Testimonial for Jill Magoffin CD(DONA)

Jill was FANTASTIC! When we interviewed Doulas, the thing that stood out was her sense of humor and her balance between Western medicine approaches, and more midwifery-informed approaches. What was clear throughout: she is not there to judge any choice about the birth you want or the advice your provider gives, but to support your ultimate desires and well being above all.

From the moment we hired her she was always super available and we were in close touch about our plans when changing hospitals, dealing with Covid protocols, etc. she always weighed in accordingly and remained flexible and optimistic to the shifts we wanted and those out of our control. She had a wealth of insights as we put together our birth plan, helping inform our choices from an evidence-based approach while always respecting our vision and priorities.

Her home visits laid the groundwork for us to be ready for the birth we wanted, but also to be prepared for whatever birth we ended up having!In labor and delivery, Jill was a dream - she prepared the room with such thoughtful considerations that really helped the nervous system. She made sure that we both were hydrated and fed, and that we always knew what options were available to us. When we had to reposition baby she had a bag of tricks ready to go to get him into place. She was an amazing, level-headed and compassionate coach throughout all stages, especially pushing, striking the right balance between pep talks, hilarious jokes, nurturing care and, as needed, a little dose of tough love. She knew exactly what my body needed to do to get baby out!

We all made an amazing team, and together advocated for our vision every step of the way to end up having the type of birth we wanted. She was full of love, for us and our baby, from beginning to end, and we recommend her to anyone hoping to round out their birth experience with a grounded, supportive, knowledgeable and profoundly positive presence and energy!
