What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

They love us and we love them!

Jessica was very supportive all throughout my pregnancy, birth, and post-partum periods. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes every effort to be available any time you need her. I highly recommend Jessica as a doula!

Alison Lebien

I chose Emily and her partner as my birth doula team because they seemed like people I would want to be friends with. They were personable and knowledgeable throughout the entire process – before, during, and after labor. I was also very pleased with the respect they showed my husband. Emily really encouraged his participation in the labor process and provided him some simple suggestions as labor progressed. I was really glad I hired Emily as my birth doula!

Lindy Snethen

Jessica is amazing, and I can’t recommend her highly enough! She is compassionate, professional, very knowledgeable, and dedicated to her clients. I had a somewhat unusual labor which I was completely unprepared for, and there is no way it would have gone as well as it did without her help. I truly believe her presence made all the difference! She devoted a great deal of time to us and was incredibly flexible and reliable. She helped calm our nerves and gave us the confidence we needed. I am so glad that I decided to hire a doula, and even more thankful that I found Jessica.
