Birth December 2010
Our baby boy was born on December 17th, 2010. Jodi was with us for a long (multiple day) labor. She was calm, caring, nurturing, and supportive not only to mom-but dad as well. Jodi truly coached us through the tough points in our labor, offering strategies to move the labor ahead. Jodi worked collaboratively with the doctors and nurses and became part of the team. She asked clarifying questions of the doctors and nurses which helped to guide us. During a time in which I found it difficult to ask questions and advocate for myself, having Jodi helped to get clear answers for myself and my husband. We were so blessed to meet Jodi in the final trimester. Although she was truly a professional, she became part of our new family.
