I adore my husband and three kids. We live in East Tulsa, close to my grandma. We love beautiful days outside. We visit the zoo, play disc golf, and geocache as a family; my five year old thinks it's the most exciting thing! We go to the drive-in. We love to eat locally! Some of our favorite restaurants are Burn Co., Pie Hole Pizza, Elote, Killkenny's, Not Your Grandma's Cupcakes, and Bill's Jumbo Burgers. My passion is building family relationships. I love finding ways to enhance family togetherness. In my family that means babywearing, trips to the zoo and parks, festivals, church, and Waffle House breakfasts. In your family it may look like me sweeping the floor, teaching you the safety checks of babywearing and co-sleeping, helping you massage your baby, or just listening to you because you need to feel heard and reassured that you are on the right track for your family. I love my job of supporting new families and would be honored to support yours!
Jade was amazing! She is the true example of a postpartum doula. Her calm demeanor made me feel at ease and we got to know each other right away. Her presence made me feel confident as a brand new mom and that I was doing a good job. I did not even ask her to do anything, she listed off things and asked if she could do them to help me.
She watched me care for my baby and guided me with things that might make it easier, taught me to baby wear and even watched my newborn so I could shower. Her knowledge, experience and the education she provided me were incredible. Next baby, I plan to use her as postpartum doula even more. It helped me know I was not crazy with my emotions and I was normal. We talked a lot about a new normal and how it can take 6 months or more. I would highly recommend Jade! Every mother needs a postpartum doula not just for physical help, but mental and emotional help!
With my first child, I had a very diffictult post-partum experience. When I became pregnant again, my doctor recommended I research post-partum doulas since we have no family who lives nearby. My husband and I interviewed four potential doulas and Jade stood out as a top candidate for both of us. We hired her before our son was born and expected to begin working with her right after he arrived. Unfortunately he had to spend his first five weeks in the NICU. Jade touched base often and encouraged us through that difficult time; she has been an integral part of our "new normal" since bringing our son home.
Jade is the definition of professional. She arrives on time or a few minutes early every time we need her. She handles sensitive/confidential information in a highly competent manner and I consider her to be and integral part of the team of professionals caring for my son's health needs. I feel confident to take a nap, take a shower, run errands or complete other tasks while Jade manages the care of my son and completes household tasks. After a visit from her, I find myself more relaxed and able to enjoy some quality time with my family because I am rested and less overwhelmed at the chores to be completed.
I feel empowered in the important work I am doing as a mother after visiting with Jade. She takes a vested interest in the needs of my family and has a very broad skillset from which to offer advice. Since she is a mother herself, it is comforting to discuss the trials and tribulations of parenthood with her, and I enjoy sharing "mommy wins" with her too! Jade is passionate about her work and has a servant's heart.
Raising a family is difficult and rewarding work. Because of the assistance and support Jade has provided, I find myself able to enjoy my family more. I can confidently giver her my highest recommendation!
This has been my first time using a postpartum doula, and I would definitely recommend it! Jade Park has been a huge help, she was over just the other day and I got to take a shower and a nap while she watched my nb, 1, 3 and 4 year olds. She also did my dishes, and laundry, and cleaned my kitchen! It was so relaxing to not have to worry about any of it while I rested.
It was baby four and my husband works 10 hr shifts so Jade really helped keep everyone happy and having fun and I didn't have to worry but could focus on bonding and meeting new baby's needs. And I didn't feel like I was neglecting the others it was as if we had a happy fun friend for a few hours in the evening to wind the house down. So worth it!
