What is a doula?
A doula, also known as a birth companion, birth coach, or post-birth supporter, is a non-medical person who assists a woman, and her family, before, during, or after childbirth, to provide emotional support and physical help.
A postpartum doula provides evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, basic newborn care, and more. A postpartum doula is there to help a new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby. Research shows that moms, dads and babies have an easier time with this transition if a good support team is in place.
Jessica is an incredibly talented photographer and an amazing doula. She is so professional and wise beyond her years. She is reliable and extremely hard-working. Often times she's our go to for a variety of tasks because she has such a can-do attitude. She photographed the birth of our son Alister and did an amazing job. It was priceless having someone there to capture these moments and to take the coordination off of me. We continue to use her as our family photography and treasure the lasting relationship we've formed with her. I enthusiastically recommend her.
