“I hired Jennifer when I discovered that I would be having a C-section. I thought from all of the other doulas that I interviewed, Jennifer was sweet, kind, and flexible with my needs and my schedule. Originally, I thought I would only need her for 2-4 weeks but I ended up having her take care of my son 3x/week for overnights for nearly 2 months and I would have had her longer as well if I could have.
She instantly connected with my son and was able to soothe him quickly. She provided good pointers to me as a first-time mom on how to take care of him and soothe him; she washed bottles and prepared bottles as necessary; she offered to help with preparing meals and laundry, especially the first month when I was not able to walk or move easily from the C-section. Because I did not have family in Seattle that could help, I found Jennifer to be indispensable. Without her help, I would not have gotten through the most joyous time of my life and also the most challenging as a first time Mom.”
“Jen was great and she comes highly recommended. With a busy husband and a baby that needed to eat every two hours or less round the clock I was exhausted and needed some sleep. In addition I had a difficult time breastfeeding and was pumping full time which lead to even more sleep deprivation; when the baby was napping I was pumping or cleaning bottles etc. With family out of town I thought I had no-one, and after many tears and a conversation with my husband we found Jen. There are few who I feel comfortable leaving my baby with. On that list includes my mother and Jen. She was wonderful with our daughter. it was evident she had experience with newborns and was very tuned in to our babies cues. While Jen was here three times a week I was able to sleep soundly knowing Ruth was safe. This needed sleep helped restore my sanity and made the trying newborn phase much easier. We will be calling Jen if we choose to have another little one.”

“Jennifer was absolutely amazing as our Postpartum Doula. We would highly recommend her to any family in need of support for their newborn. She provided our family with much needed support through the nights after bringing our second baby home. We instantly trusted Jennifer to take care of our little guy, she was so great with him and he was immediately comfortable with her. She went above and beyond to help us, adding extra nights as needed and our son had reflux and she researched it and gave us a lot of invaluable suggestions. She also introduced us to a manual therapist to help his reflux and GI issues. We loved Jennifer’s warm demeanor, always positive vibe, and thoughtful approach to supporting our family. She gave us detailed recaps on the night, which was very helpful. We only wish we could keep her longer! We’re very grateful to Jennifer for all of her help and support and would highly recommend her to anyone in need.”

“Jennifer was so helpful in the first few days and weeks after we brought baby home. She jumped right in and knew what to do and what assistance to offer. She went out of her way to find useful resources for our family. You couldn’t ask for someone more caring and dependable.”
