For as far back as I can remember, I have always had a passion for birth and babies. After completing my DONA birth certification and postpartum training, I am ready to support you with the resources necessary to make informed decisions about your pregnancy and birth. My goal is to provide you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions throughout your birth and into the postpartum period. It is a privilege to be in a position to be able to positively influence people’s birth experiences and I would be honored to be a part of your birth and postpartum journey.
As your birth and postpartum doula, I will provide you with childbirth education and loving support. My knowledge and assistance aim to help you feel heard, supported and understood throughout your pregnancy and birth. As well as, provide you with reassurance and confidence when caring for your newborn.
DeAnna is an amazing doula! She was invaluable to both me and my husband. This was our first pregnancy and we wanted to have a doula with experience to encourage us along the way. I wanted to complete childbirth naturally and she helped me actualize my ideal birth.
I felt very comfortable with DeAnna from the first time I met her. She’s very warm and friendly, and I had a great feeling about her. DeAnna was responsive as soon as I hit early labor in the middle of the night. She was our advocate in the hospital and clarified procedures to us, helping us make decisions and letting us know what the hospital staff were doing. DeAnna was very nurturing throughout, as well as patient and attentive. She was swift to propose laboring positions. In addition, she asked questions and made recommendations that were in my best interest. DeAnna was a wonderful coach in times where I could not cope. On top of all this, she created a serene ambiance with candle lights. She always offered me water in a timely matter.
I can tell she’s passionate about what she does and cares about her clients. DeAnna is marvelous and I highly recommend her.
I am a three time natural birthing mama now. Going into my third birth with my baby girl Zoee, I already had some experience under my belt but with the busy life of chasing down two already, I felt that I didn't have adequate time to prepare for this birth to do on my own. Boy, was I happy that I chose to hire a doula. DeAnna's delightful personality lit up the room and helped to put my mind at ease; her candor made it easy to talk openly with her. She has a very nurturing demeanor and thus was very attentive to my needs and made sure to support me and give me comfort when needed. She made the difference in my birth. Hiring a doula was the best decision that my husband and I ever made and now believe EVERY couple needs to have a doula in their birthing corner.
