DOUBLE DOULA!

We are both certified birth doulas through DONA International and we offer combined experience, training, techniques, skills, knowledge, wisdom, availability, and love to those we support.

 

We sustain the complicated doula lifestyle by offering each other support, sharing our schedule, and learning from one another.  

 

Two doulas for the price of one!  We equally and collaboratively get to know you through consultation and prenatal visits so if there's unforeseen circumstances, illness, an emergency, etc., you KNOW the "back up" doula.

Birth Doula Package

Every human has the right to a safe, calm, excited, supported, and empowered passage into parenthood. This is not a reality to be taken for granted- it is spectacular and ultra special!

 If you want to increase your odds at having a highly satisfying experience where you feel great about your relationship with the people helping you, have a constant reminder of your options and abilities, and flexibility in asking for what you need and want, I'd love to be by your side.

Audrey Daniels

A doula is "a woman who serves". As your birth doula, I will use my training, experience, and my natural, deep intuition to serve you during your pregnancy, labor, and the birth of your child. It is my honor to provide personal, compassionate service that facilitates your desired atmosphere to be realized, helps you to find your confidence, increases your level of comfort, and guides you into your own strength for the miracle of birthing.

Testimonials

I have known Audrey for many years. Her intensely compassionate and service-driven character made her a perfect choice for a doula for my third pregnancy. After my water broke, Audrey was my first telephone call, and she was by my side less than 30 minutes after I hung up the phone. During the course of the next 19 1/2 hours, she never left my side. She helped me to create the ambiance I envisioned, in my birthing room. Audrey has an amazing gift for massage. She attended to my body and mind throughout my entire labor. Even during the most difficult moments (I had no pain medication), her calm and reassuring demeanor never wavered. I would choose to have her by my side for my next one, in a heartbeat.
