Jacquie started supporting my husband and I shortly after our daughter was born and I can’t imagine anyone better. She listened withouth judgement and centered all of her support around the wellbeing of my daughter and I. Her support was transformative in how she continually affirmed me in my evolution into motherhood, and gave me confidence in this new existence. Most of all though, I trusted her. Not only with my daughter, but I also trusted that she would meet my vulnerability with kindness and compassion. And she did. From the first moment I met Jacquie I felt that she was not only practical and unflappable, but also deeply caring and protective. She continued to support us for several months and I was so grateful every day that she was with us. I can’t imagine those early months without her and credit her with making me a more confident and competent mother now. Thank you Jacquie! ~Mimi, 2019
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!
