Testimonial for Jodi Utter

To say that we were grateful to have had Jodi as our postpartum doula this summer would be the understatement of the century. In addition to being our doula, she also quickly became my guide, counselor, therapist, and friend. Given it was our firstborn, we didn't quite understand what to expect and how to cope, even though we had intellectually attacked these questions by doing a lot of reading and research. We did not have family around, and our parents could not visit due to COVID. As a result, after an unexpectedly hard labor and delivery process, we were quickly overwhelmed - with my physical recovery, breastfeeding issues, persistent jaundice, need for supplementation, multiple pediatrician visits a week and the usual crying/sleeping/exhaustion. Jodi helped us navigate all of these, and she was particularly skilled at leading us through it step by step, with what made most sense at that time, without hurrying or putting undue pressure, and balancing what Western medicine said vs. the traditional practices our families would recommend. I often felt judged by the other providers we interacted with and Jodi was instrumental in talking through how I felt and helping me build confidence in myself as a parent and the decisions I was making.

Needless to say, she was amazing with our baby. Her decades of experience show through clearly - our baby loved her, and she brought so much warmth, love, and adoration to her every interaction with him. And to top it all off, her little acts of incredible kindness or thoughtfulness still took us by surprise ever so often (even when we knew she was this amazing) - you will know this if you work with her :)

I could go on and on, but still not be able to adequately convey how much we love Jodi! Thank you for being our guide and our champion!
