When we met Jacquie for the first time we were looking for some sleep and help with our one week newborn son. We never could have imagined the incredible woman she is and how much she’s helped us in many areas. My wife had experienced postpartum emotional complications with our first child and we thought we would be more prepared the second time. When that time came she had a difficult child birth and it took a toll on my wife both physically and mentally.

Jacquie was a breath of fresh air who would show up nightly prepared with information to help guide us and educate us regarding what we were going through. She would listen to our daily concerns and engage us in great conversation. She wouldn’t tell us what to do as most people would. She would let us talk freely and we would talk about our daily struggles and successes’ which would make us feel much better.

Jacquie also gave my wife an amazing amount of emotional support. Jacquie being a mother could empathize, where I could not. Jacquie works with a great doula network that helped train her and educated her on the resources out there for new mothers. Not only did Jacquie support my wife but also me as well. As a father of a newborn I had a lot of new responsibilities added to go along with helping more with our 2 year old, job, and emotional support for my wife. Jacquie would ask how I was doing with everything, which was unexpected. She provided me with a website for dad’s with wives who were experiencing postpartum emotional complications.

She would also leave encouraging notes for my wife and also research any questions my wife had. It wasn’t Wikipedia info either . She would find the sources of her research and give us great information so we could make an educated decision. Jacquie was a blessing to our whole family and we’re sure she will be to yours as well!

Becoming a mother is a true miracle but also it is a big stress. Labor doesn’t always go smoothly and can be very traumatic for a mother and for a child. That’s why it’s very important to get right care and support in postpartum period. I am a mother of a preemie. And it was very hard for me not to loose my milk supply when my baby was at the NICU. When Jacquie started working with us my breastfeeding routine was very unorganized. I wasn’t producing enough milk, so I had to substitute with formula. And I was certain that it will always be like that. But Jacquie helped to believe that It is possible to stop using formula and get a good milk supply. She encouraged me to breastfeed more and use a bottle less, and not to give up when my daughter was getting fussy and didn’t want to latch. She was so used to a bottle already and also she was not strong enough to latch long enough. With Jacquie’s help I was able to achieve my goal as to breastfeed exclusively.
Also Jacquie was very helpful with finding right specialist for my daughter and for me. I wish I started using her help while I was pregnant. I could avoid many problems that way.
Jacquie is very professional and also caring person. She loves what she is doing and I think she really enjoys helping new moms. She provided me help and support that I really needed. Thank you very much for everything!!!
