Janarra Anderson

Postpartum Doula

I am Janarra Anderson, a Postpartum Doula serving San Diego County. My passion came from my postpartum period after my first child. It was the most painful, incredibly hard part of my journey as a Mother and I wished then that I had more support. Now, my goal as a Postpartum Doula is to offer heart-centered, intrinsic, holistic care to Mothers and Caregivers to embody the phrase “where nature meets nurture”.
