When we started looking for a doula, we knew we wanted someone that understood and honored how scared our birthing space would be. Being first time parents, labor and delivery is daunting to navigate with not a lot of helpful information to women without being scary. I heard plenty of horror stories as telling people I was pregnant and wanted true support that would honor my wishes and fight for them when/if I was not being heard. My birth did not happen exactly how I was hoping however, it was perfect given all the excpetions and I could not have done it without Danielle with us. She brought a warm and claming presence from the moment we met with her and knew our needs and desires to make this birth memorable in the best of ways. Not only was she my guiding light as the person giving birth, she comforted and guided my fiance through what he could do for me and our baby. Going on this journey with Danielle was one of the best decisions we made while I was pregnant. I can't wait to work with her again in the future!
