Jeanelle was my doula for the birth of my daughter Teslin. She was excellent in the meetings we had together leading up to the big day and offered a wealth of knowledge. She was also very open to my choice of having an epidural and I felt no judgment with my birth plan. During my labour, it was taking a long time to see the anesthesiologist for pain management, Jeanelle showed my partner how to apply pressure to my back while she applied pressure to my knees to help with the contraction pain. She reminded me to relax my face and jaw while pushing which in turn helped me remain much more calm and at ease. I would highly recommend her to anyone expecting a baby.

Jeanelle was a very helpful person to have involved in this delivery… Jeanelle was patient, reassuring and helpful to the woman. As well, she attended the c section when the patient’s partner was unable to do so. She will be an excellent doula and I enjoyed working with her.

My wife and I had our first child in November 2016. Having the pre labour classes with our doula, Jeanelle, really helped and more so at the delivery. Jeanelle was an excellent support during labour, not only my wife, but me as well and I would not only recommend having a doula, but having Jeanelle by your side!
