About Dooli

This is one of the great perks of being a birth doula!

I love my job!

My name is Jillian ‘Dooli’ Jolley, but you can call me Dooli the Doula!

I am a DONA and MotherMe certified birth and postpartum doula,  Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, and Texas State Department of Health Breastfeeding Educator. My passion for birth and for the mothers bringing life into the world began when I was pregnant with my first child nearly two decades ago. I have since added another four children to my family, gained invaluable training and experience, and supported numerous families in their quest for a better birth and postpartum experience. My experiences, my education, and my love for women and families fuel my passion and drive to help mothers and their partners to create a birth experience that will make them feel strong, empowered, and deeply satisfied. What that birth looks like will vary from one family to another, and as a doula, I love to help mothers learn what options are available to them, so they can decide what is important to them and how, ideally, they would like to see their labor and birth unfold. I then support both the mother and her partner in whatever choices they make for themselves and their birth. We can’t always plan how birth will unfold, but I truly believe that with preparation, education, and lots of really great support, mothers can be empowered to create an experience that can be treasured for a lifetime, regardless of circumstances foreseen or unforeseen. Whether this is your first birth, your fifth birth, or anything between or beyond, I would be honored to accompany and support you on this life changing journey.

I am located in Frisco, Texas, and serve the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
