Testimonial for Jackie Prescott

Jackie was such a wonderful support before/during/after the birth of our second child. During my labor (at GW), her instincts for what my husband and I might need were spot on and her calm, gentle suggestions were very productive in advancing my labor. After the birth, she stayed with us for a while and coached us through everything happening, which allowed my husband and I to relax and more fully enjoy our first moments with our baby. Her advice then (and her text support afterwards) helped us successfully navigate our time in the hospital and at home.

During my pregnancy and the postpartum period, Jackie--and the whole District Doulas team--provided tailored support that was very sensitive to our specific concerns (for example, around juggling child care needs for our first child when welcoming our second) and decision points (for example, around induction). The advice offered was always practical and nuanced and helped us make decisions we felt were right for us.

Because I had a relatively fast, uncomplicated, unmedicated first birth, my husband and I hadn't been sure about whether to use doula support for our second. I'm so glad we did. My second birth progressed similarly, and Jackie's support was invaluable in helping us approach everything calmly and confidently.
