Testimonial for Jill Magoffin CD(DONA)

PART 2 OF 4

After going back and forth a couple of times to make sure we were on the same page, the birth plan was complete.  This gave my wife and I a huge sigh of relief.  It was the first time we felt like we had someone on our side that was going to stand up for us in any moment of uncertainty.  Our nervousness about what labor and delivery was going to be like was quickly starting to vanish.

In addition to the practical, educational and collaborative nature of our experience with Jill, she was honestly such a joy to be around.  She has a great sense of humor and knows how to break the tension by talking to us like she's our friend.  We found ourselves talking about movies, tv and music which was very refreshing and humanizing.  We also love that she practices reiki and that she connects on a spiritual level with us in that way.  She told us that she was going to make our labor and delivery room "vibey" with lights and fake candles which is yet another thing we wouldn't have thought of that made the experience so much more comfortable.

When my wife's water broke at 1:30am, Jill answered her phone and talked us through what to do next.  The contractions began a hour later and Jill came over to our house without hesitating.  After I made sure that we were ready to leave for the hospital at a moments notice, Jill suggested that I get rest and she stayed up with my wife for the rest of the night.  Even though Jill wasn't in a rush to go to the hospital, she let us know that any time we wanted to go we should go.  Later that morning, as we were walking around the neighborhood trying to speed up the contractions, my wife decided it was time to go.
