About / Bio
After having an amazing doula experience with the birth of her first son, Dawne knew that she wanted to provide the same kind of nurturing support to other couples. She has been a DONA certified labor doula since 2011 and is a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor through UCSB, (CLEC), as well as Childbirth and Happiest Baby on the Block Educator.
“I believe that the birth of your child is one of the most spiritual moments of your life. You will always remember the moment when your child is born; The first time you hear their voice or see their face. The day that you became a parent. It’s my honor to hold space for you as you crossover to your new roles in your family and help you preserve that memory.”
In 2015 Dawne relocated from Los Angeles to Southeast Wisconsin with her amazing husband, two beautiful boys and in 2016 welcomed her daughter to the family with a beautiful homebirth. Her hobbies include training for triathlons, teaching yoga and playing in nature with her family and four Chihuhuas.
