“Jessica was the first doula my husband and I interviewed, and after meeting her we knew we found our doula! And we have no regrets or negative feedback for her. She was very thorough in getting to know us, the birth we envisioned, our preferences, and all that important stuff. She also gave us detailed tips and advice for everything pregnancy, delivery, and baby-related. Her doula work itself on labor day was superb. She was always at attention to me during every contraction, and gave the best hip squeezes which truly took the edge off of every painful contraction. She was also very helpful to my husband, and helped him take an active part in laboring for this baby. Unfortunately, my birth took a different course than we expected, but Jessica was very supportive the whole way through. She even made an intuitive call that was arguably life-saving for the baby! Besides all this, she is an amazing person and someone our family would now call a friend. She values the personal relationships that can be built from the birthing experience, and she says it’s all worth it in the end to see a happy family with a brand new baby. I couldn’t recommend her enough, and I will surely be asking her to be our doula again in the future!"

“After delivering our baby girl we quickly realized how very different my labor and delivery could have gone had we not hired Jessica. She went above and beyond, and surpassed all our expectations to make sure we had the best possible outcome. Her dedication to both my husband and I was unbelievable, she didn’t miss one contraction, jumped at every one of my requests and was always one step ahead. With the hospital staff, she was the perfect balance of professionalism and persistence. We can’t thank her enough! She has our highest recommendation!"

❤️“Jessica was absolutely necessary in my husband and I's birthing experience. She was present when we needed her, and she gave encouraging love and care throughout the process. She was able to coach my husband in the dynamic dance of birth and helped me breath and be calm in the most difficult of times. My baby Blakely was able to come into this world as trauma free and natural as possible and this would not have been possible without Jessica and her services. I encourage all soon to be moms in using doula services in your birthing experience, and would strongly recommend Jessica for this key role"

“Jessica was amazing! Absolutely the empowering support I needed during and before, and after labor. Very hands on with massage, essential oils, and talking me through stages of labor and following my birth plan to a t. She was there in the trenches with me through the ups and downs (and there were both!) of labor. She was not afraid to advocate for me when things took a rough turn and the nurse hesitated to call the Dr. ,she nudged the nurse to do so (but did so without crossing boundaries or stepping on toes). She helped my husband to be even more involved in physically supporting me. She is very on top of communication and checking in during pregnancy too. Overall very prepared and confident. I highly recommend Jessica!!

“We cannot stress just how much we appreciated working with Jessica as we prepared to welcome our first child into this world. I hadn’t given much thought to my labor experience until late into my pregnancy where we were already stressing about getting a doula and trying to find a birth class well into my third trimester. Luckily, Jessica was available and agreed to be our doula. Jessica met with us twice before the birth and once after to check in on us. Our meetings made me feel a bit more empowered about the labor and recovery process as well as becoming a new parent. Jessica also added an extra measure of comfort during the labor process for my husband as well. You’d be lucky to have Jessica as your doula!"

“Jessica was my labor Doula for my first baby and she was wonderful. She was easy to reach, very professional, and compassionate about the work that she does. She provided me with lots of information which was very helpful as a first time mom as well as gave me words of advice and encouragement. During the pregnancy she tended to me and my husband as we worked through the process naturally at Sutter birthing center. She stayed with us for a few hours after the birth and gave additional support in the days and weeks after my delivery. I am beyond grateful for the support she gave us during this crazy time. I would gladly recommend her services to all and can’t wait to work with her again in the future."

“Empowering. Kind. Gentle. Funny. Real. Passionate. Steadfast. Supporting. Loving. These are just a few words that describe Jessica. She was my doula for my second child 16 days ago and hiring her was absolutely the best choice I could have made. She helped me feel more empowered than I can even describe and through talking with her I gained the ability to make some decisions that I otherwise most likely wouldn't have...Ok I could literally write a book about how amazing she is! I wholeheartedly recommend Jessica as a doula. If you plan on a hospital birth, also know that she meshes completely perfectly with the nurses and doctors at the hospital. I had several nurses tell me later that she was "the kind of doula we love to have here" because of the way she didn't try to push them around and rather provided loving support.”
