Testimonial for Jocelyn Skinner CD(DONA) LCCE

I’m so glad we found Jocelyn! I’m a first time mom and I was interested in a natural, physiological birth because I believe birth is a natural event before it is a medical one. I had learned how important doulas are when it comes to: supporting a physiological birth, the mother’s mental and emotional health, and advocating for the mother’s interests in a hospital setting which juggles many interests in addition to that of the mother’s. Jocelyn not only went above and beyond everything we had hoped for in a doula, but she made us feel extremely cared for through the end of my pregnancy, birth, and early postpartum. We had so much peace of mind because we felt like we could fully trust her birthing wisdom, intuition, and guidance. I was able to have a very successful labor because of her. There were several moments throughout labor where I would have been confused, unsure, stalled out, and possibly would have agreed to the “cascade of interventions” if it were not for Jocelyn continually guiding us, reassuring us, and making sure I stayed calm and relaxed. My labor progressed beautifully with her helping me to try a variety of positions to get my baby progressing properly. Unfortunately, I tore significantly during pushing, but, even then, she stayed later than she normally does in order to make sure I received the support I needed during a long repair. My husband and I feel that she made all the difference in us getting so many positives out of our birth story.
