What our clients say

"It is always scary when entering the unknown of child birth. No matter how many videos or reading is done in preparation it is always with a scary nervousness. This is where Jessica came in and helped us tremendously. Not only did she explain and talk to us about our plan, but made sure that the hospital staff understood what we wanted and was followed. She laid out the good and bad of every decision. She stood besides my wife and me in our 32 hour journey. Jessica was a god sent and I appreciate the importance of a good doula."

"Without Jessica, I’m not sure I would have been able to have my daughter naturally. She was an immense help during my labor and very skilled in multiple techniques for natural pain relief. She relieved much of my stress during the whole birth process by being able to skillfully answer many questions and worries I had. My husband said after the birth that he was SO glad we had Jessica there and that we really had needed her, and were so glad with our choice to use her! I would DEFINITELY recommend Jessica to any and everyone, no matter what kind of birth you want. She is amazing!"
