Janalyn Pomeroy, Birth and Postpartum Doula
After completing her Masters Degree, Janalyn was the birth coordinator for a adoption agency where she had the opportunity to walk along brave women who were making an adoption plan for their unborn baby. She was a labor coach for over 25 birthmothers. This work instilled in her a love for the labor & delivery process and how crucial having support, education during delivery and the early stages of parenthood are in parents feeling confident and empowered. When she became a mom she got involved with MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) where she found and gave support, education and leadership training on all the diverse aspects women go through in these early years of parenting.
The culmination of these seasons of her life has brought her to the wonderful world of being a doula. There are few things more sacred in life than the birth of a baby and the first few weeks of having them home with you. It is a time of immense joy, pain, hormones and lack of sleep. It is her desire to provide parents with an extra layer of support giving them special moments to breathe through this sacred time.
