    Jannelle’s approach as a doula is uplifting, kind, and empowering. We worked together as soon as I knew I was expecting. Her attention to detail and ability to immediately assess how I was doing, remove extra stress. She knew where to insert her support, and how to focus her attention where it was most needed. She’s compassionate and any family would be blessed to have her.

I am a mom of one who is passionate about health and wellness. I am a Holistic Practitioner and Creative. I love helping others and creating so I am here to serve humanity mind, body, and spirit through educating, encouraging, and reminding people of their power. My call is to assist women on their journey to live their best lives and vibrate at their highest level. I knew from the age of 12 I would be destined to work with women, but wasn’t sure in what way until I lived a bit longer. I have completed the Journey of Young Women program which is a training in facilitating circle for young women of coming of age. The program was transformational in my own journey as a woman. I felt a greater acceptance and reverence for myself and the earth/Nature. Becoming a supervisor in the USAF and mentoring young Airman brought me to my current path in coaching and doula work. I worked in both food service and fitness while in the service which grew my interest in nutrition and fitness. I enjoyed yoga from the first time I took a class in college and always wanted to develop my own regular practice and decided to train as a yoga teacher in order to meet that goal and share with others the peace it brings me. I wear many hats all in the name of helping others be the best version of themselves loving themselves completely and living authentically.

Care philosophy

Gain continuous mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional support before, during, and shortly after birth to achieve the healthiest and most satisfying experience possible. I'm here to educate, encourage, and remind you of your power so that you make informed decisions about this milestone/ sacred journey.

    Quantanique was an amazing support physically and emotionally through out the pregnancy and laboring process. She was knowledgeable in all areas that I had questions regarding my higher risk pregnancy and anything she hadn’t encountered before she worked diligently to research and help find me the best information to establish the best plan of care. I appreciated her insight as well as her support through such a difficult time!
