Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

We used Jackie as our doula for the birth of our second daughter.   It was the best decision I've made - Jackie was incredibly helpful and knew so much - not only related to the birth itself but also the weeks after the birth.   Despite the COVID restrictions, she was fully there for me during early labor - I felt truly supported.  And during labor when I was in the hospital and she couldn't be there (because of the hospital's restrictions) she was in constant contac with my husband.  Most impactfully for me, though, was the post partum assistance she provided.  She encapsulated my placenta and came over several times to help me with nursing and healing questions and general baby questions.  She was so supportive - I was in a vulnerable place and she offered complete relief with her suggestions. I felt that with both my daughters, the post partum period is the time that I needed the most support, and Jackie went above and beyond.  She was flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, compassionate, and comforting (importantly).  As one example, I had crippling headaches from the epidural but I didn't know it was from that. I texted Jackie and she knew immediately that that was what I was experiencing and she suggested I contact the doctor and told me some tools to cope and what I could potentially expect.  She also came and did a weighted feeding when I was nervous that my baby was not getting enough milk/not gaining weight.  I cannot recommend Jackie highly enough.
