Jessica was with me from when I first found out I was pregnant until after my baby was born. We would meet together and she would answer any of my questions and give me information and exercises to do. I loved that she could help me with all aspects of my pregnancy- the logistics of how to prepare my body and what to expect, and my feelings, fears, and expectations. She helped me through my labor which was very intense because it was my first and I had to be induced due to the laws and not being allowed to go past 42 weeks She knew how to get me induced without medication which was important to me, and gave me exactly what I needed through the whole 16 hours. She massaged me throughout the labor, and used words to relax me through each contraction. Holding my baby the moment he was born was one of the greatest feelings in the world. I am so thankful to Jessica for making my son's entrance into the world beautiful and what I hoped for.
We used Jessica for the birth of our second child. It is almost a year ago that we first met with Jessica. I had recently moved to Irvine and found myself pregnant and needing a midwife. I had used a midwife and birth center with my first but wanted a home birth this time. Jessica was very friendly, knowledgeable and able to help put my husband at ease too. Another huge benefit to choosing Jessica is that she came to me. That was helpful with a toddler but also letting her get use to our home.
She was great with our whole family including our dog. She didn't care where he was during the birth. She was almost always accessible by phone either text or call unless she was in a birth which I seemed to hit a lot but totally understandable as that showed the dedication she would have for me birth.
She was the best the final month as my daughter flipped breech at in December at 36 weeks. She helped guide us to our only option to keep a home birth, Dr Stu. Even though we had to have him there to deliver our daughter she still stayed our midwife and main contact. She gave extra visits to check positioning, drove to Santa Monica to meet with Dr Stu with us, and went the extra mile.
During labor she had essential oils to help, suggestions on positions to increase labor, and was very hands on through the whole time. She was an advocate for what I wanted and help assist Dr Stu with the delivery. I would use Jessica again and highly recommend her. She also is great at our postpartum follow up.
A great midwife and good friend after knowing her a year. She is passionate about helping you achieve your goals and loves on the newborn babies. She makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. We are glad we found her.- Meredith P
I only made the decision of having a doula & midwife in my 9th month, and it was the best decision ever. From the moment I met Jessica, I knew I had made the best choice. She was genuinely caring and supportive throughout pregnancy, birth and after delivery. She was always available to answer any questions and followed up see if there was anything i need. She understood exactly what I wanted and knew what I needed during labor it made my experience a whole lot better! I was relaxed and had peace of mind knowing I had Jessica to be with me during labor. This was my 4th child, and it has been the best birthing experience. I highly recommend Jessica!- Chanie Z.
