My husband and I hired Jaime as our birth and post-partum doula in the South Bay and we're so glad we did!
We had a Zoom interview with Jaime and immediately found her to be very kind and knowledgeable. She was open to our wishes for birth while also offering advice from her experience at many births.
Jaime met with us twice before birth at our home, which was super convenient! She helped us create our birth plan and answered all our questions. She also brought up important questions we hadn't considered previously.
My labor was induced and we asked Jaime to come to the hospital when my contractions got intense. Jaime stayed with us all night and until I had to go for my c-section. She was so helpful through the contractions and offered advice such as getting on the yoga ball. She gave me some coconut water to keep me hydrated.
Our post-partum experience with Jaime was great! We schedule four shifts of four hours each, and she was flexible to the times that worked for my husband and I. She really helped me with breastfeeding, making sure my baby had a correct latch and teaching me different positions. She also walked us through a lot of the "firsts", such as giving our baby a sponge bath. I'm general, Jaime was super helpful in watching the baby so that I was able to do things like taking a shower.
I would recommend Jaime as a doula, especially for first-time parents!
