could write a novel but see below into pre, during and post birth. 
Pregnancy: no matter the question- they always had an answer or a resource (chiro, podcasts, etc) to help set me up for the best chance at achieving my VBAC. One moment I will never forget: walking out of my provider of 10yrs, completely deflated at 36 wks when suddenly they were no longer supportive of a VBAC... for no real reason. I called Jackie and immediately she guided me in the process of switching practices to one that was more encouraging of the birth we ultimately experienced. 

Birth: They guided me to understand which of these feelings were active vs. pre-labor (esp because all these feelings were completely foreign to me). Jackie helped us advocate for ourselves and when she physically arrived, it was like having a fairy g-dmother:  She knew exactly what I needed to do and when, encouraged me along the way, gave me tools to cope with discomfort. Jackie was 100% a catalyst to make this happen for us. 
Post Partum: beyond breastfeeding support and guiding me through getting my daughter's ties released, this post partum brought more mental gymnastics than last time. During one of her postpartum visits Jackie reminded me that just because it's hard, doesn't mean we have to suffer. She helped me normalize the thought of speaking to someone and I can say with confidence that as I write this review while my 12 week old naps, my veil is lifted and that is in large part because of the support I received from this team. 

If you've made it this far, you'll see it goes without saying that Delivered Doulas are an invaluable team or, as I have said to my friends, "probably the best push present you can ever gift yourself."
