She was startled by her waters breaking at 34 weeks gestation and was unprepared for the sequence of events and interventions to follow. She describes how valuable having a doula by her side was during the high-pressure moments. Jess is now pregnant with her second child and provides insight into the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown on her pregnancy.
