Elias Chapman

First off, Thank you Janelle for everything you helped us with during the entire laboring process, from coming over to help clean up to the false alarm we had. You're just so damn good at what you do.

If you're looking for someone who is the embodiment of what a true Doula is, you shouldn't look any further.

Whether or not you're a naturalist who believes in a total holistic birth, or someone who has a scheduled induction/ceserian, Janelle would be an amazing addition to you and your entire birthing team/experience. 

She really believes in the natural power of the female body and it's incredible ability to bring life into this world. She's so very supportive, yet never overstepped a boundary. She's always around when you need her, but never over-bearing. In our experience, I personally couldn't have asked for a better Doula to have join us on this amazing Journey. 

So look no further for someone who will make your birthing experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible. 

20/10

I reached out to Janelle about a month and a half before my due date. I was wanting an all natural birth and I could tell she was very educated on the topic and I was just absorbing all the information I could. We met up and instantly I felt a great connection! We had multiple meetings before baby arrived, she was always available to me for any questions I had and was so helpful in my pregnancy. She never made me feel stupid or uncomfortable, when I had false labor she was by my side and helped me figure out what was going on. She reminded me of the positivity when I was feeling negative. She was very attentive to my emotional needs and was like a sister I could rely on! During my labor she knew what to do before I even knew what I needed, from beginning to end she was encouraging and right by my side. Even into post partum I know I have a lifelong friend who is so caring and compassionate! I could not have asked for a better doula and friend. I feel honored that I was able to have her at my birth And I highly recommend Janelle to everyone looking for a doula!

I have reached out to Janelle as I was having some troubles and complications this time around postpartum. She reassured me on concerns I had and helped me tremendously with adapting on how to pump correctly (who knew that even was a thing! I sure didn’t until I ended up causing damage to myself with the wrong sizes). She is trust worthy and well educated.
