I have always been fascinated with pregnancy and birth and I have spent most of my life walking this journey with many women. This past year I completed the DONA international doula training along with 2 breastfeeding courses to make supporting women more official! I have also completed a 12 week Bradley method child birth education course in addition to basic and advanced childbirth education classes. I am well versed with a rebozo and in many labor coping techniques. On the side to being a mother myself, my husband and I run a photography business. I am available during labor, birth, or immediately after to capture photos of these amazing moments, and can include a photography fee if interested.

Madison Horwitz

“We used Darian as our doula for my pregnancy and birth just last week. There aren't enough good things to say! My birth was unmedicated and my husband and I took the Bradley Method of birthing classes. After taking these classes, we quickly realized we would benefit from someone else in the room who was on our side, and could be a buffer between the doctor's and myself. My husband was well prepared to coach me through my entire labor, but said having Darian there to bounce ideas off of was crucial. They worked great together as a team to get me through. Her knowledge of positions and things to try during labor made all the difference when my little one was not facing the right way very close to pushing. The baby successfully turned, and a very long labor came to a close :) Her gentle and kind presence, knowledge, and advice throughout my whole pregnancy had me more than prepared for birth, and made everything so much easier!”
