Testimonial for JESSAMYN KEAR

Part 1/2:

Oh man where to begin! I am a 32 year old first time dad and I’m sure most of the testimonials you read are from the moms’ side, however, I think it’d important that you get a man’s/fathers’ perspective.

A lot of people think that the Mom’s are the ones that are really only getting the actual service from a doula, when in fact, let me tell you that Jessamyn saved my A$$! As beautiful of a birth plan ym wife and I had in mind, nothing went as “planned”. My wife and I had a grueling 4 days no sleep in the hospital. My wife is a rockstar and 100 times stronger than I am so she was handling it better than expected. I however, am beyond thankful for Jessamyn.

Honestly, because I felt that my wife and I were such a strong team, I was pretty hesitant to hire a Doula and felt was not needed and a waste of money.

Since we delivered during the pandemic, the hospital we delivered at was only allowing one support person (myself) and a certified Doula. At the last minute (38 weeks pregnant) we were convinced to meet with a Doula by our parents since my wife’s mother couldn’t be there to help support. Thank god we listened!

One of my hesitations to having a Doula was because my wife and I aren’t the “natural birth” clientele. So I was scared that maybe a Doula wouldn’t be as well versed with all the medicine, hospital interventions, medical jargon etc. Wrong again! Jess legit knew everything and asked great questions that we wouldn’t even think of. Jess really had our best interest in mind the entire time and was respectful to making our own decisions. She also built a great relationship with the entire nursing staff during our time at the hospital and our OB. She really helped us and everyone a part of the labor and delivery process feel that we were one big team.

To be continued...
