“Published data indicates that one of the most effective tools to improve
labor & delivery outcomes is the continuous presence of support personnel such as a Doula.”
-American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology March, 2014
“Jessica was an absolute Godsend before, during and after my pregnancy. Not only did she provide clinical information and statistics about various birthing options, but most importantly provided the emotional support I really needed as I was preparing to become a Mama for the first time. All the nerves that come with childbirth were soothed because I knew I had Jessica in my corner. I would recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a Doula! Best decision we made.” -Arianna
