Testimonial for Jill Magoffin CD(DONA)

TL;DR - Jill is an incredible doula, wonderful human and was an essential part of our team when bringing our first child into the world!  I can't recommend her enough, she went above and beyond our expectations!

PART 1 OF 4

My wife and I had our first baby this year and I can't imagine what the experience would have been like without Jill.  We were a bit on the fence about hiring a Doula until we started to have some communication issues with our OB.  Our OB was without a doubt professional, albeit a little too professional if you catch my drift.  We felt like the whole experience so far was feeling cold and dehumanizing.  It was being treated more like a medical situation and less like a beautiful, transformative moment in our lives.  We needed someone to help create more balance in this experience, so we decided to take the leap and collaborate with a Doula.

The reason I say collaborate is because it is exactly that, a collaboration.  You don't simply sit back and let someone else come in and make decisions for you, nor do you let a stranger come into your home and give you unsolicited advice.  Jill quickly made us realize that we were forming a team with a plan of action.  This team building was built on communication, research and finding solutions together.  Jill listened to us and answered all of our questions about what to expect in the days and weeks leading up to our daughters birth. 

We created a birth plan together by going step by step through all of the possible scenarios we would or could encounter and what our decisions would be.  We talked about the pros and cons of the different choices we would have to make and Jill provided the evidence and research behind every single aspect that we needed more information about.  She never pushed us in any direction we were unsure of.
