To be completely honest,
I thought doulas were for women with unsupportive or disinterested
partners. After our experience with Jamie, I could not have
been more wrong. She was incredibly kind, calm, and the
perfect compliment to the support I provided to my wife during her
labor. I found Jamie to be an expert in helping me support my
wife. From being a second set of hands to provide counter pressure, to
passing me a cold cloth when my wife was hot, Jamie knew just how to
assist without ever being intrusive.
I cannot recommend Jamie strongly enough.

Thank you so
much. The money we spent on your doula services today was some of the
best money I've ever spent in my life!

we started working
with Jamie, my husband and I were
very apprehensive about giving birth.
were initially considering a planned C-section because of our fears. Neither of us felt
comfortable about medical
procedures or being in the hospital environment.
For these reasons, we decided it would be
good for us to have a doula assist us during the birth.
We interviewed several doulas before speaking
with Jamie. After
our meeting, we knew
immediately that we wanted to work with her.
We were impressed by her knowledge and
experience as a birth doula and
felt very comfortable talking to her.
water broke during our second meeting with Jamie.
Talk about prefect timing!
Jamie helped guide us through the whole birth
process from our home to the hospital.
We felt a tremendous relief just knowing that
we had her there by our sides. We
ended up needing to use Pitocin to induce
labor, which caused my contractions to intensify greatly. Jamie was there to talk me
pain. She was my
focal point during
those painful contractions. It
important personal goal to reach 6 cm before receiving an epidural, and
helped me do this. I
know things would
have gone far differently if she wasn’t there to coach me through it. Our birth experience was
times, but more amazing than we could have ever imagined. We are so thankful for
Jamie’s assistance in
making our daughter’s birth so special.
We can’t imagine having done it without her
there. I would
highly recommend Jamie to anyone
looking for a doula.
