Jessica, the doula, ROCKS!
Omg, what can I say about my doula, Jessica from Abounding Grace Birth Services? Let me start by saying she was a “God send.” Jessica and I attend church together but I had no idea she was a doula. We met at a couple’s date night, and I overheard her speaking to other friends and immediately tuned in. This was indeed a big moment for me as I had been praying for God to connect me to a doula because I didn’t know where to search. I did not want any kind of doula… I wanted a God appointed and anointed doula, if you know what I mean. When I tell you Jessica has been all that to me plus more, and I really mean it. Here are the reasons why Jessica is hands down the best doula EVER!!!! First…she is 100% sensitive to the spirit; therefore she receives wisdom on how to be sensitive and attentive to the needs of her clients. She has such a sweet way about her… she knows when to speak and when to execute. She is very observant and can tell what her clients need even before they ever say a word. Secondly… she gives 100 percent and her passion runs deep. It is evident that being a doula is not just something to do but ministry for her. She is “all in” with her clients and shows support every step of the way. For her, it is not about telling her clients what to do but listening to understand their needs and then acting accordingly. Thirdly…. Jessica knows how to set an atmosphere. To have a doula that brings peace and serenity to a birthing room is so necessary. During the laboring process with my son, I can still here Jessica’s sweet voice in my ear saying, “Take a deep breath” and “You’re doing so good.” In those moments I knew that I could finish as peace and serenity enveloped me. In those moments I became even more appreciative to have a spirit filled doula who was just as interested in my supernatural child birthing process as I was. Preparing for the birth of my son was such a sweet experience for me, and I have to credit my doula for the part she played. We had home visits that were both educational and technique driven. She was always patient, never in a rush, and interested in getting to know us on a “heart” level. After delivery of our son, Jessica did home visits to check in with parents and baby and to see if we needed anything. Jessica is always ready and willing to go beyond the “call of duty” for her clients. We love our doula and look forward to working with her for the birth of our second child. When the time comes, it’s going to be ever better… to know Jessica is to know that there are always greater things in store. Jessica is my doula that ROCKS!!
Supportive and genuine personality!
Early on in pregnancy, I knew I wanted to hire a doula. As a young, black woman, I am aware of the statistics of lack of quality care provided to black women surrounding maternal health. I knew that working with a doula would help cultivate and protect the birth that I desired and deserved.
Jessica has such a gentle spirit and a servant’s heart. From the first day we met her, I knew she would advocate for me and my choices. I love how her energy just kind of “matched” perfectly with what my husband and I were searching for in a doula.
Long story short, my delivery did not go exactly as planned due to factors outside of our control. My husband and I had to make some tough decisions during a high-stress time and very long labor.
It was so helpful to have someone there by my side when my husband needed a break or simply to provide extra hands. They worked together as an excellent team! She held my hand through contractions, made sure I stayed hydrated, encouraged me to try different positions, rubbed my back, and showered me with positive affirmations during moments of frustration. Just to name a few.
I can’t think of one reason why I would not hire her as a doula, or hire a doula in general. The relationship my husband and I built with Jessica over the course of my pregnancy did not end at the delivery of our son, I feel like we have gained her as a friend for years to come.
Words can not express how grateful we were to have you as our Doula. We initially thought midwives and doulas were the same thing, but oh no ma’am, you have delivered an unforgettable service that states otherwise. I knew from the beginning that once we connected as spiritual sisters in Christ, that trusting you to be my Doula would be all worth it. We are also thankful for you snapping beautiful memories of our daughter’s birth. I am sure that mother’s have appreciated this kind, thoughtful, and unexpected gesture from you. Especially those who don’t have photographers in the room. So much is going on in those present moments and surprise, you managed to support, massage, and encourage me while taking the time to capture my most precious moments. You exceeded beyond my husband and I expectations. Your services were EVERYTHING!
We humbly thank you and will always recommend Abounding Grace!
