Hello! I'm Danielle, trained birth doula and Owner of dne birth services. I attended birth doula training through Birthing Beyond, LLC and trainer Vanessa Flood, in Topeka, KS. I adhere to the DONA Standards of Practice and ethics. You can read the DONA Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics here.
After giving birth to our boy/girl twins in April of 2018, I quickly realized just how special and meaningful my birth doula was to me during my own labor. I knew that I wanted to be able to provide what I received to other women who were embarking on a very special journey of their own.
"Find your tribe. Love them hard." This quote hits me hard as I reflect on my journey with infertility, becoming pregnant with not only one, but two babies, and my own birth story. Community is everything in motherhood. I cannot wait to have the opportunity to walk this path with you.
Outside of helping women with their birth journey, I stay busy keeping up with my little ones, coaching fitness classes, trying new recipes and sewing.
