If you're wondering if you should hire, Jocelyn consider this another sign! ;)

I am a first time mom who gave birth to a beautiful baby boy Nov, 2023. I had an easy pregnancy, work in Healthcare, and did a TON of prep/research prior to giving birth so I expected to have a smooth delivery.  Unfortunately, after 16 or 17hrs of laboring at home, my midwife team and I decided to transfer to the hospital due to malpositioning of my cervix & baby's head that was causing swelling and unmanageable pain. 

I am SO thankful we had Jocelyn as a doula for this unexpected change in our birth plan! She stayed with us for 24hrs through early labor at home, the decision on whether to go to the birth center or stay home, & eventually the decision to transfer to the hospital for pain relief/repositioning and eventually (after 5hrs of Spinning Babies)a successful vaginal delivery. Even though my birth didn't go as planned, it still felt beautiful and positive because I felt empowered, in control of the decisions, and supported by my team (husband, Jocelyn, midwives, nurses) the whole way through. 

Jocelyn advocated for me and my birth plan wishes both with the midwives and in the hospital. She helped give physical comfort and emotional support during a very intense time! I have clear memories of her coaching me to push when the time came and it helped me so much knowing she thought I could do it at a time when I was so tired and wasn't sure if I could make it!

On top of being an amazing support, she took some Incredible photos of the birth! I will treasure these photos forever! 

Thank you, Jocelyn!

Doulas are really amazing and worth the investment! Believe me! ;)
