Testimonials

Photo: Megan Taylor I was worried a doula would be a waste of money.  After all, with me, the midwives, and family present, why would we need another helper?  What became clear to me from the very beginning is that this was the best money we’ve ever spent.  In all honesty, Jessica should be charging more than she does.  When we hire her for our next baby’s birth, I will be paying her more than her going rate.  That isn’t a joke or hyperbole – she is fantastic and deserves every penny (and more). Thanks Jessica; we can’t thank you enough for your integrity, compassion and knowledge.  We wouldn’t dream of having our next baby without you.

“We had a wonderful birth thanks to Jessica. I would never have been able to have such an experience without her ! She knew instinctively what to say and do to relieve and relax me… She has a real gift! She took care of me in an amazing way, was here to help my partner feel comfortable and even stayed 5 hours with us once our baby girl was born. She was such an amazing help that I can’t even imagine having another baby without Jessica… so her trip to France is already planned for my next birth!”

“Overall, Jessica was always a phone call/e-mail away and her support meant the world to me during my pregnancy/birth experience. They say that the biggest birth complications comes from the mother being stressed. I can confidently say that Jessica’s expertise and support reduced my stressed greatly and turned what could have been a stressful experience into a great one.” – Ashley

Thank you for your breath, your humour  your intuitive support. Thank you for holding the gas thing for me, for fetching us sandwiches on the first bewildering day after, for guiding Eric to breathe with me and sensing when i could only focus on him (this gave us a beautiful moment in our relationship). Also, being able to laugh and chat in between contractions did wonders to help me gather my strength for the next round. Jessica, you’re truly a wonderful resource for nervous new parents like us! We are forever grateful to you for helping to make the birth of our daughter more relaxed, positive and fun. I will never forget the moment she entered the world and being surrounded by positive, loving and supportive people – thank you!! – Charito, Eric & Amelie

“My husband and I were very lucky to have Jessica as part of our team in preparing for the birth of our daughter, Poppy Jo. She was entirely reliable, professional and accommodating with respect to our busy schedules. The energy and enthusiasm she brought to each of our meetings leading up to the birth was infectious. Jessica is extremely knowledgeable about the entire birth process along with the political issues that have historically accompanied it. She always supported her insights with suggestions for further reading and learning. Perhaps one of the things I appreciated the most about Jessica’s counsel and support was that she provided it without judgement. In the end, she genuinely wants to help empower women to make birth choices that are the best fit for them. Thank you Jessica! “– Sherry, Bobby and Poppy Jo

We knew right away Jessica was someone that we wanted to work with. Over the entire pregnancy she was very professional, very warm, and extremely supportive and she made herself available to answer questions and at times put our mind at ease. Over all we can not say enough good things about her and how valuable she was to helping us bring our son into the world. She was our rock when we needed her the most and we can’t imagine what the whole experience would have been without her by our side.”  – Roger & Amanda

“I truly feel if it wasn’t for Jessica and her ability to help us navigate some really emotional moments, we might not of had the vaginal birth that we intended…Before having our beautiful baby, who is now 7 months old and incredibly healthy, I would have never thought of the inclusion of a doula. I was a skeptic but supportive of my partners wishes as I knew the birth should be a compliment to her needs. Looking back now I have realized my surprise in the end of our birth how much a doula can help the father as much as she helps the mother, especially in moments when your emotions are all over the place. It always helps to have a second pair of eyes in a situation where a team environment can make a lot of difference. Jessica really helped our little family make it and pull through unscarred, ready for life and all of its little challenges.” – Brayden

Thank you so much for your help and support. Your time, knowledge and presence was very much appreciated! You definitely made labour and delivery manageable, especially keeping me in line with the breathing and giving me back massages. The whole experience is what I would call “epic” and memorable and I’m glad I had you there to be with us along the way.” – Karen and Eric

“Thank you so much for being our doula. We are so grateful for your knowledge and support. We felt comfortable and confident having you by our side. We also really appreciate your working within our budget in order to have this great experience with you. Thank you!” – G & J.
