Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Jackie has helped us at the births of all three of our children, and every time she has been absolutely incredible. The births all have been different - inductions with and without epidurals, a frantic, labored dash to the hospital for the one in between - and Jackie has always known exactly the kind of reassurance and support to provide before, during, and after.  She is calm, calming, and extremely knowledgeable about not only the birthing process but also navigating the whole hospital experience.  During this most recent birth, Jackie was irreplaceable in helping me focus on the feeling of what my body was actually doing, when the doctors only wanted to focus on the number of centimeters.  I know that this is what helped me relax and take charge of the feeling that it was *definitely* time to have that baby.  (And, sure enough, as soon as the doctors left, they had to be called right back in again.) 


When we had our first baby we weren't sure about whether to get a doula, but having Jackie there made the whole process so much more accessible that I'd never dream of having a baby without her there.  It was so nice to have someone there, not only in the delivery room but also before and after, to check in with about big and little questions.  Jackie also has an uncanny ability to know exactly when to step in.  She always makes sure to make my husband a part of the process, with enough direction to be helpful but not so much it feels intrusive.  We cannot recommend her enough.
