From the first interview with this wonderful family I felt we would be a great fit working together. They agreed and hired me, as their postpartum doula, to support them after the birth of their second baby.
Kristen in Rochester Hills, Michigan is an amazing mother, and I am so appreciative of the time she took to share her thoughts about hiring me as her postpartum doula,
“Following the birth of my first child I struggled during those early days with a new baby. I loved my son immensely but I was struggling to enjoy those early days with him. I was overwhelmed and anxious about this new roll in life.
When I got pregnant with our second child I knew I wanted that very special time, following her birth, to be different. A friend recommended Jill and from the first time I met her I knew she would be an amazing support for our family.
Because of Jill, the first few months after our daughter was born were filled with more joy than anxiety, more smiles than tears and she helped me find an overall confidence with now being the mother of two.
As is very common during those early days everyone (including myself) was focused on the baby and on my son… as they should be.
However, Jill was there to focus on me and make sure I was ok. She helped me take time to take care of myself, so I could better care for my children.
She has a way of making you comfortable from the very beginning.
The first time she came over I talked to her like I had known her for years. I will forever be grateful to her for helping me really enjoy those early days with two children. That is a time you can never get back and she helped make it so special.
Not only do I tell friends who are pregnant to hire a Postpartum Doula but if they live in the area I tell them to call Jill.
In one sentence she is AMAZING!”
Moms are my top priority as a postpartum doula. I believe, and have seen in practice many times, the value in caring for a mother. As a mother myself, I know that when I have my needs met, it is much easier to care for my family. I love that in my work as a postpartum doula, I get to offer that support to other women.
