Jessica Austin is absolutely amazing! I met her and instantly loved her. She is sincerely understanding and compassionate, and hugely involved in the doula and midwifery worlds. She in an activist for women’s birthing rights, trains new doulas and is full of amazing tools and info for birth. Michael and I trusted her 150% with us and our babies! She was the only one who cried with and hugged us when our twins were born. I only wanted to hold Jessica’s hand the whole time I was in labor. I can’t say enough to be honest!” ~Cedar Verdhino, doula client
