Testimonial for Junko Watanabe Ziemba

Junko is a godsend. Every family’s dream. 

She was hired for her postpartum services for baby #3, and I’ll forever be grateful for the invaluable support she provided the past 2 months. Junko has a warmth to her…a calm presence that’s comforting and helpful when one’s emotions are running amok and is like a sleep-deprived zombie. My husband would ask, "Is Junko visiting today?" and if I responded with a yes, we'd both let out a huge sigh of relief. 

I largely attribute my breastfeeding success to her. It was a rough start and had it not been for Junko’s  guidance, I doubt I’d have continued trying. She was always mindful of the fine line between encouragement and pressure, and I never once felt pressured or judged. 

Now, the food. The delicious, nourishing meals. Her concoctions were one of the few things I got excited about every week. My favorites were the miso salmon; chicken, date and ginger soup; banana spinach muffins; golden turmeric ginger squash porridge; Japanese rice soup; and white bean gnocchi.

I miss her terribly, and there have been a few times where I’ve caught myself asking, “What would Junko do?” She is so patient and empathetic. Knowledgeable and sensible. Trustworthy and professional. She is amazing at what she does, and she is equally an amazing and kind human being. If I could, I would fit her inside my pocket and take her everywhere I go! My family and I cannot recommend this doula fairy highly enough.
