If you are early in your pregnancy, getting ready to birth, or have just had your bundle of joy–you are at the right place. The Nesting Stage is all about preparation, education, and relationships. We have built our services around the idea of building a tangible relationship with our clients, so we understand that it takes more than one or two visits before birth to actually solidify a true connection between a birth worker and a client-this is why we provide more visits before birth. The Nesting Stage honors a mother’s trust as a delicate gift and when given, it allows the mother to feel safe during her birth. Our I. -S.E.E model (Inspire, Support, Educate, and Empower) ensures the best service to our clients. What are you waiting for? Book a free consultation to get all of your questions answered!
Happy International Doulas Week!!! With the recommendation of Teresa JH, I decided to hire a doula. After lots of thought and consideration, Reggie Shaw and I decided to hire the amazing Joy Dean. Although I didn’t have the delivery I ”planned, ” Joy was there every step of the way pre and post-natal. I don’t just consider Joy my doula she is an adored friend! Much appreciation to all the doulas out there especially those fighting to support women during COVID-19. Joy, thank you for all your love and support ❤️ Mila, Reggie, and I.
Joy is amazing!! She joined my birth team late in my pregnancy and she just jumped right in and helped us with the things we weren’t prepared for. She was very attentive, always willing, and wanting to help. I couldn’t imagine having the amazingly painful lol unmedicated birth without Joy being there. She believed in me when I was ready to quit and I appreciate that more than she knows!! Thank you so much Joy! The Jackson ❤️ you!!.
My husband and I attended The Nesting Stage birthing class with Joy and we enjoyed it very much! Joy is a sweetheart and a great teacher. She made each class fun to attend with her witty personality and passion for her work. I highly recommend!
So I didn’t actually get to have the pleasure of having Joy as my doula. I started (for a 2nd time during this pregnancy) looking into doulas towards the tail end of my pregnancy. And my baby girl came early (the day before Joy and I were scheduled to meet).
What I can say is that based on all of our conversations and the recordings she’s posted on her page (I watched a few of them and I believe she may have sent me one that I watched also), I know for sure that she was going to be the perfect doula. She’s very responsive, knowledgeable, funny, personable, and just down to earth. I honestly thought that we’d end up the best of friends even after birth. She just seems that cool.
And as extra words of advice, don’t let anyone convince you that you don’t need a doula. EVERYONE NEEDS A DOULA! Doulas need doulas!!
It doesn’t matter if hubs, and your mom, and closes girlfriend or sister, will be present while you are giving birth. None of them carry the training, and skill of a doula. They just aren’t qualified. I don’t care how much they love you and want to be there to assist. I promise their level of assistance won’t come close to that of a doula.
So to sum things up, I’d totally recommend Joy to any woman considering a doula. I believe she’s perfect. ❤️
