Labor Doula and Birth Photographer
  1. WHAT IS A DOULA?
    A doula is a trained professional with experience in childbirth. A doula provides continuous physical and emotional support to a mother. Doulas also present information to help make informed decisions before, during and after birth to help you achieve a healthy and positive birth experience.
  2. DOULA BENEFITS
    Research has shown that having doula support during your birthing experience can have the following benefits: Decreased medical intervention Shorter labors Less pain medication Fewer cesarean section Higher breast feeding success Positive birth experiences Partners benefit too: Decreased stress/anxiety Confidence taking active role
  3. PHOTOGRAPHY
    As a doula I provide support to you during your birth in anyway you desire, this includes photography. I also book clients for birth photography only, but on a limited basis so message me today with your due date to check my availability.
ABOUT ME
I'm a retired military wife and mother of two adult children who also happen to be in the military.  My passion for the past 21 years has been in the maternity field in one aspect or another.   
Bio
​MEDICAL ASSISTANT

I have worked with several OB/GYN offices and have gained extensive knowledge in that field to support and reassure you during your pregnancy. 
LABOR NURSE

I worked as a Labor and Delivery Nurse in a hospital with LDRP suites caring for mothers and babies through their entire hospital stay.  I have experience with natural birth, induction, VBAC, and cesarean sections.

Welcome to Labor with Danielle....   thank you for taking the time to research doulas as this means you understand the advantages of having one attend your birth.  Birth is a very intimate life changing event, so choosing a doula that you can connect and feel comfortable with is important.


This is your birth!  As a doula I will provide unbiased nonjudgemental support while providing personalized care to meet your needs and assist you in meeting your birth goals.  My medical background enables me to build a relationship out of mutual respect with your clinical care team.  This is essential to help facilitate open communication regarding your birth plan and receiving information to make informed decisions.


When not supporting mothers I'm caring for my 3 little furbabies (miniature schnauzers).  I enjoy traveling with my husband of 26 years, playing with my niece/nephew, and visiting my children every chance I get.  


As a retired military wife and mom I feel deeply connected to the military community and am proud to provide services at a discounted rate to active duty military families.
