To say that Jamie is an incredible person and an amazing doula is a complete understatement. Not only is Jamie a beyond amazing doula, she is a dedicated wife, mother, and returning student. At the surface, you would never know all of these other extremely demanding and ongoing responsibilities exist in her life, as she makes you feel like you are her only obligation by way of her compassion and dedication for what she is doing and her sincere concern to what you are going through. However, beyond the surface, amidst the days, weeks, and months of pregnancy that you get to know Jamie, you see just how each of her roles as a dedicated wife, mother, and student play a strategic part in who she is as your doula. The heart and mind one needs to be a successful wife, mother, and student is that same heart that is crucial to being a doula one not only wants but needs. Jamie is organized, prompt, funny (hilarious!), SO very caring, resourceful, energetic, full of life, full of ideas, and so full of love. And, I know it would be easy to list all of those wonderful characteristics and simply say Jamie is all those things. But, folks, she truly is. She is all of those wonderful things and so much more! You see this the moment she walks in any room, her contagious smile waiting to greet you with open arms and an open, sympathetic heart.
My partner Alix and I would always chuckle when we asked Jamie a question, no matter what it was concerning, Jamie had not only one, not two, not three, but countless answers, ideas, resources, etc.
Our healthy baby girl is now a month old and thriving. We look back on the precious time when she was curled up inside, getting strong and big enough for this outside world, and know we couldn’t have done it without Jamie’s ongoing love, guidance, or immeasurable amount of support by our side.
We are forever grateful.
