Royal Oak, Michigan, Mom Shares about the Early Days of Parenting
Each client I work with is very special to me. New mothers choose me to be a part of their support system and I am so grateful to be a part of their early days of parenting!
Lesley hired me as her postpartum doula while she was still pregnant. That makes the interview so much easier! When you interview me during pregnancy, I am available to offer suggestions about common questions parents have about what to do to get ready for their baby.
Royal Oak, Michigan is such a great place to work, and I am so glad I got to spend more time there while working with Lesley and her family.
I love to work with families all over Metro Detroit, from Birmingham, Michigan, to Detroit, Michigan, and over to Chesterfield, Michigan. I live in Shelby Twp, Michigan, and so traveling to Rochester Hills, Michigan, was an easy hop, skip, and jump away.
From the first interview with this wonderful family I felt we would be a great fit working together. They agreed and hired me, as their postpartum doula, to support them after the birth of their second baby.
Kristen in Rochester Hills, Michigan is an amazing mother, and I am so appreciative of the time she took to share her thoughts about hiring me as her postpartum doula,
Thank you so much Kristen! I love that you mentioned that I was focused on caring for you.
Moms are my top priority as a postpartum doula. I believe, and have seen in practice many times, the value in caring for a mother. As a mother myself, I know that when I have my needs met, it is much easier to care for my family. I love that in my work as a postpartum doula, I get to offer that support to other women.

I love when parents spend time preparing for their baby arrive while pregnant. Heather and her husband contacted me early on in her pregnancy and we did our first interview via Skype! I love making the process of meeting me and discussing my services as easy as possible on potential clients and I was happy to offer them the Skype interview. Eventually we met in person and brainstormed some ideas where their baby might sleep, ideas for clothes and supplies to have on hand for their new baby and more. One of the benefits of hiring me during pregnancy is all the time we have to plan and prepare!
Heather took some time to write me a lovely testimonial. Thank you so much Heather!
"When we had our first baby Jill was our postpartum doula.
We met up with her prior to our baby being born, and quickly discovered she was an encyclopedia of useful information relating to babies and postpartum care, for the baby as well as the mom.
She helped us learn how to take care of a baby, from feeding to changing to soothing techniques.
She eased our anxieties when we had questions, and helped us build confidence in our ability to take care of our new baby.
We can't imagine what it would be like to go through this learning process without a postpartum doula like Jill."
I love this sweet photo of their sweet baby. I'm so grateful they allowed me to share her smile with all of you!

I had the absolute pleasure of working with a wonderful family in Detroit, Michigan. I asked them to share their thoughts about working with me.

"Jill has been a huge help and blessing to our family as we transitioned to a family of 5. I suffered from severe post partum depression and anxiety after the birth of our second child and knew we needed some help for our third.
Every time Jill came to our home I could just RELAX knowing that someone was there to support me and love on my baby.
Jill was always so helpful in answering any questions I had and helping me talk out any concerns or problems I was having with the baby or life after baby. Jill was a calming and warm presence in our home.
She loved on my older two children so well and they LOVED when Miss Jill came over.
I was able to catch up on sleep or shower when Jill came which is always rare as a new mom!
Our new baby had a cleft lip and palate and therefore required special bottles and often had medical devices in her mouth. None of it phased Jill. She always jumped right in and loved on our baby as if it were her own.
Our transition to a family of 5 has been smooth and enjoyable and I know much of this is due to Jill and the help that she was to our family!"
Lindsay, thank you so much for your kind words!
