Doula serving Ames/Ankeny/Des Moines, Iowa and surrounding areas​

In-person support and virtual support are available

Meet your Doula!

Doula Jazzmine

Hi! I'm Jazzmine Brooks, the "Rural Black Doula", and I am a professional full-spectrum doula in the Ames/Ankeny/Des Moines, Iowa areas. 

I also provide support virtually out of state to individuals and families. 

When invited to journey with someone through their reproductive health, fertility, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, or lactation journey, I become an ally. I am someone to walk beside you and I serve as someone to lean on when needed. I focus on providing support through evidence-based care, hands-on support, listening with compassion and an open heart, and treating families with dignity and love.

"Jai Olive Wellness did a phenomenal job leading up to, during, and after the birth. I felt very prepared about what to expect during the process because Jazzmine's teachings were very thorough. During the birth, Jazzmine was very attentive not only towards me, but also to my husband and hospital staff! After the birth, Jazzmine followed up way beyond the requirements of her contract. She truly provided well-rounded and compassionate care." - Jai Olive Client
