Hello and welcome! I'm Danielle: mama of two, wife to a scientist, and complete birth nerd. If you've landed in this space, chances are you are seeking doula support for your pregnancy and birth (if not..why are you here? Kidding :) )
Hiring a doula is one of the best things you can do to ensure your birth is safe, empowering, and enjoyable. With over four years of doula experience and over one hundred families served, I have learned so much about the importance of meeting families where they are, tailoring support to my clients' specific needs, and making a personal connection with each birthing person who hires me. I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge, experience, and birthy-wisdom with you as you prepare to grow your family and bring your baby home.
A little more about me. When I'm not attending births (and the weather is nice), I'm usually exploring outside with my family. During the week you'll find me being a mama to two kiddos: Annika (three) and Tony (one). I enjoy exercising, baking and decorating cookies, reading mystery books, and taking walks along the Boise River.
.....and a little more about my birth doula experience. I certified as a birth doula with DONA International in 2017, and again in 2020. I have received professional training in postpartum mood disorders, bereavement, Rebozo, Spinning Babies, childbirth education and breastfeeding. I trained for two years as a hospital doula at Mount Carmel St. Ann's in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to my private Idaho birth doula practice, I also support clients as a doula team with two other doula agencies in the Treasure Valley.
