Janelle Marion, RN
The Chosen Nest
As a Registered Nurse, Certified Breastfeeding Specialist, Mother and Friend, I can tell you that there is a way to start this feeding journey that can lessen feelings of overwhelm and angst and build you up to begin with confidence. It starts with a solid foundation. I'd love to lay the groundwork with you as we explore the many aspects of breastfeeding and how to format an empowered and individualized approach. Whether you are pregnant currently, a new parent or in your postpartum chapter, there is a place for you and I welcome you to learn more about preparing, establishing and navigating this together.

Indigo Rising Birthwork
Hey, glad to see you here! I’m Talia, a cis-gender, BIPOC active duty service member, currently living on Suquamish land with my husband, and two wildly amazing kiddos (an almost 5 yr old and 7 month old), and adopted cat--BMO.
Don’t let the active duty military part fool you, my primary passion is advocacy, empowerment, and supporting my clients and their families in navigating their reproductive journeys. Reproductive justice is my jam, and informed consent and trauma-informed care are main characters in my services.
As a birth and post-partum birthworker, I offer support to people and families along their reproductive journey--however that may look. I am a full-spectrum doula in training, meaning in addition to pregnancy, postpartum, and birth services, I also provide abortion, loss, adoption, and preconception support. Lastly, I am a huge lactation nerd and am wildly passionate about supporting new parents on their infant feeding journeys, regardless of how they choose to feed their baby.
