Do you want an informed & intuitive birth experience

pregnancy through postpartum?

Heck YES, I'm IN!
The unknown elements of growing and birthing a baby can bring on big (and often overwhelming) feelings.

Two pink lines or a digital read out confirmed it...you're going to be a parent. Congratulations! From that moment forward, you've been doing all the things to prepare for this big day.  In this moment, is there any inch of you feeling like you're not quite ready?

You may find yourself here as a first time parent, wanting to understand more about your body and what birth might be like.  Perhaps you've birthed before and were left with an experience that was in no way what you'd hoped for. 

You may want to know what to expect, but you're not even sure where to start. And that's okay. You are here to learn.... and I'm here to support you in doing just that. 

Now imagine...

  • Feeling confident in communicating with your birth provider, sharing goals and visions for your best birthing day. 
  • Understanding prenatal testing options and knowing questions to ask when they are offered to you.
  • Entering labor with a sense of peace, prepared with your preferences for birth and how to best communicate those with your birth team.
  • Knowing options for both medical and non medical comfort measures and interventions.
  • Seeing your baby for the first time and feeling confident in feeding and caring for your newborn.
  • Setting yourself up for success in the postpartum transition and throughout the fourth trimester.

If any of this sounds like a dream, I want you to know that it’s absolutely possible for you. And I know that, because I’ve been exactly where you are now and have created this course to help you achieve something you really want.

Your birth experience matters.
If you're ready to learn about how to create a positive birth experience...


When it comes to childbirth, knowing your options and having time to explore them is so very important. Finding education and guidance for this major life event can leave you feeling confident as your memorable day approaches.

While the instinct to nest typically sets in at the end of pregnancy, preparation can be beneficial at any point.

Identifying your goals for childbirth and beyond, facilitating them to be met and feeling supported in doing so?

That's where it's at.

When you work your way through Nesting, you'll notice a shift from...
Wasting time going down the Google rabbit hole, piecing together unreliable information from biased or opinion-based sources.
Having a single place that is evidence-based (taught by a Registered Nurse and mama of two), to log-in and learn when and where it's most convenient.

Believing that when it comes to birth, you're to do what you're told and say yes to everything.
Feeling confident advocating for what feels best to you, after learning about your body and your options.

Not even thinking about what happens after birth. Being laser focused on birth is all there is to consider.
Identifying the needs you may have postpartum, and lining up resources in advance. You are now set up for success in the first 40 days and beyond.
If you're ready to go from being overwhelmed to feeling prepared, but you need someone who will gently be there to guide the way...

I am right here, ready to help!

Instant access to a comprehensive and evidence based learning experience. Enjoy an uninterrupted life schedule, at your individual pace. Designed with every birth in mind, Nesting was created and delivered by a NICU and Postpartum Nurse. This educational course will leave you feeling confident, empowered and prepared for your best birthing day.
So, what is Nesting anyways?

Nesting is an Online Childbirth Education Course Bundle that lends the opportunity to obtain a deeper understanding of birth. From the first trimester of pregnancy through postpartum, it also gives you tools to best support progressions in each chapter. of your journey.  More importantly...support each other throughout.

No more struggling. No more worrying. No more wasting time

Here's how the Nesting Bundle breaks down...

Prenatal Wellness

A strong start is given with this module, covering health and wellness throughout your pregnancy. Leading up to labor, we focus on ways to prepare your body through movement and nutrition.  Shifting your mindset within each trimester allows space and time to connect deeply with your pregnancy. Exploring options for birth providers and locations, prenatal testing, and signs to watch for all help to pour a solid foundation. You can then structure the support needed and create confidence for your best birth experience.

In this first course, you’re going to learn:

  • Overview of Pregnancy by Trimester.
  • Prenatal Care, Testing & Preparation
  • Birth Providers, Locations & Options
  • Nutrition & Movement
  • Mindfulness & Connection
  • What to Watch For

Birth Progressions

We spend a great deal of time here, as it's where the foundational pieces are placed. A deeper knowledge builds the framework upon them, bringing you an informed understanding of what happens in each stage of labor.  From an anatomical and hormonal perspective, we dive deep into details on common interventions, variations and ways to find comfort and connection in any birth location. This helps you to build out your plan or preferences for your birth and beyond.

In middle one, we will explore:

  • Pregnancy Anatomy
  • How the Body Prepares
  • Stages of Labor & Birth
  • Comfort & Connection
  • Variations & Interventions
  • Birth Preferences

Beyond Birth

SO much energy, time and effort is made to prepare for the day of birth.  But what about for what follows?  Here, we cover what to anticipate following the birth of your baby.  Taking it further, knowing how to best care for yourself, each other AND this fresh new life you've created.  We are creating space for ease during this transition and for confidence in newborn care and breastfeeding basics. Learning ways to build support to help you flourish and thrive in your fourth trimester happens here too.

In this final course, you’ll be learning about:

  • Postpartum Care
  • Postpartum Adjustments & Transitions
  • Understanding Your Newborn
  • Care of Your Newborn
  • Basics of Breastfeeding
  • Tips for a Strong Start
I've built implementation into the curriculum to make sure you reach the finish line...

From recipes to keep you nourished, to swaddling tips for your sweet babe, I've got you covered. Worried you'll miss out on hands on learning because this is online? Fret not! You'll get at home practice opportunities and I'll be right there to guide you.


Space within the course platform, to keep you connected to others who are also on this incredible journey along side you.  Whether near or far, in pregnancy or postpartum, we are all connected through the magnificent invisible thread of parenthood. 


When it comes to the process of learning, it's not something that should be rushed.  That's why your investment with me includes lifetime access for as long as the course exists.  Log in anywhere, anytime and work through it at a pace that feels good to you.  Plan to birth again in the future?  Use this as an awesome refresher without having to pay another dime!


Are you a note taker or list maker?  I've got you covered!  Downloadable PDF's throughout the modules are there for your convenience to reference and work though if that's your jam.  A detailed course outline also gives you an idea of where to head for a refresh and how long you'll spend in each part of the course.

I'm Janelle Marion.

As a Registered Nurse, I have attended hundreds of births and cared for many, many mamas and families in the immediate postpartum period before they journey home.  What an honor this has been, truly. More times than I can count though, I've had parents cry out to me, wishing they'd done more to prepare for what they had just experienced.  I've witnessed them struggling to process their birth because they had no idea leading up to it, the twists and turns that birthing a baby can take.  This motivated me, time and time again, to become a Childbirth Educator.  Moving beyond the bedside as a Postpartum Doula and Breastfeeding Specialist gives me the opportunity to dive deep with each expecting parent. Their questions lead the way and their fears are validated and eased.  Having this time to process options and make decisions that are informed is so valuable...and so important. 

Let's learn together.

Are you a perfect fit?

  • You want to know more about your options in birth and how to create an experience that feel best to you.
  • You're interested in understanding interventions and variations, medical and non-medical approaches. 
  • Preparing for both the expected and unexpected is important to you.
  • You want to step into your postpartum chapter with confidence for newborn care and feeding. 
If any of these sounds like you, keep reading, because you’re exactly where you need to be.
If you're ready to own your birth experience,


With the customized, detailed online learning platform I have created for you, the information we cover together can be referenced as many times as you’d like. From the comfort of your own home, a coffee shop a military deployment...you name it.

 I provide a beautiful balance of visual, audio and tactile learning modalities. I am committed to meeting the various needs of each family and to help you retain the information presented.
