Home Birth Care

In-Home Care

All prenatal and postpartum care (including labwork) is provided in the comfort of your own home (or in your office, or at a park) convenient for you.

Holistic Wellness

Traditional, herbal, mind-body approach to perinatal wellness with guidance and support on health, fetal positioning, and physiological labor progression.

Birth Education

All clients receive access to my personal resource lending library and the Esali Birth online birth class community, including birth prep for unassisted Free Birth.

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.  Providing families in the Mid-Ohio Valley and surrounding region with the opportunity to be cared for with a birth-is-simple 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.

Client Autonomy

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 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 seeking a midwife for pregnancy, home birth, and breastfeeding support, TTC and looking for fertility support, interested in labwork for in-depth understanding of internal health, or improving wellness for hormonal balance I look forward to chatting with you about options for care.  I serve women and their families without labeling risk, but sharing the services I am able to provide for your specific situation whether that is full midwifery care, a recommendation for another provider, 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.

Insurance Reimbursement

For all clients, a payment plan is available to help this care to be accessible without insurance.  Most Health Share Ministries and HSA/FSA accounts will cover my services in full.  Most of my clients do not have insurance coverage or choose not to use insurance to cover the costs, are not high-income families, and save to cover midwifery services.  If you choose to utilize insurance to cover costs, it can be helpful to contact your insurance company early in your care to help determine what kinds of services they are willing to cover.  After services are paid in full, clients submit their own claims.  I can provide my NPI number and supporting information to help you with your claim submission, but I do not provide coding or billing services.  Please contact for any questions.
