I literally love Janelle! Even though we had a short amount of time to work together she helped me work through my pain! She kept me focused, checked in with me and continuously told me that I can do this! She's super friendly, funny and just good to be around! Thank you for being apart of my labor and delivery!

Janelle is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I am convinced that is should be a requirement for all expecting mothers to have a doula. Janelle completely made my labor experience one that I will forever remember!!! I met Janelle when I was about 34 or 37 weeks I can’t remember lol I just know I was super close to being full term. Immediately Janelle and I connected. She is extremely professional and personable at the same time. Extremely passionate about child birth, Janelle made sure that I was well educated about the labor process and what to expect. This woman is everything! One of the things I appreciate about her is the fact that she took the time to figure out what I wamted out of my birthing experience and gave me just that. She is extremely flexible and super positive. She does a great job at changing the narrative around labor and encourages the idea of natural birth.
The goal for my birth was to see through a water birth and I was very ADAMANT on having little to no pain medication. About 12 hours into labor I was physically and mentally exhausted. It was in this moment I knew a water birth was not likely and had to break the news to Janelle that I had decided to get an epidural. Janelle was very supportive of my decision and made me feel very comforted, knowing I felt like I had disappointed her. She was there every step of the way, from pregnancy to postpartum. This women is absolutely amazing f and I know for a FACT I will be using her again when I decided to have another little one ( long while before that happens again lol)
I HIGHLY recommend Janelle to any expecting mothers who is looking to have a supported birthing experience mentally, physically and emotionally. ??

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.
