Jai Olive Wellness did a phenomenal job leading up to, during, and after birth. I felt very prepared about what to expect during the process because Jazzmine's teachings were very thorough. During the birth, Jazzmine was very attentive not only towards me but also to my husband and hospital staff! After the birth, Jazzmine followed up way beyond the requirements of her contract. She truly provided well-rounded and compassionate care.
I met Jazzmine by coincidence through a mutual contact when I was about 37 weeks pregnant, and from the very beginning, she was very open and informative with an inviting spirit. I had been looking for a doula to help with this pregnancy, an African American doula in particular, so it was a no brainer that I needed her.
Jazzmine was extremely supportive and caring throughout my entire experience with her. She provided my husband and I with great advice to prepare us for delivery, helpful tips to make labor and delivery easier on me, and a sense of comfort during this uncertain time dealing with the COVID pandemic.
I appreciated the open communication and that I could reach her through different avenues (phone, text, email). She’s amazing with following up postpartum as well and just having that extra ear to vent to and navigate through my feelings, anxieties, and concerns with was definitely needed. I would recommend her services to anyone a million times over.
Jazzmine is the gospel truth! I ordered the postpartum box for my SIL and she called me every time she used it raving about how wonderful everything was. The scents were perfectly balanced, the ingredients were high quality, and shipping was incredibly fast. It’s so nice that we have folks like Jazzmine who take the fourth trimester seriously and provide some much-needed care for new parents. 10/10 would recommend every time!
