Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

We will forever be grateful for how the District Doulas team guided us throughout our pregnancy. I was a pretty miserable pregnant lady, but having our doulas a text or phone call away (and seeing them regularly in the classes they offer) made me feel so much calmer throughout my pregnancy. When labor began, Jackie helped me stay comfortable at home for longer than otherwise would have been possible and was such a calming and supportive presence in the hospital. And a bonus I did not expect - she took photos of my husband and I (and our new baby) that I'll always be grateful to have. We'll absolutely be coming back when/if it's ever time for kid two.

TO BIRTH PARTNERS, my husband would like to add:

OK partner. They tell me you're on the fence about whether you'll see value from hiring a doula. But here's how it's going to go down. The labor's going to start. Well, she's going to think the labor started - you're really not going to be confident, because what do you know? She's going to be freaking out about whether she's OK and whether she should go to the hospital and whether this is really it or not and PLEASE do something to make it hurt less. You're going to call the nurse's line at the hospital. You're going to wait on hold. When you get through, they're going to tell you just wait and see how things go and come in when you're ready. This will be profoundly ambiguous. You will try some massage you read in a book and read her some stuff you read online. She will still be in pain and worried. And then the doula will arrive, and tell her with the authority of someone who has been there through hundreds of births that she is going to be OK. And she will tell her just the right positions to stay in and advise on when to go the hospital and help her with feeding when she gets home. I promise you, in all those moments, you will absolutely positively have seen the value in hiring a doula. Also, the classes were really informative.
