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.

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.
