“I hired Jodi originally as I knew I would need support after the birth of our daughter, given that all my family lives on the west coast. I wasn’t really sure what it was that I needed, given I was a first-time mom, but Jodi put me at ease from our very first visit together. She was kind, thoughtful, fun and extremely sensitive given the hormonal swings I was experiencing. She was a massive support in my difficult breastfeeding journey, which included a shortage of milk, mastitis and lots of tears of frustration. Jodi was nurturing, loving and was there for me, at my most vulnerable time. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again, especially given she is now a dear friend.”

“On my first night home with my daughter I called Jodi at 1 in the morning. I was crying. The baby was crying. I had no idea why she couldn’t latch. I was scared. Jodi’s response was everything I needed it to be and epitomized the care and compassion I received from her in the following months as my postpartum doula. She was calm and help me be calm. She gave advice and guidance free from judgment. Her demeanor with me and my baby was joyful and patient. She was passionate about care for women and helping me navigate my postpartum needs and feelings. She helped me feel secure in motherhood during what was likely my most vulnerable time in life both emotionally and physically. Her expertise and referrals helped me manage breastfeeding and diagnose my daughter’s tongue-tie when our pediatrician could or would not. Breastfeeding was one of my main goals and I’ll forever be grateful she helped me achieve that. We have remained close over the years and I continue to wholeheartedly recommend her to friends.”

“Jodi was a lifesaver during the fourth trimester and beyond! Her calm support, patient listening, and flexible troubleshooting was so important to help our family adjust to our new rhythms, especially after a complicated labor. Jodi balances helping immediate needs and teaching and coaching to manage without her in the future. She taught us so much and we recommend post-partum doula support to all of our friends planning to grow their family!”

“We couldn’t have done it without Jodi. She taught us how to take care of our newborn and ourselves. She has a wonderful presence, makes delicious food, a great sense of humor and is an incredible teacher. Work with her! She’s amazing.”
