Jess was a true guiding light for me in what felt like the darkest night of my life. It was my first birth and my partner and I both felt like fish out of water. We were in the hospital and as much as we prepared, there was nothing that could have prepared us for that experience. Jess guided me through every single contraction that night and to say she helped me through is an understatement. She kept my head above water; stopping me from panicking and drowning (no joke). Her presence was grounded and steady; something familiar and comforting in a place where I felt scared and unsure. When I started to panic, she brought me back to the moment and acted like a grounding rod. I can't stress enough what an amazing doula she is. She offered so much support after the birth as well, coming over and answering ALL my questions. I highly recommend her as your doula. She is so committed to this work and it shows.
A huge shoutout to Jess at ConsciousNest Doula Care! With all of the “firsts” we’ve experienced over the last 9 months, it was a welcome relief to have Jess' support and encourage us throughout our entire journey. Our working relationship quickly developed into a friendship, which then seemed to transform into a joining of spirits while I laboured. Jess was so intuitive, knowing exactly what I (or Jeremy) needed at precisely the right moment. Through all the highs and lows, at all hours of the day and night, both at home and in the hospital, Jess was calm, focused and entirely in her element. So much so that doctors and nurses were referring her services on the spot! It was an incredibly positive experience and we are beyond grateful.
A huge thank-you to Jess for everything she has done for me and my little family. I highly recommend her services. She is knowledgeable, has amazing positive energy, and it was an absolute joy to have her at the birth of my little boy.
The support she gave helped me get through PPD and a lot of anxiety over giving birth. Through out the labor she talked me through and helped me change focus which In turn made my birth better than I could have ever expected.
