    Care philosophy

    I'm often asked by expecting parents what my birth philosophy is. It is this: birth is a physiologic process. It is something that our bodies and babies innately know how to do. I'm here to support the process, connecting with my clients, exploring their fears, and hopes and intentions for their birth, and help tap into their own spiritual, physical and emotional knowing of labor and birth.

      Jessamyn is as good as it gets. I’m a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) that has had many shared clients with Jessamyn. Jessamyn is highly skilled but more importantly, she is deeply present, empathetic, and exactly what families need when welcoming a new member. When Jessamyn is around, you feel relaxed, safe, and empowered.

      Jessamyn is experienced, supportive, kind and connected. She was basically our private tutor for all things pregnancy and birthing. What I liked most when we first met her was that she had hospital, birth center and home birth experience but wasn’t pushing us in any one direction, she was just supportive of us and our plan. We ended choosing to have a home birth with a midwife. My wife was in labor for around 18-20 hours at home and was very close giving birth but in the end she needed to rest so we ended up going to the hospital to have an epidural so she could sleep. Jessamyn was right there by our side after more than 36 hours. She worked harmoniously with the nurses and the medical staff while also advocating that the staff be transparent and communicate what they were doing when they were doing it. She enabled us to have a vaginal birth when it seemed the odds were against us. We are eternally grateful for the beautiful birthing experience she helped facilitate. She is a part of our family now.
