I firmly believe that my role as your doula is to support the decisions that you are making for your family, and to never impress my own personal opinion on you. Being a parent can be hard; I want to make sure you feel supported, empowered and validated in your choices. My hope is that in working together, you will feel confident, abundantly supported and in control of your process. I have experience with miscarriage and infant loss, as well as birth trauma and maternal mental health concerns. I find that these are often the topics that we tend to hide from, but ones where we need the most support. My role as a doula is to provide you emotional and mental support so you can find your groove as a parent. Be gentle and kind with yourself; being a parent is hard! We're here to support you.

Chelsea Dinner

I had Janice encapsulate my placenta. She was very knowledgeable and explained the whole process! She came to the hospital to pick it up and got to meet my baby and husband, she stayed a little bit to ask how everything went and she said she’d have everything done and back to me in 24 hours! When we arrived home from the hospital the capsules were waiting in our door with all the instructions and her contact in case I needed more information. She’s so sweet because there was a container of brewers yeast muffins waiting for us too! 

After I started taking the capsules I could contact her at anytime to ask questions through out the few weeks! Then she sent a reminder for me to place the rest of them in the freezer for when my period arrived back! 

Overall I am thrilled with her placenta encapsulation service! And I will definitely do it again for my next babies ?? I feel it truly helped with postpartum depression! 

Thank you Janice!

This last pregnancy was a whirlwind. We moved three days after my OB discovered I had ICP (Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy), and I was leaving my entire support network behind. I don't live anywhere near Janice, but she stepped up, monitored, and supported me from afar. She checked in, she listened, she offered love and kindness. When my baby was born a month early, she reminded me of the importance of self care and I appreciated that. She saw the warning signs of PPD/PPA and called me out on it, and then followed up on it. Her care for me, while not in person, was personal. She's still checking in, and I'm glad she is. She made the loss of my in person mama tribe hurt less by being active in my life through whatever means she could.

Janice IS a doula. Her very nature wouldnt let her be anything else. If you're wondering if a doula really makes a difference, and if Janice is the right one for you, the answer is unequivocally YES.
