Hi, I'm Danielle.
As a Doula & Childbirth Educator I believe your body was meant to carry and birth your baby. In this day and age there is so much information about childbirth out there. Does it seem like every person you meet at the grocery store or on facebook has advice to give? I am here to help you navigate all that information and help figure out how to be informed about your choices.
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. I am here to answer all you questions and help you decide what is best for your family. My responsibility is to help you facilitate your birth experience and empower you during your birth and pregnancy.
I come equipped with knowledge and techniques to help manage and control contractions. I will help protect your birth space and make sure your wishes are met. I will not take the place of your partner; on the contrary I am here to provide emotional and physical support for them as well. I have had the honor to share in many families births and am continually amazed by the power of a woman’s body and the love her partner can provide her in these cherished moments.
"At first I didn't understand what a Doula was or why my wife needed one. Now that I have gone through the labor and delivery process I can honestly say that every couple needs a Doula. She really helped us out in more ways than I can explain, like at 3 am when I was exhausted she was with my wife breathing through contractions and I was able to get rest so I could truly be there for my wife and I knew she wasn't alone."
