All prenatal and postpartum care is provided in the comfort of your own home (or in your office, or at a park) convenient for you.
Traditional, herbal, mind-body approach to perinatal wellness with guidance and support on fetal positioning and physiological labor progression.
Thank you so much for everything you’ve done. You’ve helped me look forward to birth with no fear and be excited about the process. Thank you for selflessly giving of your time to answer my questions, and to support me. Thank you for giving the kind of care that lets me know you actually care!

Family-Centered Home Birth
Midwifery Care with a holistic focus in the Mid-Ohio Valley and surrounding region provides families with the opportunity to be cared for with a birth-is-normal approach. You and your family’s needs and desires are my central focus creating the space for attentive and individualized care for pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and postpartum. You are encouraged to birth in a way that feels instinctive and desirable to you and to be an active leader for the midwifery care and support you would like to receive.
Traditional Midwife Guardian
With a back-to-basics style of holistic traditional midwifery care, unnecessary interventions are avoided and this normal life event is supported through mind-body-environment guardianship. You will receive counseling for overall wellness, nutrition, maternal-fetal alignment, movement, and therapies to support spontaneous physiological birth in the comfort of your own home. We work together to develop a trusting relationship that helps you to enjoy my presence in your space whenever you desire support through labor. Learn more about my background on the Meet Danielle page.
Autonomous and sovereign family decisions are at the core of my belief as a birth guardian. I enjoy caring for families that seek to take responsibility for their wellness by giving-birth-back-to-women through education and support of informed decisions and physiology. I can teach you and your birth team to take complete sovereignty over your care and lead support to the degree that you are comfortable with, for activities such as prenatal care assessment, palpating baby’s position, catching baby, and and assessing the well-being of your baby. You are the guide of your birth space and I am available to share wisdom and skills along this journey.
Serving through the Childbearing Years
Whether you are TTC and looking for fertility support, interested in labwork for in-depth understanding, improving digestive health for hormonal balance, or seeking a midwife for pregnancy, home birth, and breastfeeding support I look forward to chatting with you about options for care. I serve women and their families how they desire and need without labeling risk, but sharing the services I am able to provide for your specific situation whether that is full midwifery care, transfer of care or transport, or parallel care alongside an alternate birth location. I also host the monthly MOV Breastfeeding, Birth, & Parenting Social in Parkersburg, WV to support our MOV community through these years, which is a great place to stop by and say hello.
