Labor & Delivery
Jess and Mary were both great from the start. Mary's "induction" massages were amazing and I am excited to go back for massages regularly. They listened on our initial tele visits and tuned in to the areas I had anxiety about and needed help. They were very patient with me leading up to labor and gave lots of helpful advice. Jess was so fast getting to the hospital when I said I was ready for her. Jess did not leave my side the entire duration of labor and delivery. I would not have made it through my VBAC without her coaching and reassurance. She was a Godsend. Jess and Mary are a great team and I am so glad I found them.
"Mary at Portland Doula Collaborative encapsulated my placenta after my second birth. I can't tell you how big of a difference it has made! Less than 2 weeks postpartum I have so much energy and feel almost fully healed. My placenta pills have helped tremendously as I adjust to being a mom of 2. I will definitely recommend this service to friends!"
"Mary was amazing. I would not have accomplished what I did without her help during labor and delivery. My boyfriend said "hands down the best money he has spent". Mary literally talked me through every contraction and I do not know what I would have done without her help.. No joke. Definitely recommend all first time moms that are expecting to give PDC a call. I was so torn about having someone there to help, but couldn't be any happier that I decided to."
