Jo was amazing from the first time we met! She has a very calm aura around her which instantly made me feel comfortable and safe. She is knowledgeable in her field and is surrounded by others who are a wealth of information in case she doesn’t know the answer to one of your questions. She always followed up with me, sending me info and links to anything I ever asked about. She was responsive and prompt. And I think most importantly, she made my husband and I feel very supported. She made it clear she genuinely cared about our family. She was right there for our birth and no matter what turn it took, she was there to support me, my husband and our new baby. I couldn’t recommend Jo more to help you bring your new baby into this world!

We were lucky to have Joanna Taleno on the birth of our third child, she visited us before and after birth too, respected our wishes and help us during this journey,  showed a huge knowlegdement of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. Without family near us Joanna was the support we needed. She took wonderful photos of the birth and my two oldest kids had the opportunity to be present too, with her kindness they trusted her. Joanna helped me to communicate with the nurses and doctors, shared? with us many resources.I feel I recovered? faster, breastfed easily and have more confidence raising my baby and two brothers. Lastly Joanna is bilingual, very valuable for families whose first language is Spanish.

Para mi haber tenido a joanna como mi dula me dió confianza porque ella abla mi idioma y podia expresarle mis ideas acerca de cómo yo quería mi parto y ella sabía escucharme y responder a todas mis preguntas me gustó la conexión que hubo con mi familia cuando la conocimos !!Gracias Joanna por todo el apoyo que me diste y por haserme sentir que en ti tenía una amiga para apollarme en ese momento que es maravilloso y ala vez un poco difícil pero con tus consejos fue más fácil .MUCHAS GRACIAS JOANNA.
