Testimonial for Jenn Edmonds

Hiring Jenn as our doula was the best decision we made for our first baby's birth in March 2022. Jenn is so warm, compassionate, funny, supportive, smart, and organized. My husband and I are both very Type A and attentive to detail, and Jenn was an invaluable part of our team. During our prenatal visits, she made sure we had all our bases covered in thinking through various decisions we might encounter during birth, and she provided great evidence-based resources to help us think those through. I must have texted her dozens of times throughout pregnancy with a gazillion kinds of questions, and she even sent me an example baby registry she had made to help us put ours together. When our due date came and went, she was so patient and supportive, ready to spring into action multiple times when I thought I was in labor. 

She was so amazing during my hospital birth and played a huge role in my mostly unmedicated birth. In early labor, she used hip squeezes to help me manage contractions and also supported my husband while he cared for me. My active labor was hard with really long contractions, and I was out of it, so I relied pretty heavily on my husband to communicate with my care team and make decisions. Jenn did a great job helping him understand what was going on and our options. I also really valued our postpartum visit, when she provided a really loving and meaningful account of my birth from her perspective, and our debrief helped me get closure.

I also asked Jenn to do two overnight visits about two weeks postpartum while my husband was out of town. I got the best sleep of the early postpartum time period during her stay! It was such a relief to hand off responsibility for diaper changes, timing feeds, and soothing my baby to Jenn, and all I had to do was feed her when Jenn would wake me. I really enjoyed talking with Jenn during feeding sessions -- she's funny and down to earth and we got along great. She is a baby whisperer!
