Hi, I'm Danielle.
In this day and age there is so much information about childbirth, infancy & pregnancy out there. Does it seem like every person you meet at the grocery store or on facebook has advice to give? As a doula and childbirth educator, I am here to help you navigate all that information and help figure out what works best for your family.
Epidurals, birth plan, induction, birthing stool, baby dance, hip squeeze, do all of these terms sound new to you? That's where I can come in as a childbirth educator & doula. I am here to answer all you questions and help you decide what is works for your. My responsibility is to help you facilitate your birth experience and empower you during your birth, pregnancy & postpartum period.
Is my baby sleeping to much & getting enough breastmilk? Why can't I put my baby down? How cam I rest AND take care if a baby? Those beginning days, weeks and months can be filled with uncertainty & questions. As a postpartum doula I can help assure you of normal newborn behavior as well as help find the right professionals if needed. I will be there to help with household duties so you and your partner can do what you are meant to- bond with your new baby and rest.
I am a mother to 3 beautiful daughters- with their births and breastfeeding journeys uniquely theirs. Having such different experiences with my daughters has only enhanced and added to my real life experience that I can pass on to my clients. I have lived in the Hudson Valley area most of my life. And am married to my high school sweetheart.
