Abounding Grace Birth Services
Nashville, TN & Surrounding Cities
Jessica Easter, doula and owner of Abounding Grace Birth Services, believes that birth is a spiritual experience. Her interest in reproduction, maternal health, and birth developed at a young age. Her passion in preventing women from having traumatic experiences stems from her own unnerving labor in 2011. She recognizes how imperative it is for women, especially those of color, to have proper maternal support before, during, and after birth.
Her mission is to mitigate maternal health disparities by educating, encouraging, and empowering women to make informed birth decisions while yielding the physical, mental, and emotional support that is necessary to preserve powerful and positive labor experiences.
Jessica received professional birth doula training from DONA International. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from a university in southern Arkansas where she was born and raised. She now resides in middle Tennessee with her family. You can contact her at AboundingGraceBirth@gmail.com
Jessica believes that every woman deserves a doula. Her focus is on teaching pregnant women how to perceive "pain", and how to overcome fears in order to experience a less intense labor. Her passion is to educate, encourage, and empower women and their partners to make informed birth decisions all while providing them with the physical, mental, and emotional support that is needed to achieve the birthing experience they deserve! Jessica serves Davidson, Rutherford, and Williamson County, TN. Contact Jessica at AboundingGraceBirth@gmail.com.

Amazing Doula! Choose Jessica!
I found her on a website and the first time we met I knew that she was the Doula for me! She radiates Joy and she is so personable. I felt so comfortable and completely loved and cared for by Jessica. The Experience leading up to the birth was great! She was always available by phone or text. When I went into labor she was there as soon as I got to the birth center and stayed with me the entire time until an hour or so after the baby was born and she massaged my back and legs and feet and brought essential oils and encouraged me and brought me water and food and helped me find new birth positions. I could be at peace because Jessica knew my ideal birthing situation and she was my advocate . Having Jessica there also allowed my husband to be fully present with me and also feel like he did not have to bear the entire burden of helping me through Labor. You should get Jessica because she’s amazing!
A true gift
Jessica is truly a gift from God. From our first meeting, I knew that God sent her to help me through my birth, before I even knew how hard it would be. I was admitted for an induction 10-31-19 and Jessica was there later that night to check in on me. After laboring unsuccessfully for over 48 hours, I opted to have a c-section on 11-02-19. Jessica was there with me in the OR helping me cope with my birth plan being turned completely upside down. I ended up having some complications and had to go back to the OR. When I returned to the room, who was there? Jessica. She went above and beyond her duties and I am so happy that she was in my birthing process. I would recommend her 1000 times over. If you use her, you will be truly blessed. Thank you again for everything!!
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.
