As it was my first birth, Janalyn was so patient and resourceful throughout my pregnancy and gave me the strength to switch medical providers a week before my due date. In addition to serving as a solid soundboard, she showed my husband and I how to relieve my swollen feet and helped my insomnia with essential oils. She was always there for us when we needed her. We labored at home for 3 hours before going to the hospital and arrived when I was in active labor, which was when I wanted to go. Janalyn was at the hospital with us for over 20 hours and was awake even when my husband passed out for a little bit. I hate pain and am such a weak sauce physically. There was no way I could have labored and pushed epidural free for that long without Janalyn. Unfortunately, I ended up getting a c-section because my baby’s head proved to be too big for my pelvis. Definitely not the outcome I wanted but with Janalyn by my side, I knew I gave it my bestest shot at delivering naturally. I’m so glad I met Janalyn. She is an awesome human.

As a first time mom I knew I needed an advocate to help us navigate the birth we wanted. Meeting Janalyn for the first time my husband and I knew immediately she would be a perfect fit for us! She has such a calm, joyful, loving, compassionate, and knowledgeable presence. Her guidance throughout our pregnancy was invaluable. We felt like she was a part of our family.

Her prenatal visits were so helpful to us in figuring out what we wanted and what to expect.  Our son was transverse and she gave us tips on how to move him head down, and it worked.  She came over several times to show us useful comfort measures, perform acupressure/reflexology and used essential oils to help us induce labor. I was 41+1 when I went into labor naturally and she supported us in our decision not to get induced in the hospital. My labor was difficult and long and she was by my side the entire time. Janalyn believed in my ability to give birth to our son, even when I lost hope and wanted to give up. I pushed my baby for 4 hours and her unyielding support and confidence  inspired me to keep going, and i was able to deliver my baby vaginally. Without her, my husband and I would have been lost and for sure would have been pressured into a C section as I was not progressing up to our doctors standards.

Janalyn is more than just our doula, she’s become our friend and advocate, and is forever apart of our awesome bubble ??

I can not recommend Janalyn enough! Despite the fact that my birth did not go as planned, I left feeling incredibly strong and so empowered. She helped me navigate several road blocks that popped up, making sure that my birth wishes respected. My labor was short and incredibly intense. During that time, Janalyn helped me work through every contraction by giving me counter pressure, hip squeezes, and words of reassurance. She suggested different laboring positions, coached me through breathing, and ensured that I had everything I needed. 


If you are looking for someone who will believe in you and help you find your own strength, Janalyn is the doula for you. My husband and I are so thankful for her insight and support throughout pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.
