My name is Danielle Anthony. I am a mother of two beautiful boys! I am the wife of a United States Marine. When I was pregnant with my first son, I made the decision to research and find someone that would be there for me. At the time I was under the impression that my husband would not be there for the birth of our son, because he was to deploy a few months before. I knew what I wanted for my birth plan, I wanted a completely natural birth. I wanted to labor at home, then go to the hospital once in active labor. I needed to find someone who believed I could do it and learn how to cope with pain without any medication. I spoke with my family and friends about my birth plan. Most of them thought I was crazy, that I wouldn't be able to accomplish such a feat, and I would end up with an epidural. This is when I decided to find a doula. I had heard that doulas were supportive of any birth the woman wants, and felt she could help me. Gosh she helped, my birth ended up being exactly how I envisioned it. I'm not sure what I would have done without my doula, or what would've become of my birth plan. In any case, she was so amazing she inspired me to become a doula myself. 

Now, I am here to care for and support all laboring women, with compassion and a nurturing touch. It is the pregnant woman's decision how she wants her labor and birth to happen. Medicine, or not, I will be here for continuous support no matter her decisions. I am certified with Birth Arts International.

My name is Hillary Ebling. My journey to becoming a doula took the long route. I worked in medicine for 5 years before to becoming a doula. During that time, I birthed my daughter (now a high-spirited toddler) and didn’t even know what a doula was! My husband and I thought we knew what to expect, but we later learned we had just skimmed the surface of our options!

When I returned to work, I still loved working with expectant families, but was more aware that the priorities and procedures emphasized at my job didn't align with what I found most important. I didn't get to counsel new parents as much as I wished at prenatal appointments or have the chance to support a client throughout her entire labor. I knew I wanted to be part of a more holistic approach to pregnancy and birth.

As soon as I learned about the role of doulas in maternity care, I began my training as both a birth doula and postpartum doula. Now, I am certified through DONA International and I dedicate my time and energy to empowering expectant families so they may have the best chance of achieving their ideal birth.
