    Danka is a godsend! Shortly before our daughter was born, I found Danka and her colleague, Sierra, after happening upon an article in The New York Times about how everyone should have a postpartum doula. Indeed. After an initial phone consult, my husband and I met with both doulas when our baby was only one week old. We hit it off with Danka, in particular,

    Working with Danka feels like a seamless transition between complementary skill sets. Where I was unable to support my clients further Danka was able to step in and build upon the infrastructure I had worked with the client to establish.

    She is grounded in what she knows as an experienced and studied professional with the bold awareness of the life long student that she is

    When baby #2 was on his way, I didn't know how I was going to take care of a newborn AND a 2 year old, as well as maintain my household and my sanity. When Danka told me about her postpartum services, I was so relieved that I had found help! Instead of "stuff for the baby" that we didn't need, I told anyone who

She was genuinely curious & invested in my well being, which made me feel supported and not lost as a first time mom-to-be.

    She is practical, approachable & lovely. When my birth experience turned out

    Danka is an amazing doula! She is a wealth of knowledge, and an invaluable asset to have as a part of your prenatal, birth, and postpartum team. We met with her a few times before the birth of my daughter, and she helped us prepare for a home birth with great insight and advice. She was easy to reach, and highly responsive when questions arose

    Danka helped me after the birth of my second baby. She was excellent at making me feel relaxed and like everything around the house was being taken care of. She cooked meals, folded laundry, wore the baby while I put my toddler to bed, and even brought her ice cream maker from home to have a special activity to do with my toddler while I
