Testimonial for Selah Birth Services of Texas

Jaci has been my postpartum doula since October 2022. She came to me as a referral from my birth doula who had heard good things about Jaci from another doula who's client had PPD/PPA. When I called her asking for overnight help I was deep in the throes of PPD to the point of suicidal ideation. Our first phone consultation I answered crying and she took it in stride, eased my anxiety, and insisted she come over that night to ensure my husband and I got some rest. Unfortunately my PPD worsened and she didn't hesitate to take on 4x/week of overnight help as I was shortly after hospitalized. My husband and father ended up taking care of my 3 week old son during my hospitalization, and after some cheeky comments about how "We don't need a night nanny to help, your Mom did this herself with you!" My father turned a new leaf after only 1 night with Jaci in our home. As he said, "The second she walked in that door, I knew she would take good care of your baby".

It is now January 2023 and Jaci is still doing overnights for us as my son transitions out of the swaddle. She helped him eventually sleep through the night. We even had her spend a week or two in our home during the day to help sleep train our son. Jaci is on her way to a sleep consultation certification and in a short week helped our son (and me) get his naps under control. During the time she also gave me the time and space to adjust dosages of my medication I am taking for my PPD. It was a huge help to know that I had her there during the day to rest while I eventually figured out my perfect dosage. 

At this point, Jaci is family. She has literally met all of my family, watched my son grow up, and spent many hours almost as my therapist as I tackled becoming a new mother. I know for a fact that she prays for me and my family regularly and simply can't recommend her enough as a doula.
