Jaelan's Client Testimonials

The best part about my experience with New Life was Jaelan exceeding all my expectations of what a doula could provide. She was available those last long weeks of pregnancy where every new sign or symptom had me questioning “is this labor?”. During my labor she was so calm and comforting to myself, husband, and sister. She brought a peace to the room and gave me strength when I needed it most. I can truly say I love Jaelan and am so happy she was a part of bringing my little guy earthside.

Jaelan is such an amazing woman and doula. She was exactly what we needed whenever we needed her! She made my partner, mother and I feel so prepared and safe! Love her!

I came about birth work in a rather “round about” way. My husband and I relocated to Albuquerque in 2016 from our home state of Texas, where I taught veterinary students for several years. Shortly after our move, my mom died suddenly and completely unexpectedly. This loss completely rocked my world. I spent several months feeling lost and full of grief. My life felt like it had little purpose. I was in a new state with no family, no friends, no career, and I was learning what life without a mother was like.

After some deep reflection, I started to realize that helping others gave my life purpose. I love teaching, connecting with, and generally supporting other people, and I have always been captivated by birth. I grew up watching my three older sisters become mothers and listening to my mom recount her four beautiful birth stories. One day it clicked! I wanted to support families through life’s biggest transition - birth! 

In May 2017 I trained with DONA International. It was later that I found out my mom had trained as a doula in her twenties, bringing her journey and my own full circle.

Furthering my love of teaching, in April 2018 I became a Certified Childbirth Educator through Academy of Certified Birth Educators. Prenatal education is one of my favorite parts of being a birth doula. 

In addition to birth work, I’m a wife to John and mother to Sullivan, I run my own blog, and I’m the Brand Manager for New Life. I love fresh air, cold beer, and jamming out to Queen.

Witnessing birth is never something I take for granted. I am forever grateful to the families who allow me to support them through this special time and for the relationships we create along the journey.

I couldn’t have asked for a better doula than Jaelan. She made me feel so comfortable and confident; this was my first baby and I was terrified... until Jaelan came along. My experience absolutely would not have been the same without her.
