Testimonial for Jessica Chamberlain, Birth Doula, LC, Massage Therapist

 Jessi is an amazing doula! I found her shortly after my family relocated to Minneapolis from Chicago.  I was 32 weeks pregnant, hoping for a VBAC, and had no idea how to plan for that in a new city with new care providers.  Jessi was a wonderful source of calm and strength from our first meeting.  At that point, I had yet to select a doctor or hospital.  Jessi patiently listened to me as I sorted out the pros and cons of each possibility.  She offered her thoughts but made it clear the decision was mine and that she would be there no matter what.  I appreciated her honesty, her attentiveness, and her unwavering support once I chose a doctor and hospital. She also provided numerous resources, books, and  websites to explore that offered lots of information about VBACs.

The day of my daughter's birth arrived.  My husband and I are both convinced that had Jessi not been there, the birth may have been a completely different experience. Jessi was with me the whole time, offering a variety of breathing techniques and positions to encourage a natural birth.  Her quiet yet rock solid strength helped me focus during each contraction.  Her easy going personality and friendliness made it easy to relax and enjoy the whole experience.  She worked with the nursing staff and my doctor, serving as an advocate for me and the baby.  I felt so much more at ease with her knowing she wanted me to have a VBAC just as much as I did! In the end, our healthy baby girl was born and I am so grateful that jessi was there!
