"I'm not sure that any words I can say will adequately describe what an amazing person Jaclyn is and what an incredible support she has been to me and my little one but this is my attempt. She has truly gone above and beyond any expectation I could have ever had. I have experienced many trials through this last year of nursing my son and through every one of them she has been there. She has even gone as far as to come to my house at 10 o'clock at night to help with nursing him. Anytime I have had questions she has been so attentive and knowledgeable. I am truly honored to know her and to have had the pleasure of receiving her services. I wouldn't think of recommending anyone else!" (Bronx 2015 / Breastfeeding)~Alise~
"Much thanks to Jaclyn Taylor for assisting me in the birth of my daughter Kaydance born May 2, 2012 at 10:53am. It was so wonderful having her there for my daughters birth, she was well versed in her knowlege of labor and and in her instruction of what to do in all stages of labor. She also was very helpful with her knowlege in breastfeeding, she was very patient and answered all and any question I came up with. I couldnt have asked for a better coach and mommy herself to help me through this wonderful life experience, if your looking for someone like this to assist you I highly recommend her.

"Words can not express the gratitude my husband and I have for all of the help, advice and support that Jackie provided us throughout our pregnancy and birth. Our pregnancy was not a simple one as we found out early that we were “high risk” resulting in bed rest after twenty weeks. Her support and guidance was given in a way that not only calmed us down but informed us on all options available, risk factors, pros and cons etc. to any issue that came about without pushing us into one decision over another. From the beginning early stages of pregnancy, birth and currently postpartum she has been our main support person. Lending us literature and gathering us information to any question or concern that we had or continue to have as new parents.
I will forever be in debt to her for all of the love and support that she has provided and would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone having a baby, especially first time parents!" ~ Shelby~ (Harlie Mae 2/14/2013)
I was so happy to have Jackie Taylor there to support me during the labor of my third child. I do not believe I would have been able to have a natural labor without her support. She did a very good job at listening to my needs and comforting me when I felt like giving up. Jackie was very knowledgeable and also helped guide my husband on how to comfort me when he wasn’t sure what to do. After I returned home from the hospital Jackie came over and helped encapsulate my placenta. I had wanted to encapsulate my placenta to help with postpartum depression. Without her there I wouldn’t have been able to do it. She did a great job. I would highly recommend Jackie.. ~Tami ~ (Brielle Raelyn 8/8/2013)
"As first time parents, my husband and I were looking for a knowledgeable, supportive, and easy-going doula to support us through labor and delivery and help me achieve my goal of a natural, medication-free birth. I also wanted someone who could effectively connect with my husband and help support him during this process. We found all those qualities in Jackie and were blessed to have her as our doula! Throughout my labor and delivery, she was extremely helpful and made the process much less stressful.When I went into labor, Jackie came to our house and her experience and knowledge helped me feel comfortable laboring at home longer than I would have otherwise. When we arrived at the hospital her natural birthing experience, along with her nursing background, allowed her to work extremely well with hospital staff and to be our advocate. It was very calming and reassuring to have someone there that knew what was going on with me physically, and was also familiar with hospital procedures. After my son was born I commented on how surprised I was that no one tried to give me an unneeded IV. It turned out that Jackie had seen the nurses getting an IV ready and she quietly told them I didn’t want one as long as it wasn’t medically necessary. She handled this so effectively that my husband and I didn’t even notice. This was just one of the many ways that Jackie worked with the doctors and nurses to implement our birth plan. Her presence was instrumental in helping me make it through delivery without any pain medication. After our son was born, she was extremely helpful and answered several breastfeeding questions. Jackie’s help through our son’s birth and first few days helped make the experience even more special. She is a great doula and we highly recommend her!!" ~Laura & Zack~ (Quentin 6/2013)
"I love Jackie's personality and her medical background, she was comfortable and made us feel safe and normal. She really conveys that she sincerely cares. The photos were an unexpected bonus! The price was perfect. Her communication skills are excellent, she's very good about following up.
It was awesome that she was there for us even though I delivered early! I wasn't the model patient, but she did awesome!"

"Jaclyn Taylor is a wonderful, sweet and amazingly loving woman to have involved in any birth. I was lucky enough to get her at my VBAC in a hospital setting, where she could be so helpful and knowledgeable in many different areas. She made me feel like family, I had no problems getting all crazy and naked, I felt so normal being just in labor and growling and laughing. I truly had tons of support from her, she helped me stick to my birth plan and stood up for my rights in my darkest of times. I don't think I could have achieved my VBAC if she wasn't there to help me in so many ways. She is a wonderful doula. 10 out of 10 stars!!!" ~Cassie~ (Blythe 1/2014)
"Jaclyn Taylor gave me much needed advice before and during my labor. She was always available to me when I had questions or concerns. She was non judgemental and nothing but supportive. She also gave me much needed advice on breast feeding since his birth. It feels great to be successful with breast feeding and she has been a huge support in that."

"Jaclyn Taylor helped me throughout my entire pregnancy. She was one of my biggest support persons in my pregnancy, delivery and postpartum. I was so thankful to have her with me in the delivery of my son. It was a very long tiring labor, in which she unceasingly was by my side. Breastfeeding was a big stressor for me, but she ensured my son got the proper latch, and that I knew how to keep milk production up. With her help, I was able to breastfeed my son for an entire year during the busiest time of my life. I would 100% recommend Jaclyn. She is non- judgmental, professional, reliable and all around just an amazing person."
