“Jessica was so much help to my husband and me during the time leading up to and during the birth of our son. She has a seemingly endless supply of energy, love and knowledge for the birth process. Her demeanor was so warm and inviting that we found ourselves hoping that she would remain a part of our lives for long after the birth. She was a wonderful support person for us after the birth. I really cannot say enough about how wonderful and helpful Jessica has been to me. I am thankful for having found her!”

“I’m not sure how we would have made it through the 40 hours of labor without her. Jessica helped to keep us focused and grounded during the longest two days of my life. She also did a great job prepping us for the birth. Thanks to her, I felt prepared and confident. I already have and will continue to recommend her services and expertise.”

“From my very first phone conversation with Jessica, I felt her support and compassion. She went above and beyond any expectations I had and there was no way I would have made it through those difficult postpartum weeks without her. She took the initiative to take care of things around the house so that I could rest and wake up to an orderly, nurtured environment. She me a range of ways to care for my daughter from calming and soothing, breastfeeding, and even how to pack my diaper bag! She is an amazing listener, calming presence and has a great sense of humor - all crucial characteristics for a support person when you’re recovering postpartum. “

“Arriving home with newborn identical twin boys was a bit daunting and we were not sure what to expect. Jessica was our angel! Her knowledge and expertise were a comfort and made us feel at ease. Her personality is terrific and she could not have been more supportive and respectful. Jessica was able to teach us how to feel more confident and capable of caring for our newborn twins. We would recommend Jessica to anyone!”

– Jennifer

“Jessica is knowledgeable, confident and extremely reassuring. During the birth, she helped me maximize the potential of each contraction by using her voice, helping me to breathe effectively and using touch to help me relax my body. In the days that followed, Jessica spent time debriefing the experience with my husband and me. We had several conversations that were wonderful and helpful.  I also learned so much about after care, including nursing. It seems almost criminal to think that all women don’t have doula support!”
