I am Jessica Custodio, the Sharing Love Doula. I am a God fearing woman, mother to 4 beautiful children (including my step-son) and the wife to a devoted husband! As someone who's passion is to share L O V E, I am able to by supporting families during child birth and the postpartum period.
As far back as I can remember I have always been mesmerized by pregnancy! I first witnessed labor and delivery when I was only 12 years old! My mother gave birth to my baby sister, April. That is when I fell in love with tiny humans! It was a feeling that I couldn’t describe but knew I wanted more. Sadly, my little sister was born without kidneys; a rare and fatal condition known as Potter's Syndrome. April passed not long after her birth and even though I was devastated and may not have completely understood what was happening; I was most concerned for the well-being of my mother. Supporting my mom though such a difficult time was my only concern. Despite my baby sister gaining her angel wings; I had this incredible fire burning inside of me for all things pregnancy and birth.
Over the past 20 years I have been a part of many more births, including 3 of my own. With a Doula present for my third child Santiago, he was born via VBA2C (vaginal birth after two cesareans). Not long after that, another fire ignited that I could not ignore. Birth became my PASSION! Birth became the one thing I now wanted to divulge my entire self into! And now here I am!
I love pregnancy, labor, birth and BABIES! I am an advocate of Sharing Love and supporting families right where they are! Let's join together to make your birth and postpartum period remarkable!
