Madriella Certified Birth and DONA Trained postpartum Doula

A San Diego native, I have over 15 years of experience working with children of all ages and wouldn't trade it for anything. After moving to Texas in 2010 and giving birth to two girls of my own, I quickly realized that the postpartum period was rougher than the world gives it credit for. Without any family close by and little to no support from all others, I struggled through what should have been the best time of my life. It wasn't until 2015 that becoming a Doula became a possibility and that's when I realized that I could give others the dream postpartum period that I wished I had. After my training in 2016, I started Nite Owl Postpartum Doula,  Now, five years later I alone have provided more than sixty families with the much needed support they deserve. I spend my time off enjoying every moment I can with my daughters(who are growing way too fast!) and my incredibly supportive Husband, exploring all the beauty San Diego has to offer. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve the postpartum experience that you desire!

Janessa

Madriella Trained Postpartum DOula

Another San Diego girl with a passion for children and families. Janessa began working with children straight out of high school, working directly with ages ranging from newborn to 6 years old. She also spent several years working with another Doula as her assistant. Her 10+ years in Early Childhood Development were some of the most rewarding times of her adult life. Having her son was the best thing that ever happened to her but also one of the scariest. After going into labor over four weeks early and watching her new baby being swept away to the NICU, She quickly realized this Momming thing wouldn't be the picture perfect scenario she had imagined. In order to enjoy the early years with her new little guy, she made a career change and stepped into the world of Cosmetology. After several years away from the industry and plenty of time to think of all the help she'd wished she'd had, she now wants nothing more than to help other new families during similar times. Janessa looks forward to the privilege of taking part in such a special time in your lives.

Jayci 

 Cappa Trained Postpartum Doula

Born and raised in San Diego, it was definitely a journey becoming a Postpartum Doula. I studied  cosmetology for about 2 years and have been a nanny for just over three years. I moved into the dental industry until that was cut short by a very difficult pregnancy. It wasn’t until I had my son 10 weeks early that I realized there is a fourth trimester, and it is the most crucial of them all. Spending 10 very hard weeks in the NICU with my less than 2 1/2 pound baby, showed me that you can’t and shouldn’t have to do postpartum alone. My postpartum experience gave me a drive that I didn’t know I had. The desire to be a back bone and open ear for moms and help to give them their picture perfect experience with their newborn no matter the situation.
