Janaina (she/her) has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an MBA in Business Management. However, after having her daughter in 2014, came an enormous desire to study childbirth and parenthood in order to support other families towards this journey. Thus, in early 2017, she decided to pursue her passion, vocation and work by becoming a Birth and Postpartum Doula.

She is certified as a Birth Doula, with many courses, workshops and seminars related with, and she keeps studying daily to provide an evidence-based care to families. When she is not helping other families, she spends most of her time with her own family and friends. She loves being surrounded by people, but sometimes she also loves been alone, enjoying her own company, reading, meditating or listening to music.

Janaina currently supports families in Toronto area, privately and through Birth Mark. She speaks Portuguese and English and would be glad to help the Portuguese-speaking community on the challenge of having a baby away from their native homes.
