Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Jackie was my doula for my third birth, and I wish I’d used District Doulas for all my births!  I found the prep classes to be invaluable.  Even as a third pregnancy, I learned so much and felt better prepared than my previous two births.  I loved being able to watch the videos anytime and found them to be a great way to get to know Jackie, Michele, and Carolyn and to reinforce what mattered most to me for my birth.

I appreciate the doulas’ priorities of making the birthing individual feel empowered and on helping us think through what we really want for ourselves and our babies.  I felt very secure knowing they were there to advocate for my personal preferences throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

My birth went very differently than I ever imagined it would.  When I was faced with needing a c-section to keep me and my baby safe, Jackie helped me work through that very difficult decision, shared her own birth experiences, and reassured me that it would be okay.  In a really intense situation, she helped me stay calm and feel good about my decision in a way that none of the providers could.  I can’t imagine facing that situation without her support.  As my birth shifted from a natural labor process to an epidural labor and then a c-section, Jackie had the tools to support my labor and my emotional state at every turn.

Jackie’s support postpartum was also essential.  She gave helpful suggestions for daily newborn challenges I was facing and connected me to valuable resources for that time period, including a wonderful therapist to help me process my unexpected birth outcome.
