Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Our friends have asked us the single best decision we made about our birth plan that we'd recommend to others, and our answer is always the same: hiring District Doulas. Jackie and the District Doulas team have been the most-valuable resource we could have posssibly asked for. It's hard to imagine our experience as first-time parents if we had not had them by our side.

From the first call with the DD team and accessing the resources they provided, we knew we had found a team who was caring, thoughtful, experienced, flexible, knowledgable, and non-judgemental. We learned information from them we never knew we needed, and they answered every question we posed at any time. We quickly learned to lean on them to prepare us for labor and parenthood.

Our daughter was induced three weeks early; as soon as we made that decision (and even as we were considering it), Jackie was our guide and confidant through the process up until and after birth. She made a stressful and scary induction process mangeable and understandable, not just giving us a road map but also navigating us through every turn. We communicated with her consistently for days in whatever method we chose, and then once she joined us at Sibley her tips and advice helped shorten and ease the active labor process. And when complications arose after the birth, she helped mother and father both -- advocating for us, answering our questions, and helping out however she could. From the major tasks like helping us making important clinical decisions to the smallest ones like packing up our stuff and bringing it to recovery, Jackie was there at every step.

The District Doulas team tell us they were "always our doulas" and have urged us to continue using them for questions and needs, and it was hard for us to believe they truly meant it until we took them up on it. They've reamained by our side since the birth and have been invaluable.

We cannot recommend them highly enough.
