Testimonial for Jill Magoffin CD(DONA)

Jill Magoffin is worth her weight in gold! I was forunate to have Jill as my doula during labor and after birth. Jill lived with us 24/7 for about one month after we came home from the hospital.

When I became pregnant, my mother encouraged me to have a doula. I was apprehensive at first because I thought I could do it all on my own and I did not want to have another cost. After the discussions with my mother, I spoke to my doctor. I was given Jill's name. I interviewed Jill and two other doulas. I knew I wanted Jill as my doula given her personality, education, experience, thought process, energy and passion for this job. However, I ended up getting so much more from Jill. Jill is warm, genuine and she takes the time to truly get to know you and learn what is important to you. Jill is beyond any text book as a newborn care specialist. When Jill left after living with us, I was saddened but I also felt confident simultaneously. Jill not only taught me so much about the safety of a newborn, but she helped me to establish somewhat of a routine.  If you do not like something she is doing, Jill does not take it offensively. Her job is to educate you but at the end of the day, it is your decision (even if you have had a baby before, please note that newborn care safety has changed even in recent years). 

As a first time mother (and a single mother), I owe a lot to Jill because she made this transition for me so much easier than had I decided not to have a doula. As cheesy as it sounds, it is one of the best financial decisions I have made. I am a local attorney and I have already referred her to a colleague. My family and I still talk about how great Jill was and how much she helped me. At one point I am pretty sure my father said, "See if she can stay longer!"  Words do not do justice the impact Jill had as my doula.
