Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Choosing to hire a doula for the birth of our first child was one of the best decisions my husband and I ever made. Jackie and her partners were recommended to us by our good friends who were also having their first child. The two of them talked about how invaluable it was to have Jackie with them throughout their pregnancy journey and into parenthood. From the beginning, I was scared about everything related to pregnancy and childbirth, added to that was the anxiety of the pandemic.  Before working with Jackie I was not someone who was comfortable advocating for myself, but she encouraged me to talk to my doctor about how I was feeling. Jackie also prepared my husband and I to push for our choices during the labor/delivery process, so many things we never would have known!

When the time came to meet our little one, we were not scared. We like to describe it as having all of the answers to the "test" ahead of time. We knew what to expect and what to do. Jackie was not able to come into the hospital, but she labored with me at home. While we were at the hospital, Jackie was checking in and communicating with my husband during and after the birth. My husband and I both felt supported while Jackie helped us remain as calm as we could be during it all. 

Once we brought our baby home, Jackie continued to answer questions that we had in those first few days/weeks. We feel so lucky to have her to talk with when we are unsure about things, or just need some reassurance or support about newborn care and life as new parents. 

We honestly cannot imagine going through all of this without her, and we cannot recommend her enough. If we have another child, we already know that we will not hesitate to have her guide us through it all again.
