Testimonial for JESSAMYN KEAR

(Part 1) When my wife and I found out we were pregnant we were elated but also realized that we were quite naïve about all things birthing. My wife and I have been together since high school, moved across the country together and lived together for over a decade. We generally felt that we had a very strong bond and were skeptical about needing a third person to help us with birthing process. However as we got further into the pregnancy we were being bombarded with conflicting and ambiguous advice from different sources. As the father I felt it was my responsibility to help find the answers to our questions and to help provide the information to help my wife and I make the right decisions and to be an effective advocate during labor. We were becoming quite overwhelmed (I was especially) and that’s when we decided together that we needed to look for help. We interviewed with quite a few doulas, but after our first conversation with Jessamyn we knew she was the support we were looking for. She is experienced, supportive, kind and connected. She was basically our private tutor for all things pregnancy and birthing. The thing I really liked about her from our first meeting was that she had hospital, birth center and home birth experience but wasn’t pushing us in any one direction, she was just supportive of us and our plan. At the time were planning a hospital birth but over the months with our research we were more interested in natural births. We really didn’t feel like we could do a home birth in our apartment, it felt weird, what if people heard us in the hallway, ect. At the first home visit she blew us away with her connectedness and flipped our preconceived ideas about what a home birth “should” look like and helped us really feel like we could do this in our home. We are very happy with the decision we made to have a home birth.  (conituned in part 2)
