My partner and I were so grateful to have had Danielle as our doula. From the moment she told us she would open her books for our birth month, she made us feel like family. Her endless support continued throughout pregnancy and postpartum. With it being my first pregnancy, I was looking for someone who would provide the nurturing touch that the medical field lacks. She absolutely fulfilled that need, while also providing so much knowledge and wisdom along the way. I immediately felt comfortable enough to get her opinions on EVERYTHING and she was very quick to respond to texts, calls and emails. She made the day of my son’s birth so comfortable and relaxed. It was worth every penny to have her by my side, making sure I was aware of everything going on and prepared for things to come. She spoke up to medical staff on my behalf, and made sure I got skin to skin time after my c-section. There were a few other times she made requests for me, which I didn’t even know about until after the fact - she handled it so gracefully! She got along with everyone in the hospital and just felt like another member of the team. She also made sure to take plenty of photos of me and my spouse’s first moments with our baby - I will cherish those photos forever! I would recommend Danielle to anyone - especially queer families who want that extra support and understanding from a beautiful soul.
