Hey! I am Jessica Custodio, the Sharing Love Doula. I am a Jesus lover, wife and mother to 4 beautiful children. I share L O V E by supporting families during birth and the postpartum period.
As far back as I can remember I have always been mesmerized by birth! I first witnessed labor and delivery when I was only 12 years old! My mother gave birth to my baby sister, April and that is when I fell in love with tiny humans! It was an indescribable feeling and I knew I wanted more. Tragically, my little sister was born without kidneys; a rare and fatal condition called Potter's Syndrome and passed not long after her birth. I was devastated (I may not have completely understood what was happening at the time) but in that moment I was most concerned with the well-being of my mother and caring for her came naturally!
Through LOSS came my PASSION, an incredible fire was ignited inside of me!
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, I had my VBA2C (vaginal birth after two cesareans). Not long after his birth, another fire ignited that I could not ignore. I discovered my passion: Birth work! 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! Now, let's join together to make your birth and postpartum period remarkable!
