Hello! My name is Jaclyn Taylor, but most people call me Jackie. I live in Salem with my 2 beautiful daughters and new son and my husband, who was my highschool sweetheart! ;-) I am actually an R.N., but have found such a passion in the miracle of pregnancy, birth, babies and breastfeeding, that I have decided to devote my extra time to living my dream, which is, helping and supporting you! My RN experience is primarily Labor & Delivery, Postpartum care of mom and baby and also Pediatric care/advice along with lactation advice and assistance. Please take note that while I am hired as a doula or a breastfeeding counselor I am not working under my RN license and will not be able to do normal medical/nursing duties.
I do have my Healthcare provider CPR certification for infant to adult / AED, and am Certified in Neonatal Resuscitation(NRP), also I have been certified in AWHONN - Advanced (Fetal Monitoring), again, these are skills that give me background, but are not utilized for decision making, advice or as a part of my doula role.
I am certified as a Labor Doula, and Breastfeeding Counselor through CBI (Childbirth International) www.childbirthinternational.com, and am looking forward to adding even more services to offer when complete! I currently offer 2 methods of Placenta Encapsulation and am also a Young Living Essential Oils Distributor. I have taken several courses on using essential oils in pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum, please ask me for more details.
I have supported many women and their families through pregnancy, attended births. and supported them postpartum, while also helping with a large spectrum of breastfeeding issues and questions both in the role as a nurse and as a doula. If you would like to speak with some of my past clients let me know and I can arrange that for you!
Please contact me if you would like to know more about me or what I do or if you are interested in seeing if I can offer you what you are looking for!
