Meet Danae


A little about me...

After running a marathon, skydiving, and taking backpacking trips through the BWCA, I have come to realize that I am someone who gravitates towards physical challenges. Once I found out I was pregnant, I approached childbirth similarly; challenge accepted. But even the fear of skydiving was no match for the external and internal fear that I found surrounding child birth (especially in the midst of Covid-19).  It took planning, education, and surrounding myself with supportive people to face those fears, and truly create the sanctuary that became my birth space. 


As a doula, I have now had the opportunity of helping so many other families achieve that sanctuary for their own birth experience. Bringing a baby earth-side is no small task, and it looks so different for everyone. This is why helping my clients process fears in a safe and non-judgmental space is so important to me. The birth space is sacred, and the people there matter! I am honored every time I get to step into that space with someone.

In addition to my Childbirth International doula certification, I have also completed volunteer doula services with Roots Community Birth Center, graduated from my internship with the Minnesota Birth Center in 2023, and I am currently an active member of the Twin Cities Childbirth Collective and of Evidence Based Birth. My knowledge is ever-growing, and I continue to take relevant classes for doula work, including on the topics of VBAC support, supporting inductions, and bereavement doula services to name a few. I have, and will continue to support all types of birth! Hospitals, birth centers, home births, transfers, inductions, epidurals, first time, 9th time, etc...  

When I am not doing doula work, you can find me checking out new coffee places, walking my giant newfie, or snuggling with my own two little ones.
