Meet Danielle

WHY DO I DO WHAT I DO(ULA)?  

When I became pregnant the first time, it ended. Sitting on the exam table, alone, in a cold room and miscarrying, I was overwhelmed. The OB/GYN on call, a stranger, studied the ultrasound machine in silence. She made brief eye contact, gave a polite “I’m so sorry this happened to you” and left the room. My husband, a grad student, wasn’t there. My parents were across the country along with my sister, my best friend, and anyone else I felt like I wanted to be with me in that moment - the most painful of my life.

 

I knew that next time - whether or not my pregnancy would lead to a healthy baby, I wanted support. 

After I discovered the magic of doulas, I decided to become one myself. I changed careers, and have been supporting families ever since. 

 

Pregnancy after loss has its own trials and special considerations, and as someone who has experienced it firsthand, I am honored to be able to help other women and partners on their journey.

 

With each new client, I am reminded of why I do what I do: every parent deserves to have an empowering, supported, and safe birth experience.

 

I am honored to serve the Treasure Valley birth community, and am committed to giving that experience to my clients, however they choose to birth. 

 

 

WHAT IS MY DOULA PHILOSOPHY? 

I approach birth with a realist's mentality: the only way OUT, is THROUGH! I believe that methodical preparation for labor and birth enables us to be more "in-the-moment" on our birth days. 

 

Labor and birth can be beautiful and magical experiences, but they don't always have to be picturesque! Labor is both physically and emotionally exhausting, and birth is messy! My job as your doula is to help you own your experience- whatever that looks like to you!  

MORE ABOUT DANIELLE 

 

I believe in the power of storytelling, and find the practice cathartic, healing, and beautiful. I work hard to create safe spaces for parents to come together and share their stories, and enjoy reading and listening to birth stories wherever I can. You can read about the birth of my daughter here

 

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 at EnVie fitness in Meridian, baking and decorating cakes, and taking walks along the Boise River.
