Testimonial for Jessi Tully

Jessi was our birth doula for our first child and we would hire her again without a moment's hesitation for any future babies. I planned for a vaginal birth with an epidural. We interviewed several birth doulas and connected with Jessi right away: she was non-judgmental and supportive about the birth I wanted and was well-informed on medical interventions and their pros and cons. When I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, she was helpful in helping us think through when induction would be helpful vs. unnecessarily early. But the real reason we recommend Jessi 100% without reservations is because she guided me through an unexpected, unmedicated birth. Her support was invaluable as early labor spanned several days. When labor progressed rapidly and we arrived at the hospital fully dilated, it became clear that an unmedicated birth might be easier than trying to wait for an epidural. I would have been a lot more panicked about having an unmedicated birth but felt in good hands with Jessi by my side. Her counterpressure made contractions manageable and her coaching was invaluable during the pushing. When I was struggling with pushing and the doctors suggested medical interventions, she briefly described pros and cons of each and and made space for us to decide. Of all the support we received around birth and postpartum, my husband thought Jessi was the most crucial and helpful.
