In addition to doula services, I offer photography to capture these most treasured moments. From maternity through your baby's milestones I can be there every step of the way. From the growing belly to their first birthday you can customize a package that works for you.
When we ended up at the hospital after planning to birth at home, she was there. Jacqie walks between the veil of two worlds as only another mother can as she has done that sacred dance herself. I could not recommend anyone more to support you during the vulnerability and beauty of childbirth."
“Jacqie held the most sacred of spaces for me when I was carrying our youngest child. Jacqie loved me through that pregnancy in a way no one else could; unconditionally.
She reminded me how to breathe- I knew how to breathe (this was my 3rd birth)- but I was emotionally broken and I could not breathe - until she reminded me. She looked me in the eyes and helped me remember that I WAS strong enough to do this- when I decided that I wasn't. She gave direction to my other supports about how they could really help me. She advocated for me with the hospital staff in a way that was respectful and appropriate yet assertive and in a "taking control manner. She empowered me. She convinced me that I could birth my baby the way I wanted- and I did! (100% naturally in a tub!)."
"YOU NEED HER! I have known Jacqie for most of my life and she was meant to be a doula. This is just one of the things she was made for. Jacqie filled a magnitude of roles that day. She was strong, competent, calm, and encouraging.
She was able to read my cues and would step in or step back with ease. With her support, I had the calm birthing experience I desired, with the pictures to prove it! She also worked seamlessly with my midwife and was able to maintain professionalism while remaining candid with us."
"Jacqie was a wonderful support person during my birthing experience. Not only was she there for me, but for my partner too. She helped him stay calm.
