"Being first time parents there was a lot of unknown about going into labour. I was nervous about giving birth, and had some health complications throughout my last trimester. Janalee was knowledgeable, supportive and calm which made me less nervous going into labour. As it turned out giving birth was not actually that bad, and was a lot easier than being pregnant. I am glad to have had Janalee there before and during the birth. I also did not have my mother in the country and will likely have her there in the future. I found having a doula very helpful, as she replaced the role I think my mom would have played."
"If you compare my birth preferences with the actual birth of my son, the two are very different but I still feel so fulfilled and blessed. Janalee helped me make lemonade out of the lemons I was given and I would hope that everyone has someone like her by their side during labour."
"Janalee is so full of life and passion. She is one of the most intelligent women that I have ever had the pleasure to know. Her passion and knowledge surrounding birth support and pregnancy is truly inspiring. I can always count on her for anything - whether it be advice, support, presence, love, motivation (and so much more) she's there without a doubt. Janalee has so much to offer and I would recommend anyone to develop a relationship with this beautiful woman."
"I hired Janalee very early on in my pregnancy and it was the best decision I made. She was there for me every step of the way - from one trimester to the next, she explained everything I didn't understand and listened to all my worries. She spoke to me and treated me in a way that made me feel powerful, in control and respected."
