My experience with Jenel has been nothing but positive! I've had the privilege of having her attend the births of both my children, once in 2014 and now again in 2017.
Jenel is very talented and a well of knowlege in many areas that all seemed to come together when she was my doula. She not only was there for me during the birth, but made herself readily available weeks prior. Whether it was to pop over to give me a massage to ease pre labour discomfort, relax my mind when baby was taking longer than expected, relax my hip muscles in preperation for birth or answer my late night text messages to give me invaluable advice and tips easing my anxieties and reasurring me all was okay. I knew I could trust her and felt comfortable sharing my concerns with her.
When it came to the birth itself, the moment Jenel arrived at my house I immediately felt more at ease with things. She was able to subside the intensity of my contractions substantially by using massage, counter pressure on my hips and suggestions of movements. She also gave me confidence in how I was doing by giving gentle words of encouragment and affirmations.
Jenel is very good at what she does and I would recommend her services time and time again. Choosing the right doula for your birth is a decision that can make a world of difference in your experience and, in my opinion, you can't go wrong in choosing Jenel! Afterall, I did choose her twice;)
