Birth Doula Intern Anissa Abdel-Jelil

Birth Doulas - Trained Labor Support Professionals

Hi! I’m Anissa and I’m a DONA-trained birth and postpartum doula. I’m passionate about birth work and enjoy supporting people as they grow their families!

Bodies are magical and complex, and it can feel isolating to undergo tremendous amounts of physical and psycho-social change throughout your birthing journey. Together, we’ll create a trauma-informed space where you can bring as much of yourself as you would like, including your intersecting identities, into your childbirth experience. I’m excited to get to know you and support you as you prepare your body and home for new life!

When I’m not working, I’m geeking out about all things religion, technology, and ethics (I graduated from Harvard Divinity School with an MDiv). I’m also a dedicated plant mom – forever on a journey to find optimal lighting in my home, as my pug Luna trails.
