Jenel was a great support before, during and after the delivery of my baby boy Lucas. She taught me a few great relaxation tips to utilize while at home in the late stages of pregnancy and for when labor began. Once at the hospital Jenel did not leave my side for the whole 20+ hour process. She used multiple techniques to help guide Lucas down in the right position (he was sunny side up in the womb). She also made sure I was always comfortable and relaxed, utilizing massage techniques, calming music and more!Last, she was a great advocate for me with the nurses, making sure I knew what was going on and my birth plan was followed. I am so thankful Jenel was there to get us through that crazy day! If you are looking for a doula I highly recommend Jenel!
Jenel added such confidence to my birthing experience...my doctor and I disagreed on going past my due date and she was there to ask the tough questions and make sure we were staying as close to my birth plan as possible which was to have an all natural labor and delivery. When my doctor insisted on induction Jenel was still my voice when it came to the rest of my delivery trying different positions or different vocal techniques. And in the end after everything she stayed by my side until I was ready for her to leave and was always available on the other side of the phone to answer any of my questions. Having a Doula was not only extremely helpful for me but added such comfort to my husband as well.
